AcaVids- 5-31-13 – Making Up for Lost Time

Hi there. You may have forgotten about us, as we have been dormant for 3 weeks. But we have not forgotten about you. AcaVids is back, and there have been a ton of worthy a cappella videos released in the past few weeks. Here are a few to carry you into a new weekend and month with vocal music on your mind, and we hope to be back on a weekly schedule again starting Monday.

The talented and entertaining Bill Hare attended the recent Aarhus Vocal Festival and brought us back this amazing clip of Rajaton and The Real Group singing together as “Level Eleven”

Straight No Chaser was on The Today Show. I can’t embed it, but you can see the video on FB by clicking here.

Take 6 was on television too, on Good Day New York. I wish they hadn’t performed a song with instrumental backing tracks, but of course they still sound great.

If you were at Mile High Vocal Jam 2013 or BOSS2013, you probably saw UCD’s Mix perform. If you like good music, you probably enjoyed their performance a lot. Here is their audition video for Season 4 of the Sing Off.

Last, the Tufts Beelzebubs recently celebrated their 50th anniversary, and I couldn’t resist featuring a few clips which have started to surface online. I’m sure more will come, so just keep searching “Bubs 50th” and see what results you get.
