News from Rockapella:-

"Did it, Rockapella" - Elliott Kerman

"After 18 1/2 fantastic years, I have decided to hang up my pitch pipe. My last show will be at BB Kings in New York City on July 31, 2004 (where we will be joined by most of the former Rockapella members). Rockapella has been such an integral part of my life for so long that it’s hard to imagine my future without it. I'll really miss the excitement of our live shows and the connection with the audience, I'll miss the great vocal harmonies and the camaraderie both on and off stage, and I'll miss hanging out with our amazing fans after the shows. I've been extremely conflicted about leaving the group; I feel sad about the prospect of not having Rockapella in my life, but I'm also looking forward to spending more time at home with my family in NYC and beginning new life adventures: working with my wife, Debbie, on her burgeoning art career and putting together the Elliott Kerman Quartet. I've been dreaming about singing jazz for a very long time; jazz tunes and standards are what make my clock tick, and it feels like this is the right time to embrace my dream (I swear this isn't a mid-life crisis). P.S. For those of you who want to stay in touch, my very new website is www.elliottkerman.com

Elliott, we will miss you.

The next new Rockapella is John K. Brown who's first concert with them will be Bartlett, TN on August 28. Learn more about John here.
