Summer Salute returns on Friday, June 2 at 7:00 pm on McConnell Plaza featuring special guest Rockapella. This talented group will perform a wide array of songs from Shambala, to Philadelphia Freedom and Rock the Boat.
The male vocal group Rockapella achieved national television fame in the early ’90s on the hit PBS show Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? Since then, they have toured the globe and provided a funky powerful soundtrack to several generations of vocal music fans. With buckets of catchy original pop songs, and complete contemporary revisions of sparkling pop and soul classics this group has always been the one to watch. The current Rockapella lineup features Scott Leonard, high tenor; Jeff Thacher, vocal percussionist; Calvin Jones, tenor: Jose Rodriguez, tenor; and Bryant Vance, bass. This lineup marks a new generation of Rockapella, who remain keenly focused on musical excellence.
