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.
We’re super excited to be joining with Chicago’s other premier vocal groups for a night of joyous holiday a cappella! One ticket allows you to experience five different a cappella groups:
Each group will be singing a combination of holiday classics and contemporary songs. This is an event you won’t want to miss! Also, all profits from the event will be donated to The Night Ministry, a charity that provides support and services to members of our Chicago community.
That’s right, friends. The Uptones have gone camping together. We actually left our heated, comfortable, functional, lovely homes in Chicago to travel together in the wild. We’re talking straight out of a Bill Bryson novel. Wood fires, no showers, hiking miles for food supplies, fishing, BEARS.
JUST KIDDING. There were no bears. Except for on the occasional garment. Also we might have stayed in a condo. On the beach. Still counts, right?? Just look at that view.
After a great deal of patio-singing (hey, Jim, whatchu doin there?)…
…and ice-cream eating (don’t worry only AFTER the singing)…
..and un-pictured Whitney-belting, Pitch-Perfect-watching, yoga, and horizontal running…
we feel pretty ready for an awesome new season. We might even actually all like each other.
Camping (let’s be honest) Glamping success!
