New York, NY Casting Calls: Seeking A Cappella Rockstars

Are you a former collegiate a cappella junkie? Do you indulge in guilty pleasures like The Sing-Off, Glee, and American Idol? Does your addiction to creating your own harmony lines give you away in every round of “Happy Birthday”? There may be help for you – read on.

The Current is an emerging co-ed a cappella group in NYC, whose musical heart beats for pop, rock, and other contemporary-ish stuff within the cultural soundscape, including indie and original music. We are a group of seven a cappella-philes, mostly college group alums, and we’re on the baby stages of getting a new party started. What we loved most about our former groups is what we are working to re-create here: high-quality sound, with a large amount of laughs and connection in the process. Taking ourselves seriously, while not taking ourselves seriously – and performing as much as we can.

At this time we are looking for approximately 3-6 additional voices to fill things out. We are open to considering all options, and will be auditioning all parts – bonus points for vocal percussionists and/or arrangers. If you meet any to all of the following criteria, we will be so excited to hear from you:

– You are a solid singer who loves to sing
– You have a good ear for harmony
– You have a good sense of rhythm
– You learn music quickly
– You have past experience with an a cappella group
– You have the ability to blend with other voices and hold your own part
– You like to sing solos and otherwise perform on stage
– You work well with a group
– You are directable, yet also willing to contribute
– You like being a part of building things from the ground up
– You are fun, easy-going, and accountable
– You already suspect we just might be your people

Our first round of auditions will be held on Thursday, March 3rd in midtown Manhattan. Please reply ASAP for more information and to schedule an audition. If you have a calendar conflict with this audition date (or read this post after the fact), other options may be available, so definitely get in touch.
