Back to Pentatonix

Music / October 3, 2014

It’s always heartening to see a band that you’ve believed it make it to the Big Time. It wasn’t a sure thing for Pentatonix, a unique a cappella band. Yes, you read that right. They tackle everything from rap to pop, to classical and back again. Guaranteed that you haven’t heard Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” performed in the Penatonix style.

After winning season three of NBC’s’The Sing Off’, and blowing up on YouTube with their take on popular covers, like Lorde’s “Royals,” the band went on to sell out every date on their current two-month tour and it was just announced that their new EP, PTX Vol. III, debuts at #5 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart and #3 on Billboard’s Digital Albums Chart.

The new music features a mix of global pop and indie hits with original songs including their latest music video for “Papaoutai” in a collaboration with Lindsey Stirling. Remember Imagine Dragons’ “Radioactive,” ( more than 90 million YouTube Views) ? It’s that good.

Pentatonix is comprised of lead vocalists Scott Hoying, Kirstie Maldonado, and Mitch Grassi, vocal bass Avi Kaplan and beatboxer Kevin “K.O.” Olusola.

To get an idea of the band’s style and range, just check out their YouTube channel. You’ll be glad you did.
