Four Men. No Instruments. Start with a playlist that covers jazz, popular music, doo-wop, even classical. Add in four guys who can’t help but have fun. The result is a show that has something for everyone: instrumental imitation, sophisticated harmonies, and engaging audience interaction. This winning formula has earned CADENCE international recognition as “one of the finest quartets to make an appearance in the a cappella scene”. In the journey from four-guys-in-the-living-room to international touring band, CADENCE has performed for many of the greatest names in vocal music including Quincy Jones and Manhattan transfer. CADENCE has also had the honour of singing with vocal maestro Bobby McFerrin in 2003 at the Montreal Jazz Festival, and in 2005 at Roy Thomson Hall. CADENCE has performed across the world, with delighted audiences across North America, Asia, and Europe. Wherever they go, CADENCE delivers its mandate: to explore and demonstrate that the voice has no limits. Close your eyes: you’ll never believe you’re hearing only voices. Open your eyes: enjoy the show! The Albums “Elegant, energetic and inventive, Cadence’s latest release, frost free, catapults the Canadian quartet into the ranks of the must-own” — Jonathan Minkoff, Recorded A Cappella Review Board The debut album that put Cadence on the map, frost free is a collection of popular and lesser-known songs representing different musical styles, and mirrors the band’s approach to live performance. frost free was nominated for a Juno award in 2001, and won several prestigious a cappella music awards. Twenty For One (2005) “Tremendous…. Great arrangements and delivery, very inventive ideas: a nice new twist in a cappella singing. Bravo!” — Peter Eldridge, New York Voices Continuing the tradition of redefining the “vocal band”, Twenty For One is a balance of hip jazz, cool pop, and clever and thoughtful original songs.
