If you’ve been surfing YouTube lately, you might have heard some familiar voices in a pre-roll ad. You’re not just hearing things: six members of The Uptones recorded some music that’s currently running under Crate and Barrel’s holiday advertisements! Take a listen below.
The Uptones take you on a musical journey during their biannual concert using only their voices: no instruments are allowed! As autumn sets in and the once-warm summer air turns into the cool, crisp breezes of fall, come warm up and get campfire cozy with Chicago’s premiere a cappella group! If you are hoping for a rousing rendition of “Kumbaya,” don’t hold your breath, but if you’d like to hear cover songs from popular artists such as Adele, Justin Bieber, Carrie Underwood, and Shawn Mendes, you’ve picked the right camping grounds. From pop to country, from flashback songs to futuristic sounds, we welcome you to pitch your tent as we blow our pitch pipe. An fun evening of a cappella awaits!

In case you weren’t able to make it out in the cold a few weeks ago, here’s your chance to catch up with our latest concert. What’s your favorite song on our playlist?
It’s a Friday night and you don’t want to spend it alone, so bring a special friend or a few to check out the sweet sounds from The Uptones! You won’t even need a Netflix subscription, but a beverage of your choice is recommended to get you in the musical mood. You’ll get to hear us debut songs from artists like Tori Kelly and Adele, to name a couple. We’ll also be covering some of our favorites over the past year with songs from Walk the Moon, Taylor Swift, and more.
