Bye Jordan – we wish you well; AKA now what?

We’re deeply sorry to announce the departure of Jordan, our fearless leader and founder of King’s Post, who is moving on to other things. Best wishes for whatever you do!

The rest of us are taking some time to regroup, rethink, and strategize.¬† We’re on the lookout for new singers of any type who are interesting in a cappella, although finding a true bass and/or a VP would be a major coup. If you know anyone who might fit the bill, please send them our way.

Keep an eye out – we’re not done yet, although we may reemerge under a new name. ūüėČ

Harmony Sweeps followup

We went, we sang, we celebrated. Lots of good feedback from the judges and a wonderful time seeing old friends and making new ones.

Harmony Sweepstakes, here we come!

We’re thrilled to be invited to participate in this year’s regional¬†Harmony Sweepstakes¬†, hosted at the historic Birchmere in Alexandria, VA, and we’re already working away at our set.¬† We’re doing something a little different from the last time we were invited – pop culture writ large – and we hope you’ll come see what we’re up to this time around.screenshot from 34th Harmony Sweepstakes page

Speaking of pop culture, we’re also working up a surprise for an old friend. Stay tuned and we may just share the video once we’ve sprung it. ūüėČ

Whoo hoo!

 

(O Holy Night ala N’ Sync, rehearsal cut 12/2017)

Whelp – we wrapped up a very successful holiday season with a gig at Blacksburg’s Farmer’s Market, where we were received with lots of applause. ¬†The evening before, our concert at Warm Hearth Village went of swimmingly and we were rewarded with a photo with Santa and homemade cookies! ¬†We’re taking a break to rest, travel, and enjoy the holidays with our other families, but we’ll be back and running in January! ¬†Blessed Yule, Merry Christmas, Joyous Kwanzaa, Happy Hanukah, and lovely, warm holidays to all of you from all of us!

Still on the hunt – true bass and VP

We’re charging forward with rep development. ¬†Bonus side effect – odd looks from passersby when we get caught singing Christmas tunes in September.

In the meantime, we’re still looking for a new VP and a true bass. ¬†With them we can level up our arrangements, so if you know any in SW Virginia, please send them our way. In other words, auditions are open.
