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.
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.
Fit for all ages, VoicePlay’s recordings and concerts are an impossible to miss hit which have to be heard to be believed.
In little under 1 year, Freedom’s Boombox rose from internet sensation to international touring trio. The band started as a collaborative music startup. Then the band gained traction with +1M views on their all-vocal music. Freedom’s Boombox social presence has grown over 1000% in 6 months accompanying their first album release in July 2017.
The US State Department selected Freedom’s Boombox as cultural ambassadors. They have planned tours in Europe, Australia, and the US for 2017.
After singing for over a decade, Alfredo, Christopher, and Richard have become paragons of America’s a cappella culture. After The SingOff in 2011, they joined forces to form The Exchange with 2 friends Aaron and Jamal from the show. They traveled to 50 countries across every continent (except Antarctica), teaching along the way. After the group dissolved, the 3 stayed together to continue pushing their own boundaries in a cappella.
With a little beatboxing, a missing vocal cord, radio hits, some classical vocal training, and 3 microphones, you’ll spend the first few songs trying to figure out who is doing what to bring pop music to life. With just 3 voices, Freedom’s Boombox is built with minimal size and maximum sound; meet the new American vocal pop trio.
Freedom’s Boombox orchestrates an entire concert with just 3 voices. They’ve battled through reality TV, viral videos, and world tours. Then Freedom’s Boombox sat in front of a camera and started singing their version of pop songs. Now, their shows use radio hits and a cappella to reach new crowds worldwide.
