Not to be confused with the sensational A Cappella band with the same name, 'Rockapella' is an original a cappella piece with a slow, almost Baroque opening that builds into a high-intensity groove. Features soloist and doo-wop bass line for added energy. A lot of fun for audience and performers! The lush and comical a cappella arrangement of Tom Lehrer's famous parody, 'I Hold Your Hand in Mine,' is faithful to the original in length and tone. Harmonically, it recalls Gene Puerling with a nod to barbershop. The ranges are well within the limits of a good men's jazz group. Levine added four words after the last chord which should get a big laugh if the audience isn't already in hysterics. 'Rockin Robin' was made popular by Michael Jackson and the Jackson Five. This arrangement, written for four-part men's ensemble with a tenor solo, has tight harmonies and abrupt tempo changes that are sure to keep the audience's attention.
