Edlos

Edlos

Male Contemporary Quartet from Berkeley, CA.

1989 - Harmony Sweepstakes National Champions

The EDLOS, you might ask? Four guys who sing without instrumental accompaniment... A Cappella. What's with the name? The story they tell is that the name is an acronym for Excessive Decibel Levels from Outer Space and that they're refugees from the planet "A" which circles the star Capella in the constellation Auriga. The story goes on, but let's cut to reality here for a minute. These four classically trained guys; Eric, Larry, Ed, and Craig were destined to take their schooling, talent, and juicy voices into the 21st century, always breaking new ground in their never ending pursuit of A Cappella diversity and originality. Speaking of diversity, the EDLOS have three shows to offer. Their critically acclaimed Popourri Show, which consistently draws standing ovations, is made up of eclectic originals and familiar favorites.

But that's only where the fun begins. The Bad Boys of A Capella have a Country Western Show that's both contemporary and traditional, featuring hard-core country croonin' and world class yodeling. It's a guaranteed smiler! Come the holiday season the EDLOS deck the halls with a wide variety of harmoniously spirited songs, traditional and original, with their very special Holiday Show. Now when the EDLOS put on a show, it's not just standing on a stage and singing the tunes...oh no...there are lights, smoke, costumery, tomfoolery, wigs, and assorted mathem, that all combine to make an unforgetable performance. One last point. Humor. These guys have a strong sense of comedy. No. Let's rephrase that. They're a crackup. They can't help it. Of course they do get serious occasionally. Check 'em out!

Edlos : A Cappella Country : 00  1 CD

Edlos : A Cappella Country

The Edlos were visiting Nashville where they were tapped to play the Grand Old Opry. The wildly enthusiastic response they found was the root inspiration for a collection of country tunes. There is a sweet lilting poignancy found in heartstring tuggers like "For Ever and Ever, Amen," "Goodbye To White Deer" and "High Hill." Traditional tunes are present in "Your Cheatin' Heart" and "Faded Love." "Castin' My Lasso" is a vehicle for great yodeling, cowboys old and new, mine disasters, wired truck drivers... If its country its here.

Songlist: For Ever And Ever, Amen, Tupelo Honey, Goodbye To White Deer, Born To Yodel, Your Cheatin' Heart, High Hill, Big Bad John, Faded Love, The Cattle Call, Truck Drivin' Man, I Think It's Gonna Rain Today, Castin' My Lasso

Edlos : Broadway

First formed in 1989, The Bad Boys of A Cappella," known of r their lights, smoke, wigs, costumes and general silliness, have added another winner to their collection of live shows, which up to this point have included the Variety Show, Country Western Show, Holiday Show and Groovy 60s Show. "A Cappella Broadway" premiered in April 2007 as a triple groundbreaker: their first show entirely of songs not featured in any of their previous shows, the first time they've staged an extended run of a show at a single venue, and it's the first revue of Broadway tunes performed entirely without musical instruments! 12 songs, from Music Man's "76 Trombones," Cabaret's "Wilkommen" and West Side Story's "Gee, Officer Krupke" to The Fantasticks' "Try to Remember," My Fair Lady's "With a Little Bit O' Luck" and Carousel's "You'll Never Walk Alone." Some tunes, like Les Miserables' "Bring Him Home," will touch you and break your heart, Fiddler on the Roof's "If I Were a Rich Man," South Pacific's "There is Nothin' Like a Dame," Oklahoma's oompa-bandish "Oklahoma" and Guys and Dolls' "Fugue for Tinhorns" will crack you up. Enough said-this is another generous helping of great, funny stuff from the Edlos!

Songlist: 76 Trombones, Willkommen, Gee, Officer Krupke, Bring Him Home, I Am I, Don Quixote, If I Were A Rich Man, There Is Nothing Like a Dame, Oklahoma!, Fugue For Tinhorns, Try To Remember, With A Little Bit of Luck, You'll Never Walk Alone

Acappellypso

Edlos : Just Us    onsale

The Edlos first all-original album. This California foursome have been on the cutting edge of the new contemporary a cappella movement since their debut, and have sustained a loyal following, courtesy of their highly entertaining live performances. The group continues to parody anything and everybody, as on "Paper," "IRS Blues" and "Garbage Man" (the latter previously released on their "Sampler" CD), but in fact, their musical depth extends far beyond the comic, and embraces a variety of stylistic influences. "The Dream," as a case in point, traverses into classical territory and even has a quasi-operatic finale. "Down At The Mall" spills over into doo-wop, with it's nonsense syllables and high falsetto overlay. The Edlos' musical credentials bring a sophistication to their sound that is their own inimitable brand.

Songlist: Acappellypso, You, What A Surprise, Freedomsong, Our Home, Ascending Star of Bethlehem, For Daddy, Paper, Garbage Man, The IRSBlues, Down at the Mall, Kitty's Quake, Late Nightmare, The Dream

Edlos : The Edlos Sampler : 00  1 CD

Edlos : The Edlos Sampler    onsale

The Edlos are one the best-known groups in contemporary a cappella. Drawing on material from their previous three CD's, this "Sampler" is your basic Edlos 101, with a couple of new songs for extra credit: "Garbage Man" and "Mrs. Claus." This California group is known for their humor, and there is plenty of that, but there is plenty of substance as well: their solid education in the fundamentals of a cappella singing and the styles of barbershop and doo wop have endeared them to fans for many years past, and for many years to come!

Songlist: Garbage Man, For Ever And Ever, Amen, Tupelo Honey, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, The Dream, Sim Shalom, Mrs. Claus, Ascending Star Of Bethlehem

Edlos : WinterSongs    onsale

The Edlos are first-rate technical singers who amuse themselves and their zealous followers with zany antics and offbeat lyrics. This mix of the high and lowbrow has resulted in an eclectic sound that is umistakeably Edlos. For this special Christmas collection enjoy the Appalachian traditional, "Talkin' About Sufferin' Here Below," a Ukrainian carol, "Carol Of The Bells," "Big Santa (The Visit)," and "Sim Shalom," among others. This male quartet makes everything they do sound easy and casual, but listen intently: the whole is fashioned with the utmost of precision, and scholarship that takes years to acquire.

Songlist: Ascending Star of Bethlem, Little Drummer Boy, Gimme Some Presents, Big Santa (The Visit), Le Sommeil De L'Enfant Jesus (The Sleep of the Infant Jesus), Talk about Sufferin' Here Below, The Coventry Carol, Sim Shalom, All Through the Night, O Holy Night, Ukrainian Carol (Carol of the Bells)
