For many of us, a cappella singing went out with the high school choir. Few groups perform without the support of back-up instruments anymore. Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry, Be Happy" gave a cappella music a new high profile, however.
And now a trio of young women are coming to town who are proving that a cappella music isn't passe at all, it's Pastiche.The trio's album, "Remember That," has been doing remarkably well.
Now Pastiche is coming to Salt Lake City to test the market and interest level here.
On April 7 and 8, Pastiche will be performing at Nino's Cabaret on South Temple.
There will be two shows a night. The 7 p.m. show is a dinner show and tickets are $32. The 10 p.m. show is $16.
For information call Nino's at 359-0501.
Originally the trio was a quartet that performed in Bay Area jazz clubs. The decision to go a cappella came quite by accident in 1985 when the trio was forced to vocalize on the radio without the help of a band. It sounded so good, they stayed with it.
