Vocal band Business Casual combines elements of pop, jazz, and other genres to produce fresh a cappella versions of vintage chart toppers, today's top 40 hits, and award-winning original songs. Featuring powerful leads, floor thumping bass, and sizzling beats, audiences can't believe that this group is using only their voices! Since 2012 the group has performed at corporate and community events throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, where they are based.

In 2018, Business Casual won the title of National Champions of the Harmony Sweepstakes a cappella competition. In previous years, they swept the San Francisco regional Harmony Sweepstakes a cappella competition taking home awards including best arrangement, audience favorite, best original song, and first place overall. Business Casual has performed at corporate

events and conferences including Dreamforce and Wizard World Comic Con along with community events such as the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival and San Jose Christmas in the Park. In addition to a regular schedule of private events, the group has played live public gigs at Neck of the Woods and Feinstein's at the Nikko in San Francisco, and in 2017 opened for Naturally 7 at the Great American Music Hall. The group's first original single, "Ain't No Way," was released in March 2018. Business Casual has conducted workshops with local schools and participated in collaborations with other Bay Area artists.
