In Celebration of the Human Voice - The Essential Musical Instrument
About the boys of TMinus5
As a nationally-acclaimed and award-winning a cappella group, T Minus 5 is known for delivering a high-energy musical performance that combines pop, classic rock, a bit of country, and even elements of comedy.
The group has been together since 2000 and traveled throughout the country performing for Universities, Arts Councils, city events, and corporate conventions. Simulating all instrument sounds with just their voices, T Minus 5 is a high-energy a cappella group providing fun for the whole family.
T Minus 5 claimed first prize at the Denver Harmony Sweepstakes in 2001. Having only been a group for a year, they advanced to the national competition, and have been on a performing rampage ever since. Their energy and humor win them new fans wherever they go.
Throughout the past six years, the vocal band has produced four CD's, and is particularly excited about their latest album titled, Road Trip. The Recorded A Cappella Review Board (RARB) has said Road Trip has "Solid singing, inoffensive soloists, masculinity with a soft side. A little bit country, a little bit rock and roll."
Other highlights include sharing the stage with Grammy Award Winning pop artist Christopher Cross, Entertainer of the year Neal McCoy, LA Music Award Winner Carly Goodwin, country artists Jamie O'Neil, Kevin Sharp, Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband, Barry Carl formerly of Rockapella and internationally acclaimed group The Nylons and many others. T Minus 5 also makes frequent appearances on local TV and radio stations, and produce and host "A Capellastock," an annual a capella festival in Ogden, Utah, the largest event of its kind.
T Minus 5 is a vocal adventure that magically presents the power of the human voice for a high-energy performance of pure enjoyment and musical fascination!

Review: We had the pleasure of hearing the 6 male voices of T Minus 5 at the 2001 Harmony Sweeps Finals, where they performed as Rocky Mountain Regional Champs. The tight harmonies, country flavor and humor that wowed the crowd that night are present in spades on ╔And Counting. In fact, 'You Can Depend On Me,' 'Grow Old With You,' the hilarious 'Redneck Avenger,' 'Welcome To The Jungle' (which sounds suspiciously like 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight'), and 'Pie Jesu' were all part of their electric 12-minute performance. 'Best Years of our Lives,' from 'Shrek,' 'I Love You,' 'Precious Lord,' Paul Simon's 'You Can Call Me Al,' U2's 'All I Want,' John Fogerty's classic 'Down On The Corner' and 'Pie Jesu'đit's all good stuff. The guys are having fun up there, letting it all hang out with the confident spirit of born performers. One of the most impressive first CDs we've heard!
Songlist: Best Years Of Our Life, You Can Depend On Me, Radio Talk, Grow Old With You, I Love You, Welcome To The Jungle, Redneck Avenger, Precious Lord, You Can Call Me Al, All I Want, Down on the Corner, Pie Jesu
Review: The five young men of T Minus 5 got their first glimpse of fame in spring, 2000 in Ogden, Utah, winning a Weber State U. talent show. Having only been a group for one year, they entered and won the 2001 Harmony Sweepstakes Denver Regional against tough competition and went on to win 'Audience Favorite' at the Finals in San Rafael. They have been on a performing rampage ever since, their energy and humor winning them new fans wherever they go. There are 16 live cuts on 'Alive,' some favorites: 'Red Neck Avenger' (which wowed the crowd at the '01 Finals), Van Morrison's 'Brown Eyed Girl,' Paul Simon's 'Cecilia,' Bono's 'All I Want,' Sly Stone's 'Dance to the Music,' Ben E. King's 'Stand By Me,' 'Best Years of Our Lives,' 'Lean On Me' and 'Down to the River to Pray.' T Minus 5's forte is live performance-just listen to the audience response on 'Alive.' Great stuff!

Review: 'Purity' is the third excellent CD by 2001 Rocky Mountain Harmony Sweeps finalists, all-male quintet T Minus 5, an 8-song collection. Six of the tunes are Gospel hymns: 'Because I Have Been Given Much,' 'Precious Lord, Take My Hand,' 'Jesus, the Very Thought of Thee,' 'Once in Royal David's City,' 'I Need Thee Every Hour' and 'A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief' (which is lightly piano accompanied) The final two cuts are the folk tune 'Shenandoah' and 'The Star Spangled Banner.' Rich harmonies and deep feeling are present in each of these inspirational, beautiful selections.
Songlist: Because I Have Been Given Much, Precious Lord, Take My Hand, Jesus, The Very Thought Of Thee, Once In Royal David's City, I Need Thee Every Hour, A Poor Wayfaring Man Of Grief, Shenandoah, The Star Spangled Banner
Review: We know we're in for a good time with the first rock-solid vocal percussion beats of War's 'Low Rider' come on T-minus 5's 'radio,' which segues into Sly and the Family Stone's rock anthem 'Dance to the Music,' an electronic-funky, faux-horned masterpiece. Group member Shawn Satterthwaite contributes the sweet, romantic 'Your Love,' other nice originals are 'Wrapped Up In You' by Wayne Kirkpatrick, and ' Midnight Daze' by T Minus 5. Excellent covers of Lennon/McCartney's 'When I'm Sixty-Four,' 'Mayberry,' Barry Manilow's 'One Voice,' 'He Still Loves Me' (arranged by our friend Richard 'Bob' Green, and The Guess Who's 'American Woman' add to the good feeling. We loved T-Minus 5 at the 2001 Harmony Sweeps Finals, and their great harmonies and down home song selection have only gotten better. Every song on 'Road Trip' is a winner!
Songlist: Low Rider, Dance to the Music, I'll Still be Loving You, Your Love, Wrapped Up In You, One Voice, Midnight Daze, American Woman, When I'm Sixty Four, Mayberry, He Still Loves Me, Show Me the Way
