Join us at BOSS for the CARA Banquet! We’ll be celebrating in style with a red carpet, live presentation of CARAs, and a black tie barbecue! (Don’t worry, vegetarians, we’ve got you covered, too.) Look out for special performances throughout the evening that you will only be able to see at the CARAs. Cheer on your favorite nominees, grab some delicious Redbones, and join us for the most exclusive event of the weekend!
Your ticket includes a full dinner and soft drinks. Nominees (two representatives from each nominated group) may get a discount on their ticket by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org before purchasing.
During performances, audiences are astounded to hear everything from electric guitars and horns to drums and other percussion instruments. Yet, they don’t see one musical instrument on stage! Of course, the band doesn’t merely settle for imitation. Instead, these talented performers effortlessly layer every note and vocal “pop” with a joyful and skillful touch. Performances by these five singers: Maija Sariola, Susanna Lukkarinen, Jouni Kannisto, Juha Viitala and Tuukka Haapaniemi are filled with a delightful energy and exhilarating intensity.
Overboard is a professional a cappella group based in Boston. Since its inception, the band has been featured for the likes of American Idol, PUMA and Mitsubishi, as well as on the CBS Early Show. Overboard’s energetic live show, six albums, and “Free Track Tuesday” single of the week program have caught the attention of the global a cappella community, as well as Boston’s discerning local music scene. Since 2009, Overboard has been nominated for 10 Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards and 18 A Cappella Community Awards, among other accolades. Winners of the Boston Regional Harmony Sweepstakes Festival, Overboard has recently been featured on NBC’s “The Sing Off” Tour.
