Back to Pentatonix Pentatonix - Electric Factory - Philadelphia, PA - March 30, 2014

This past Sunday night the Electric Factory had a full house to see the up and coming a capella group, Pentatonix, winners of season three of the reality singing competition The Sing-Off. When going to this show I really didn't know what to expect, but as soon as they hit the stage the energy from the five vocalists – as well as the fans – was spectacular.

The group did a series of covers that ranged from Daft Punk's hit single "Get Lucky" to the new wave classic "Video Killed the Radio Star" by The Buggles. Though covers at times can be rather dull, the group was able to twist the songs in very unique ways to make even the toughest critic want to get up and dance.

Not only were their covers phenomenal, but the artists got to showcase their specific talents: one being Kevin (K.O.) Olusola beat-boxing and playing the cello simultaneously. Needless to say it was extremely impressive. If you were to drop a pin on the floor the whole venue would have been able to hear it because they were so enthralled from this performer's amazing talent.

Although I thought this show couldn't have gotten any better, to my amazement, as the performances continued the charisma and enthusiasm of the five performers on stage led into an amazing crescendo at the end of the show to the audience's delight.

This show was one to remember and was probably one of the most energetic, fun concerts I have ever been to. So the next time Pentatonix are in Philadelphia, I would mark it on your calendars because this vocal group is going to be one to watch.
