My wife and I are big fans of NBC’s A cappella singing competition show, The Sing-Off. When I saw that season 2 winners Committed had booked a show in our area, even though I was broke, I bought tickets and put them on my credit card. Luckily the tickets were only $20 each after Ticketmaster’s infamous service charges.
Last night we dropped our son off with my parents’ and had a rare night out alone. We arrived at the Showcase Live club (in the Patriot Place complex) 2 hours early and were the second couple in line. When the doors opened at 6pm, we shared the front middle table with another couple who turned out to be nice people and Seventh Day Adventists (as Committed are).
The guys in Committed were humble, warm, and fun. Vocally, they were as tight as you remember from the best parts of their performances from the TV show–barely a bad note to be heard from any of the six of them all night. They performed their original Christian songs as well as covers from Take 6, Boyz II Men, Usher, and Leonard Skynard.
After the show, they were available at their merchandise table to greet fans and sign photos. T-shirts were also on sale.
If you’re an A cappella music fan, I hope you had a chance to see Committed. I think their tour wraps up tonight in New York.
In related news, The Sing-Off season 1 winners NOTA are playing in Boston with the Dear Abbys at Boston University July 17. It should be great!
Here are some photos that Misha and I snapped on our phones last night:
