Rockapella to Perform at Kean's Wilkins Theatre

UNION, N.J. – – The hippest and hottest a cappella group to hit the airwaves, Rockapella, will grace the Wilkins Theatre stage on Friday, April 16, at 7:30 p.m., Kean University, 1000 Morris Avenue, Union, N.J.

This five-man group based in New York City is credited with revolutionizing a capella music and bringing it into the 21st century as an infectious pop-music form blending soul, rock, r&b and jazz. Rockapella first gained national attention in the early ’90s for their five seasons of work on the award-winning PBS program, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? They created and sang the original music for the show’s theme song and elements, as well as provided some witty on-camera comic relief. Since that time, Rockapella has released nine albums, appeared in numerous television shows and commercials and performed to sold-out audiences worldwide.

Tickets are $20 for the public; $15 for seniors and alumni; and $12 for students and children. Black-and-white and color photographs are available upon request. For further information, to order tickets, or request a brochure, call the Wilkins Theatre Box Office at 908-737-SHOW (7469).
