The A Cappella comunity is one of the best communities I can think of. Our shared passion brings people from around the globe into near instant friendships. Yesterday, it was announced that Boston vocal rock band Ball In The House would be cancelling Saturday’s scheduled show (two days later) because of a sudden and sad death in the family of one of the members.
One day later, it has been announced that Boston’s other outstanding vocal rock band, Five O’clock Shadow, would be stepping up to the plate and covering the gig for them.
That’s just one of the nicest, coolest things I’ve heard in a while. I’m sad to hear of the death, and I’m sad for those attendees who were looking forward to seeing BitH, but at least they’re still getting a rocking show with FOCS.
I love this community.
