A Cappella standard bearers highlight the holiday December 10 at the Tower.
The most awarded vocal group in history (10 Grammy Awards, 10 Dove Awards and a Soul Train Award) brings their holiday cheer to Central Oregon on Tuesday, December 10 at 7:30pm. The Tower Theatre Foundation welcomes Take 6, singing classic holiday songs from their Christmas CD The Most Wonderful Time of the Year, plus original tunes for the Christmas season.
Claude McKnight, Mark Kibble, Joel Kibble, Dave Thomas, Alvin Chea and Khristian Dentley, heralded by Quincy Jones as the “baddest vocal cats on the planet!” form the quintessential a cappella group. Six virtuosic voices united in crystal clear harmony, against a backdrop of syncopated rhythms, innovative arrangements, and grooves that bubble into an intoxicating brew of gospel, jazz, R&B and pop.
Of the group that knows no musical bounds, McKnight says, “Take 6 is pretty much a play on the Take 5 jazz standard. And the fact that there are six of us in the group!” Their self-titled debut CD won over jazz and pop critics, scored two 1988 Grammy Awards, and landed in the Top Ten Billboard Contemporary Jazz and Contemporary Christian Charts. And they’ve never looked back.
