The RockNRoll Chorus – no instruments, just voices. www.rocknrollchorus.com ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ “ The RockNRoll Chorus “This is what Rock and Roll music will sound like in Heaven.” —Garry Jones, President of Full Sail University It’s not collegiate a cappella. It’s not Glee, Pitch Perfect or The Sing-Off. It sounds like an army of singers backed by a full-tilt rock band...but there’s no band! It’s high-energy, it’s unique, it’s amazing and you will find yourself singing along and rockin’ out like you’re in the middle of an arena concert! It’s THE ROCKNROLL CHORUS! This talented act delivers all of your favorites, with a new edge. Enjoying high critical acclaim from 11 national tours, 6 full-length commercial CD releases, and working with legendary artists such as Bruce Springsteen, The Chieftains, Foreigner, Jefferson Airplane, and Kenny Loggins, New Jersey-based voices-only stage show, The RockNRoll Chorus (RNRC), is gearing up for their 2018 Summer Tour. A brand new album and live arena-style show will explode across stages throughout the USA! Directed by Joe Cantaffa, and coached by Fredi Walker-Browne (RENT, The Lion King), Eric Thompson, Matt Wolf, Lauren Ferguson, Christie Scott, John Vines, and many other talented staff, these young professionals perform a high energy rock show with a focus on healthy vocal technique and high production values.

AND….RNRC’s brand new album ”No Guilt Til Monday” is available on all major online outlets! 'Rock and Roll' is an attitude that suggests the ability to be unique and successful against the 'mainstream doubtful mentality'. It is not a sole suggestion of any particular style of music. THE ROCKNROLL CHORUS does feature contemporary music that is not often crafted (properly). However, this music is always executed through the vehicle of healthy, proper, ensemble singing while maintaining the feel and energy of each piece's original intent. The RockNRoll Chorus—no instruments, just voices.
