Description of Event: 

Rogers Center for the Arts

Special Guests Merrimack College’s own Mackapella!

Similar Jones is a high-energy vocal band, primarily rock and soul and influenced by elements of blues, funk, and jazz. Their repertoire consists of cover songs from the 50s, 60s, 70s, and today, and includes a growing number of original tunes. The Jones sound is marked by tight harmonies, intricate rhythms, innovative arrangements, and – most importantly – by a rock-solid groove. Similar Jones performs frequently at a wide variety of venues. For example: at Fenway Park, with Top 40 recording artist Aaron Carter; at city festivals; in Faneuil Hall Marketplace; on street corners of Provincetown and Boston; at a number of nightclubs in the Boston area; on the radio; at Tall Ships Boston. The Joneses also appeared as part of the Major League Baseball All-Star FanFest in Boston, and have done a string of performances for Radio Disney all over New England. They’ve also performed with such a cappella luminaries as The House Jacks and Sean Altman. Similar Jones has been selected to appear in the Boston regionals of the national Harmony Sweepstakes competition four of the last five years.

What Boston Jazz Voices offers is a unique combination of classic sounds plus contemporary vocal jazz idiom. Their membership consists of talented musicians from all backgrounds and age groups, and yet they are all dedicated to the same mission: to perfect the vocal jazz ensemble, and to capture the spirits of those who hear them. The group shares a love for the same ensemble vocal jazz singing that their predecessors dreamed about.
