So many projects in line to tip off the new year.  We are in the middle of recording our HOT new EP (we’ll be taking the rest of December to finish this) and are taking requests for the last song on our album.

Let CALLE SOL know what song YOU think we should do for our album!

Remember to think “spicy” and “rhythmic.”  Something too simple won’t allow the gals to shake their thangs!! Please let us know on whatever social media platform of ours you wish.

The group has had special appearances on every major radio and TV station in Puerto Rico and already have them all fighting for an exclusive as soon as the first single comes out. We will be giving out hints as to what songs we’ve picked already for the EP.

We’ve got to have a hot video to go along with the new single, RIGHT?!! This is all coming IN THE NEW YEAR! New show dates in the continental U.S. coming soon… Stay posted for show dates in P.R. for all of our islanders.

The band is OVERWHELMED with gratitude and emotion from all the positive comments and love on all of our social media!! We are so proud of the job we did and are glad that although we didn’t make it far, we were able to turn some heads and give the world a good show! We will continue to work hard and will send the love right back to those who share with us.

AcaDirt: #SingOff Episode 3 (The Proposal)

By Jeremy Michael Lewis, acoUstiKat

Half the groups, but twice the tears!

Before I get started, I’d like to congratulate all four-and-a-half million of you who were able to figure out the answer to the the burning question:

“Wait, when is The Sing-Off on again?”

In an attempt to answer numerous questions regarding why the format was changed for episodes 3 and 4, I did a little mind reading and came up with the following:

  1. It makes the competition a little stiffer. Think about it: half of the groups on the episode had to battle, which makes for good entertainment.
  2. Two-hour episodes are long… This is ‘Murica, ain’t nobody got time for that three nights a week.
  3. Mark Burnett said so.

To the music:

If you didn’t notice, the show opened with the first ballad of the season, Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes.”  I had never heard it to be perfectly honest, and I still can’t stand the original to this day, so kudos to us for making that bearable.

I personally remember this as the first time that we as performers came together as an individual ensemble, not just different groups singing on stage together.  Now I won’t say that I didn’t enjoy doing the whole flock of different soloists from each group stepping out to show just how many riffs can embellish a melody!  I just needed a little vanilla in my life. (Albeit,  we still riffed a bit too.)

The theme for the episode was ingeniously labeled #1 Hits.  Now, I’m not saying I don’t like singing popular songs, but I try and stray from the most popular songs of all time when I select music.  Why you ask?  Because chances are, if it was a #1 song on the charts, it’s hard to make it any better than it was in the first place.

Take our pals Pentatonix for instance. The majority of songs they choose to cover are close to being on “top of the chart” but not quite there. Maybe you haven’t noticed, but I’m pretty sure most of their YouTube videos hit a million views before they finish fully uploading, so it’s safe to say they’re doing something right.

I’ll give you an extremely brief description on my personal feelings of each group’s number, and then we’ll move on to things I actually have real concrete information about.

TEN:  You’re insane, I don’t know how you do it, just keep doing it.

Street Corner Renaissance:  You have more class and swagger than I knew was possible. The ‘Kats learned a ton from you and Cee-Lo could even take some notes.

Filharmonic:  VJ is still perfect.

All right, our turn:

Last seen, we were up for a cappella execution, and none of us really wanted to go back to college on time, so we figured we might start putting in a little extra effort this time around. This episode was obviously approached a little differently by the ‘Kats. We went back to our roots and decided to show what we do best: choral music.

For the ladies who are in love with Ross Hill’s voice, he’s had the same girlfriend for about half his life, so I wouldn’t get your hopes up.  However, window-shopping is still legal in Kentucky, so don’t be completely discouraged.

For those of you who might have gone to the bathroom or fell sleep or didn’t watch the episode completely, you might not have noticed that part about Mike getting down on one knee in front of America.

As precious and emotional as that particular moment was, there was some serious planning that had to go into that very special moment and a lot of back story you might not have caught, so here goes my personal recapitulation.

Mike Owens wanted to ask his girlfriend, Maggie Blair (or Margaret Augusta Blair because that’s how a gentleman says it) to marry him for months prior to this moment. When he found out we had made the show however, he got the idea that maybe he should wait for just the right moment.

Side note:  Maggie and Mike met while she was in charge of the female a cappella group at UK Paws and Listen.  (Yeah, I know, we’re really good with the puns in Kentucky.)

When the group decided we were going ahead with “Amazed,” the first ballad/love song an individual group had performed this season, Mike brought up the idea to the group, and I don’t think I have to tell you just how excited to we were to have a bachelor party help out!

But here’s the thing: this is television.  You don’t just get to insert proposals because it’s a cute idea.  Mike didn’t officially have clearance to pop the question until two days before the recording.  I haven’t crossed the “I’m going to ask my girlfriend to marry me” bridge in my life yet, but I’m assuming it’s not exactly a casual decision.  And moreover, I’m sure the “this may or may not even happen” thing didn’t help.

Not to mention the following obstacles:

  1. He didn’t have the ring in L.A.
  2. He didn’t have any actual confirmation she could even make it to L.A. for the show.
  3. The ‘Kats fumbled through 5 completely different arrangements and almost had to change the song because fitting a ballad into a minute and 40 seconds, is not easy.

That being said, we figured it out. (You’re welcome, big fella.)

So while normal rehearsal days were in full force, I went with Mike to the nearest Tiffany & Co. in Santa Monica (yes, Mike is actually perfect), where he bought the ring he had already picked out months before.

THE RING

I’d love to say the sole reason I went with him was to support him in one of the biggest moments of his life, but honestly, I was really sick of rehearsing, needed a haircut, and hadn’t been to the beach yet… so I killed a few birds with this stone. (See what I did there?)

Santa Monica
Mike and I at Santa Monica Beach

Fast forward:

Mike approached me in one of the rehearsals before the performance and asked me if I wouldn’t mind learning the bass line for the last section, just in case he got caught up in the moment and couldn’t sing the last few notes. (Crying and singing bass is actually impossible — try it sometime.)

The day of performance we could all tell he was nervous, and if you know Mike at all… you would be nervous for him, too.  Fully grown red-headed basses aren’t exactly known for an abundance of swagger.

However, right after we finished our warm-up routine of running around acting like complete idiots backstage, he came up to me and looked me dead in the eye and said, “Hey man, don’t worry about singing my part at the end.  I’ve got this.”  And he was right.

As far as I’m concerned the song and proposal were emotionally beautiful, and there
isn’t a single thing I would change.

Since the entire show is prerecorded, and we couldn’t talk about any details, Mike and Maggie have since been hiding the engagement from all of their friends until the episode aired.  So, you can imagine, Thursday was quite the surprise for many people.

If you haven’t already found your way to iTunes to buy the music from the show, please do so now! Needless to say, after Sony, NBC, publishers and iTunes take their cut and hand us the last 24 cents or so to split 12 ways, we’re all well on our way to paying off that college debt.  Seriously though… we appreciate the support, and we wouldn’t be here without you all, so thanks for buying.

As always, it’s a pleasure to let you all in what goes on behind every performance. I’ll be sitting in the box on Monday, but I promise you DO NOT want to miss this throw down.

Love Y’all

AcaDirt: #SingOff Episode 2

By Jeremy Michael Lewis, acoUstiKat

Well, we’re still here.

I was going to give you more opinions on how I felt the show went last night, but instead, lets make this a little more educational. (Please, contain your excitement.)

For those of you who believe that every group that makes it to The Sing-Off stage is a walking replica of Pitch Perfect, I’m incredibly sorry to spoil your dreams; we’re not.  This show is not all “skittles and beer.” It takes some serious work.  Let me break this thing down for you.

The show took about two months to tape, start to finish. Since commercials consume what seems to be like 95% of the show anyway, I will generously estimate that 8-9 hours of The Sing-Off are actually piped onto your screen.  Do that math by yourself, because I’m certainly not going to.  If you came up with the acoUstiKats sitting around in the hot tub waiting for the next episode to record just chatting about sorority girls… you’re only half correct.

I won’t spoil all the magic of the show because I legally can’t, and the last thing I need is to be sued for all $25 to my name.  However, the magic would mean nothing without two necessary working parts that go into building this show: raw talent and hard work.

Starting with the openers:

The scores for these things are intense, and they don’t just come together overnight.  The variables that go into having multiple groups (take the second opener, for instance, with nine), with a crockpot of learning styles and techniques, come together to establish a performance that blends, tunes, and also is entertaining? It isn’t exactly a walk in the park.

My personal background learning music started when I was a child; I played piano.  I learned how to read music, and didn’t bother learning by ear until I was forced to in college because… I didn’t have to.  Other individuals on the show couldn’t tell you where a middle C is on staff paper, but if you sang a part to them once, they’d already have it memorized.  That’s partially what makes the group numbers so interesting to watch as a finished product.

Between 3-4 hours per day (yeah, that didn’t get boring) were devoted to just blocking, learning, and running opener choreography until it looked great from every camera angle to reach the finished product you see on TV.

Side note: Darian Mackey literally sang that opening riff perfectly every time… if anyone was wondering, she doesn’t make mistakes.

All right, let’s chat individual numbers:

I think it’s safe to say the acoUstiKats aren’t exactly pee-shy when it comes to performing.  We have a scrupulous policy that basically mandates that we don’t perform something we aren’t 100% committed to (“Hey Ya” was our second song choice for Episode Two after we royally flopped on figuring out how to perform the first choice).

For those of you who live under a rock and only read blogs and don’t watch the show, we were sent to the battle last night after our performance of “Hey Ya.”  I could critique the performance from a technical aspect all day, but you get on stage with 12 guys and sing Outkast (a cappella) full-speed ahead and let me know how it goes for you.  Regardless of how the judges liked it, we threw down our personality, and if you liked it, welcome aboard the acoUstiBus, you’re in for quite the ride.

[Editor’s whine note: But Evan promised us the acoUstiPuns were almost over.}

What goes into an arrangement, you ask?

Perfect question.  I’ll tell you.

Our arranger, Nick Johnson, says it takes him anywhere from 2 hours to 2 weeks to arrange a tune.  Obviously on The Sing-Off, the latter doesn’t cut it.  So when you don’t get a chance to start arranging for the next episode’s performance (since you never know if you’ll be there or not), there is really only one option: don’t sleep.

If you have specific questions on how Nick personally arranges, hit him up on Twitter. He’s a pretty personable guy @ndjohnsonn.  He also arranges for all sorts of high school and college groups so in the country, so… (Make the check out to Jeremy Lewis, Nick.)

But I digress.

We rehearsed our individual number anywhere from 4-8 hours per day depending upon how comfortable we were with the progress.  The ‘Kats learn the basics of the song so we can sing through it top to bottom, which usually takes about an hour depending upon how uncooperative we are that day.  Then we record it so we can have a basis for what we want to do for choreography, and go eat or something.

The best rehearsals are always followed by sleep, and if you can get to bed after you’ve put a few good hours in on something, for some scientific reason I won’t pretend to understand, you’ll wake up knowing the piece better than you did before you fell asleep.  (We never actually followed that logic and usually ran to the hot tub or bar after our rehearsals, but since I’m trying to instill good habits, I figured I’d appease some choral teachers out there.)

After we learn the basics of a new tune, we block and learn the condensed steps for our number, and rehearsals slowly start becoming less static until every time we rehearse the song, we’re dancing.  (Or in our case, twerking.)

I’ve waited to the end to talk about my absolute favorite of the preparation  (a disgusting amount of sarcasm):

The “Ultimate Sing-Off”

You might think a group of high-energy performers like the ‘Kats would love the intensity of having a battle to “save” us to the next round.  No, in fact, we hated every part about them.

I’ll be honest with you when I say that I knew roughly 75% of my notes in our performance of “Stronger” against Calle Sol.  You know why?  Not in a cocky, “we don’t need to know it” way, but because we barely rehearsed it.  We’re just 12 college guys and get lazy sometimes all right?  Love us for who we are.

I watched cult favorite Pitch Perfect about a year after it came out with two of my best friends Nick Johnson and Jordan Lindsey, and the only thing I found more amusing than the feminism jokes was the “group battle” section.  It’s an awesome idea… I think it is a platform of entertainment excellence, and bravo to whoever came up with it.  They’re intense, fun, and people like watching emotions flair.

That being said, if I actually disliked someone, I promise you the last thing that would come to mind is rounding up the boys for a jolly ol’ rendition of Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger” to belt in my enemy’s direction.

I’ll set the mood for you after we caught wind that’d we’d be up next in the little Kelly Clarkson throw down:

The moment I walked backstage and the cameras turned off (and I do mean a single moment because they never got those stupid things out of my face), Deke Sharon, music producer of the show, gathered us together to talk through who was going to sing what sections.

The first thing the ‘Kats did wasn’t stare them down, or listen intently and start strategizing our attack plan… we all hugged the other group.  Not in a “oh, it’s okay, we’re all winners in our moms’ eyes” way, but in a… “I hate this because regardless of the outcome, this is the last time we get to make music together with our friends, and someone goes home” way.  Much love to our friends Calle Sol.  Your talent is only matched by your genuine personalities.

Enough sap… We’re still on the show.

Groups are starting to show their identities and comfort zones, so now the question is… Who is going to throw the first curveball?

When I say you DO NOT want to miss tonight (Episode 3), I mean it. 

I don’t want to give anything away, but I can safely say tonight’s episode carries a huge emotional impact on everyone in the ‘Kats lives. The night of the performance was incredibly influential on my own life, and I hope y’all enjoy it.

I loved all your tweets from last episode — keep them comin’!

AcaDirt: #SingOff Episode 1

By Jeremy Michael Lewis, acoUstiKat

*SPOILER ALERT*

Tell you something good? I’ve got “bass in my butt” and took a personal acoUstiShower after that episode. 

First on the docket, can we talk about the talent on this season?

Not to brag on my season (no wait, completely bragging), but if the Princeton Footnotes were the lowest mark on our totem pole, we’ve got quite the season to look forward to.  Adam Hyndman and Josh Lavine carried a talented crew to an impressive appearance that is undoubtedly helping the Footnotes stay booked for the foreseeable future over on the East Coast.

Since we’re on the topic of talent, and I’m writing the blog, here are a few opinions on what I loved watching last night.  Starting at the top: Vocal Rush.

You know what was wrong with Vocal Rush last night?  NOTHING.

Does everyone understand the average age in that group is like 17 years old or something…? I’m trying to remember what I was doing at 17, and the only things I can recall would assuredly give my mother heart palpitations, so just use your imagination.

Jordan Holly is going to be a star, so if you haven’t become her fan by now, do it before she’s too famous to pretend like she cares if you follow her. I don’t remember the comments about them from the judges, because I didn’t care, something about rushing… I stopped listening when Kyana Fanene (VP) served face for the world.  I knew they weren’t going anywhere.

Shout out to all the moms who raised this group of young stars:  YOU DID WELL.

Let’s chat briefly about this whole phenomenon accurately titled “Bass in My Butt.”

Be as it may, I used to sing low bass before I had a double tonsil/adenoidectomy a few years ago and my range shot up a fifth overnight. (Also the worst 2 weeks of my life; I’ll choose death if they grow back.)

Tim Foust.

If anyone out there is wondering, Tim is not a bass. Tim is also not a baritone or a tenor. Tim is a gift from God himself to bless the world with his own category. Let it be known: Mr. Foust can drop bombs that will blow any cannon out of the water, and he looks great doing it too. The only thing more sizable than Tim’s talent is the humility in his response to Jewel’s inquiry.

Speaking of things that God has sent from above this season: TEN.

The Kats’ best friends from the show by far were these 10 soulful musicians. Let me point out something that personally wasn’t articulated quite enough on the show last night: That was their first performance together folks. WHET?! Do y’all understand how hard a cappella is? You should, it sucks. Honestly I’ve hung out with these swangers for quite sometime now and Ben Folds nailed it, if I could sing like that, you would NEVER shut me up (Stop, I heard that.).  Chelsea “Peaches” West and Deonis Cook have put together something that will undoubtedly go down in history as a musical breakthrough.

So now that I’ve chatted about a few of the the first nine opening acts, (I’m only serious people) The acoUstiKats:

If anyone is planning on waking me up from this dream I’m currently living, don’t.

If you didn’t catch their names, Ron Wilbur (@itsaRONsworth) and Ross Hill (@rosschill) put their stamp on what is the beginning of the newest legacy in Sing-Off history. No collegiate crew has taken the gold home before on this stage, but I promise you, we didn’t come to Los Angeles for second place. If you haven’t had the chance to catch up on your Kentucky history by now, we’re good at hanging banners, why stop with basketball?

On a more humble and realistic note, however, that minute and a half helped form a bond with eleven other guys that I will never forget. If we had gone home last night, we would have been completely satisfied and fulfilled because we went on the stage and did exactly what the acoUstiKats have always been known for: Bringing the party to you.

A few quick shout-outs to some people who, if you get a chance in the next day to YouTube and enjoy their background careers: Honey Larochelle, VJ Rosales, and Craig (Range) Cacciola. I would talk about their individual groups, but no one likes to read novels and — I promise you — they’ll get their moments on Wednesday night!

Thanks for reading and, as always, let me know if you have any particular questions, and I will make sure and include them in the next addition after Episode 2!

Oh… and I’m on lead next episode — want a preview? 😉

Love Y’all
