AcaGeekz 031 – “NaNoWriMo’”

AcaGeekz is now available on iTunes and Stitcher!  If you like what you hear, please write a review and help support the show!

Welcome!  It’s my hope that AcaGeekz will introduce the casual listener and the hardcore a cappella fan alike to some groups and styles they’ve never heard before.  Whether it be Barbershop, collegiate, doo wop, high school, choral, jazz, funk, pop, rock, or classical, there’s something for everyone!

This episode is to celebrate National Novel Writing Month.  In November, countless people try to write a 50,000 word novel in just 30 days.  To help inspire the aspiring writer, this half episode has a little fun with songs about words, writing, and books.

Visit www.nanowrimo.org to join the event!  You can utilize the resources on this site year-round!

If you are interested in writing, I highly recommend a podcast called Writing Excuses:Fifteen minutes long because you’re in a hurry, and we’re not that smart.  It features Brandon Sanderson, Dan Wells, Mary Robinette Kowal, and Howard Tayler.  Season 10 is a great jumping in point as throughout the season, they walk you through crafting a story from idea generation to submitting to Editors and Agents!

It’s time to give the tracks for this episode their due credit.  So here they are, the tracks for AcaGeekz “NaNoWriMo”!

Blindside is looking for high tenors, low basses and Mezzos!

Blindside is a small a cappella group, looking to fill out our lineup.  Founded by blind individuals, Blindside has a big passion for helping others and would love to include more visually impaired members, but the bottom line is, we’re looking for fun, funny, talented people with a desire to make great music together!  We focus on contemporary rock/pop covers, but we're not going to shy away from the right classics or comedy tunes, as long as they form part of a cohesive set.  Depending on the gig, we'll  pepper our shows with originals as well.

What we’re looking for:              

*A talented high tenor  - we'll know the right fit when we hear it.  Strong solo chops need to be balanced against the ability to pull back into the chord and harmonize with the whole.              

*A resonant low bass (Beatbox skills are valuable, but not essential) – This person needs to have at least a strong low D or lower.  Blend is important, but also the ability to adapt to a wide variety of styles.  A strong solo voice is also needed.

*A solid mezzo singer.  The range isn’t as important as the ability to blend with the boys as well as rock out solos like a boss!

While not essential, arranging ability, basic music theory and previous a cappella experience are definite pluses.  Most important is attitude.  We’re looking for members who have a strong work ethic and are passionate about their craft, but who enjoy singing on street corners or in restaurants for no other reason than it's fun.

Time commitment:  Blindside rehearses twice a week for two hours each, or once a week for three hours.  Additional or alternate rehearsals can arise before performances based on availability.  Must be flexible for gigging since that will be a focus of the group.  Pay will only come from paid performances.

Interested?  Contact us with the following:  

* Basic info about yourself and experience

* Photo  

* Audio or video sample of you singing.

Audition and callback day/time: Auditions will be held in 15 minute slots over two days in late February.  We will contact you to schedule a time.  Additional days may come up so please inquire.

Location: Los Angeles

 Contact: acageekz@gmail.com

We look forward to hearing from you!

 

A Cappella Charity Event!

I'm reaching out to you about a very special performance being put together in the Carolinas on the 21st of  June, 2017!  Many years ago, Gov. Hodges declared June 21 to be O.C. Smith Day.  In case you don’t recognize that name, O.C. Smith was a Grammy-winning soul and R&B singer who was best known for the song, “Little Green Apples.”  He had a reputation for integrity and doing good for others as well as being a well-loved artist within the music industry.

Robert F. Smith is the blind son of the late O.C. Smith and has followed in his father’s footsteps in not only his love for music and performing, but also his enormous heart.  He started a non-for-profit organization called The Little Green Apples Project to inspire a million intentional acts of kindness.  Right now, he’s on a quest to help a 7-year-old boy named Tyler.  Tyler has autism and diabetes.  He is low-functioning and completely non-verbal and unable to tell his parents when his blood sugar drops, which can cause life-threatening seizures.  They have to monitor him 24/7 and it has cost them jobs as well as a home.  Robert is trying to raise $17,000 to get Tyler a specially trained service dog that can sense when Tyler is in danger and alert his parents.  Not only could this save Tyler’s life, but it could allow his parents to put their lives on track, secure in their son’s well-being.

That’s where this performance comes in.  Robert has been pursuing his dream of singing the National Anthem and throwing out the first pitch at every Major and Minor League stadium in the country and is doing a whirlwind tour in North and South Carolina throughout June.  He’ll be fundraising and creating tournaments with his Toss To Target Game Towel. 

But June 21st, his father’s birthday, is the crowning jewel.  We are hoping to honor both Robert and his late father and all the good works they’ve done with an all-a cappella event.  We hope this event will put us over the top and finally raise the money for Tyler – after all, what better way to pay homage to Robert’s father?

This is how you can get involved!

-We are reaching out to groups in and around the Carolinas who are willing to donate their time and talent to support this worthy cause. -We ask that each group arrange an O.C. Smith song (which we will assign) to include in their set to honor Robert and his dad. -We ask that each group promotes the show through their individual contacts and social media networks.

We have a limited number of slots so please respond quickly if you want to get involved!  This is a onetime event and you don’t want to miss out!  We are looking to have the line-up locked down by March 1 to give us as much time as possible to promote the show!

If you want to be involved, send us the following to seanapella@gmail.com by Friday, February 17:

-A video of your group singing live. -Basic group info (i.e. Group’s name, the members names and their roles in the group) -A short, blurb about the group -A website or Facebook link (If applicable) -A repertoire list (If applicable) -E-mail and phone number of the group’s contact person.

We look forward to raising our voices with you to celebrate the life of O.C. Smith and to help give a life-saving gift to Tyler!  This is what a cappella is all about, joining together to create something beautiful for the sheer joy of it!

In harmony,

~Sean~
