Never heard of them before. Will be listening to more
December 2010 and 2011, one of the US networks ran an a capella competition called The Sing Off. You can watch episodes here. Pentatonix won in 2011. It wasn't on last year and I presume because of public pressure, they brought it back this year. There are some absolutely amazing groups out there. It's well worth watching the old episodes. Street Corner Symphony (2010) was one of my favourite groups.
Thanks RJ - the kids had heard of them and we spent about half an hour last night on YT listening to them. Brilliant. Have you seen the film Pitch Perfect? My daughter watches it back to back. A teenie film, but I really enjoyed it, well, the first 10 times.
I haven't seen Perfect Pitch but generally I don't care for all-girl ensembles. Nothing sexist, I just think the voice mix is too top heavy. While all-male groups can still fill the high tones, there are few female singers who can produce a good bass tone.

Yes, my own band.... Sad, I know! But we have a gig in Bristol tomorrow night and I've been drumming along on my practice pads in preparation. And it was the last song I ran through.. So nah! Heh heh! :P
Note: Although we're a metal band, the vid is safe for work. There's no swearing in the song or offensive content in the vid. But it's definitely loud and not exactly what you'd call music! Heh heh! XD
