Doors 5:30 for 6pm concert, $18 Adults $8 Kids (12 & under)
NY Academy of Medicine — 1216 5th Ave (104th St)
A benefit for a great public school in East Harlem attended by Sean's daughter and Elliott's son! XRP (Rockapella 1989-91) is ex-Rockapella members Sean Altman, Barry Carl, Elliott Kerman and Steve Keyes. Like the Iron Giant, reassembling itself out of its far-flung pieces by sheer will power, XRP comes together again to make the a cappella magic that lit up the screen when the now-famous "Spike Lee & Co. Do It A Cappella" documentary was debuted on PBS-TV in 1990. Before there was Carmen Sandiego, these four men, the classic members of Rockapella — Sean Altman, Steve Keyes, Elliott Kerman and Barry Carl — were putting their indelible stamp on vocal harmony and inspiring a wave of enthusiasm for a cappella that would sweep the globe. Now they're back together as XRP for a once (or maybe every few years when they forget that they've already reunited) in a lifetime event, making the music that made them famous as America's premier vocal band. With guest vocal percussionist Ed Chung of Duwende.
Hope to see you there and Happy New Year!
