As crazy as it may sound, this Jersey girl has driven up to Boston (just for the night!) to see Ball In The House, so when I found out that they were performing less than 40 minutes away, there was no way I would miss it!
After a long day at school, I was energized by the prospect of seeing the new line up perform. Good friend Montario ‘Monty’ Hill, from DC, recently joined their ranks, adding his soulful baritone to the group. I had the pleasure of watching him perform with DC-based group, The Lobby, at SingStrongDC earlier in the year and he blew the audience away, helping to clinch the win of the Aca Idol competition. Cole Sherratt, their newest tenor joining from Houston, started singing and writing songs at the age of 13. Lastly, I couldn’t wait to hear James C. Jones, their new bass and former member of a group called The Fix. Little known fact, he may or may not semi know how to use nunchucks. Perhaps this skill will make it to the stage one day! 😉
They opened with an energetic 90s throwback, ‘This Is How We Do It’.
After a few songs, an original ‘Set The Mood’ was included.
One of my favorite songs that Ball In The House covers (and better yet off-mic!) is ‘Falling Slowly’.

A little over a month ago, Ball In The House released a seven track EP, titled MOVE. (Click here or here for full track listing.) I finally picked up my copy at the end of the show in PA. I proceeded to listen to it every single day, multiple times a day, for fifteen days straight. 😎 If you haven’t gotten your copy yet, or if you’re looking for a great holiday gift, you’re in luck! We are GIVING AWAY a SIGNED copy of MOVE to one lucky winner! See this page for entry. GOOD LUCK!
Hope to see you at a show soon,
