Take 6

Why has the a capella group Take 6 been around for so long and been successful for so long? The answer is simple: faith, friendship, respect and, above all, a lot of love for music. For more than 40 years, the six singers of Take 6 have sung a full trophy case. The group continues to push the boundaries of their own creativity and musical world - both on every new album and live.

Take 6 has performed with greats such as Stevie Wonder, Brian Wilson, Ben E. King, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Al Jarreau, Ella Fitzgerald, Ray Charles and Whitney Houston, to name a few. Tonight they bring their unforgettable a capella singing to the Great Hall.

The most awarded acapella group in history, heralded by Quincy Jones as the "Baddest vocal cats on the planet!" are the quintessential a cappella model for vocal genius.

With 10 Grammy Awards, 10 Dove Awards, 2 NAACP Image Awards, a Soul Train Award, and more, Take 6 (Claude McKnight, Mark Kibble, Joel Kibble, Dave Thomas, Alvin Chea and Khristian Dentley) continues to bring extraordinary vocals to their worldwide audiences.


Take 6's new recording: ICONIC

Their new recording, ICONIC, is composed of the songs the sextet loves to perform both on stage and for the pure joy of lending their voices to songs that have taken on a greater meaning to them and to their audiences over their career of nearly four decades.

These eclectic tunes pay tribute to both the music and the artists that made them famous, from a fun and vocally significant cover of Justin Timberlake's Can't Stop the Feeling, a unique and harmonic interpretation of Christopher Cross' Sailing, Khristian’s melodic and memorable vocal on Norah Jones' Don't Know Why to a jazz cover that the Beatles would surely be pleased with of Got To Get You Into My Life. They pay homage to their friend Al Jarreau, with their rendition of Roof Garden, and are true to their gospel roots with the hymn Nothing But the Blood.

Take 6 has admirably and adeptly crossed most musical genres, from straight-ahead Jazz to Pop to adult R&B, and from doo wop to the blues. Like a fine-tuned vocal orchestra (Alvin, bass; Khristian, baritone; Claude, Dave, Mark and Joel, tenors), the group continues to push the boundaries of creativity and musical genius with every new release, and with their ever-evolving live performances - Book your tickets today!
