Performing a fresh mix of a cappella singing, beatboxing and body music. Deeply rooted in Jazz, Funk, R&B and World Music grooves, this ferociously talented ensemble creates soulful sounds infused with infectious harmonies and lightening-fast improvisations, percussively punctuated by beatboxing and body music -- the kinetic component that sets SLAMMIN apart and on the cutting edge of a cappella performance.
"Vocal music has a long tradition in jazz, and a new CD by the Bay Area ensemble SLAMMIN shows that tradition moving into new territory."
"Bringing together some of California's most inventive singers . . . the multigenerational ensemble combines the improvisational imperative of a jazz combo with an expansive repertoire of reggae, funk, bebop and soul. . . inspiring gasps of amazement from the audience . . . known for its impromptu acts and finely honed arrangements of soul-drenched pieces."
