WHO: Jeff Thacher
AWARD: Best CAL Album
Jeff Thacher is best known as a member of the notorious Rockapella (www.rockapella.com), where for nearly 20 years, he’s served as the fab five’s full-time vocal percussionist. He’s widely recognized as a pioneer in the field. When not touring the globe with Rockapella, Jeff has applied his talents as a professional producer and recording engineer on dozens of a cappella albums, as well as for a variety of other independent artists. Jeff is a co-founder of Boston’s own legendary group, the mighty FOCS (Five O’Clock Shadow), and holds a music degree from Berklee College of Music. He’s given many lectures & workshops on the music industry and careers in music, as well as his colorful life in the studio and with Rockapella, and is delighted to return to beautiful Boston for the mighty BOSS!
Rockapella was CARA-nominated for Best Pop Album last year, and this year is nominated for Best Holiday Album.
About BOSS, Jeff says: “I started out in Boston, and quickly grew to love her. Boston is a city of music, and has nurtured and propagated so much a cappella. The city has long deserved its own successful yearly event. I hope it continues for many years to come!”
