Saturday Night Headliner

Based in Orlando, FL, VoicePlay performs their own incredible brand of entertainment across the country and around the world. What began quite literally as a street corner barbershop act has now evolved into an internationally acclaimed touring sensation and video entertainment brand.

VoicePlay is unlike any theatrical experience available today, recreating the orchestrated sound of an entire musical production with nothing but the the human voice.

The cast of VoicePlay has taken the timeless sound of vocal music and turned it completely on it’s head. Re-imagined as a full stage show, amazing, humorous, and vertigo-inducing harmonies pepper VoicePlay’s music-without-music sound as it ping-pongs between eras and styles, channeling the breadth of the musical landscape and lacing it with inventive and often hilarious on-stage theatrics.



Saturday Night Performers

transit is four singers, that’s it. Our only instruments are our natural born voices. Everything you hear from the stage and on our studio recordings begins with the human voice. Utilizing the latest technology we combine our vocal talents with stage and studio effects to bring our music to life and put on a show that those who have never seen a vocal band will hardly believe.

transit draws on the combined talents of 4 extraordinary individuals who have been a part of the vocal music scene for more than ten years. Their love for a cappella is second only to their love for music.

Duke Pitchforks

Friday Night Emcees

They have sung the national anthem at Chicago Bulls and Duke Basketball games, showcased themselves before the Queen of Jordan, and even opened for Ben Folds in 2009 and The Band Perry in 2015. In 2014 and 2018, the ‘Forks crossed the Atlantic to tour with some of Britain’s best collegiate singers. They also have a rich history of recording and have twice won the CARA Award for Best Male Collegiate A Cappella Album.
