Six Appeal is a world-class vocal ensemble infused with sharp comedic timing, and the energy and vitality of a rock band. Swearing off instruments, this award-winning vocal band takes audiences on a journey that spans decades of music – performing classic oldies, current chart-toppers and catchy original tunes – completely a cappella.
