May 25, 2018: Stiletta, Grace Mclean, Martini Glass, Blue Jupiter
We are thrilled to announce the all-female pop and dance a cappella group, Stiletta, will be taking the stage. Stiletta is the 2016 Harmony Sweepstakes Champions, and the first group in history to win First Place, Best Arrangement, and Audience Favorite. This powerful sextet has shared their power-pop vocals all across NYC and beyond. www.Stiletta.net
Live-looper, original songstress, Grace McLean will take the stage with a sound that combines Regina Spektor's quirkiness, Nellie McKay's jazz sensibilities, Fiona Apple's irreverence, Kimbra's sass and Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs’ rhythm. As a solo performer Grace has been seen at Lincoln Center, New York City Center, The McKittrick, BAM, the ACE Hotel (where she collaborates monthly with The Dance Cartel’s show OnTheFloor) and numerous other venues both uptown and downtown. www.gracemclean.com
Joining Stiletta and McLean will be the all-female group, Martini Glass, from Danbury Connecticut. Martini Glass sings pop, jazz, Broadway and gospel and was voted Audience Favorite at the A Cappella Connection Competition and has performed at recently at SingStrong New York. www.instagram.com/martiniglassaca
APRIL 20 LINE UP: WEST SIDE 5 • LOW KEY • BLUE JUPITER
West Side 5
Inspired by greats like Manhattan Transfer, New York Voices, and The Real Group, WS5 has crafted its own unique sound, characterized by highly original arrangements, complex harmonies, and outstanding musicianship. These Mid-Atlantic Sweeps champions have taken home first place twice, along with “Best Arrangement" and "Audience Favorite.”
Low Key’s style is best described as “Sexyshop.” Their warm harmonies took home first place in 2016 at the New York Harmony Sweepstakes. They have been seen on the Fox TV series “Gotham”, Z100’s Elvis Duran in the Morning, and have been featured at music festivals and corporate events for some of the biggest brands around.
