Combining forces for the first time, two of the most acclaimed award-winning vocal groups create an unforgettable concert event. Boasting a remarkable 20 Grammy Awards between them, their range of styles covers nearly every genre of popular music from jazz to swing and gospel to R&B.
THE MANHATTAN TRANSFER
With worldwide sales in the millions, Grammy Awards by the dozen, and as veterans of sold-out world tours, The Manhattan Transfer has proven timeless! The 40th Anniversary of this group that is restless, adventurous, limitless and, as the Philadelphia Inquirer so aptly put it, a group that “still can sound dangerous!
The most awarded a cappella vocal group in history (10 Grammy Awards, 10 Dove Awards, a Soul Train Award, and more) recently celebrated their 25th Anniversary with a World Tour and heads to Las Vegas in “Georgia On My Mind: A Ray Charles Tribute” for a multi-week run! Heralded by Quincy Jones as the “baddest vocal cats on the planet!’, Take 6 (Claude McKnight, Mark Kibble, Joel Kibble, Dave Thomas, Alvin Chea and Khristian Dentley), is the quintessential a cappella group and model for vocal genius. Six virtuosic voices united in crystal clear harmony, against a backdrop of syncopated rhythms, innovative arrangements, and funky grooves that bubble into an intoxicating brew of gospel, jazz, R&B, and pop.
The Manhattan Transfer and Take 6 together at Town Hall… You could hear so much profound and delightful artistry. You could feel how much fun they were having. I can’t think of enough superlatives. How about “WOW 10!”
