SNC actually had an opening act this time, Caroline Glaser. She was on Season 4 of The Voice apparently, and she has a great soulful voice. Kind of a younger Nora Jones thing going on. It's been a while since I've heard such a good voice live that didn't sound overproduced. I'm interested in seeing if she makes it big.
SNC had a great show. They had some old favorites for sure, but I loved the new mash-ups like Blurred Lines. They are hilarious and talented and entertaining... even if you *think* you're too cool for the awesome sound of a cappella.
Our only complaint? We wish the 2nd set was longer (of course) and that we got more Christmas music. Though in retrospect, last year's concert was in December... so maybe that's why we got so much Christmas stuff vs. this year.
They always take some photos of the crowd... can you spot my dorkiness waving amidst the middle-agers? Ha! Where's
The show was amazing as expected. I just can't understand how they can make such awesome music with just their voices. A cappella takes such a good ear, talent, and more... you gotta give them props, people. It's better than Pitch Perfect.
P.S. I am super proud SNC started in my hometown of Bloomington, Indiana! I always yell a "Go Hoosiers!" during the show at some point. Because I'm an uber nerd.
P.P.S. Pentatonix (of The Sing-Off!) are coming to the Ryman in March and we already have our tickets!
