PENTATONIX PERFORMS ON FEB. 11 AT THE RIVERSIDE IN MILWAUKEE
The 2011 winners of NBC’s talent show The Sing-Off, a cappella group Pentatonix, featuring out founding member Mitch Grassi, returns with PTX Vol. II. The disc includes three Pentatonix originals, including “Natural Disaster,” “Run To You” and “Love Again” (which has club hit written all over it). As with the group’s previous EP, Pentatonix exhibits great taste when it comes to cover material, including Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Can’t Hold Us,” Jessie Ware and Sampha’s “Valentine” and Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding’s “Need Your Love.” They save the best for last with a delirious Daft Punk medley, which incorporates seven of the Grammy-winning electronic dance duo’s tunes, ranging from early (“One More Time”) to late (“Get Lucky”).
