For the last 30 years, North Shore Acappella has entertained and excited thousands of listeners throughout the Boston area, adding an experienced blend of harmony, rhythm and tempo to songs from the 40's right up through today. The voices belong to Tommy Duarte, Paul Lopes, Jimmy Martin, Vinny Straccia, and Guy Chiapponi.
This special art of delivering music without instrumental accompaniment is what North Shore Acappella is all about. The award-winning group offers a continuously fresh repertoire of hundreds of popular hits that cover the last five decades. Each number and performance is arranged in a way that showcases each member in a role of lead singer – a trait that very few acappella groups in the country can claim.
North Shore Acappella has appeared as the opening act for The Temptations, The Platters, Ben E. King, Johnny Maestro, Al Jarreau, Roberta Flack, Frankie Vallie, and Gene Pitney. In 1991 North Shore Acappella won The National Harmony Sweepstakes in San Rafael, California, defeating six other top finalists from across the country.
North Shore Acappella's commercial advertising experience ranges from radio and television voice-overs for T.J. Maxx to a variety of corporate public relations assignments, including the New York Stock Exchange. North Shore Acappella has led entertainment efforts for major fund raising events, including the American Red Cross Mass Bay Chapter Food Relief Campaign, Massachusetts Special Olympics, and the Crispus Attucks Children’s Center.
North Shore Acappella appears regularly at clubs and theaters around New England and is available for commercial advertising and promotion engagements.
