ENGLEWOOD, N.J. -- The a capella act that's played on five continents and was even invited to President Obama's White House is coming to Englewood's bergenPAC.
The Maccabeats take the stage Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 7:30 p.m. VIP tickets are $79 and include a meet and greet with the singers. Other tickets range from $19-$49.
The Maccabeats have entertained hundreds of audiences worldwide, often travelling with little more than the shirts on their backs and the ties on their necks. Using nothing more than the unadulterated human voice, a clean-cut presentation, and a little Jewish humor, this unique group of singers is able to connect with fans of all backgrounds and ages.
Originally formed in 2007 as Yeshiva University’s student vocal group, The Maccabeats have recently emerged as both Jewish music and a cappella phenomena, with more than 20 million views on YouTube and numerous TV appearances. They have four albums: 2010′s "Voices From The Heights," 2012′s "Out Of The Box," 2014′s "One Day More" and 2015′s "A Maccabeats Hanukkah."
The Maccabeats perform an eclectic array of Jewish, American, and Israeli songs. Their breakthrough piece, “Lecha Dodi,” combines Jewish liturgy with Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”
They’ve played sold-out shows to thousands across five continents and over 30 states and provinces. They’ve been invited to join reggae star Matisyahu and Jewish music star Yaakov Shwekey on stage as well as to Gracie Mansion by former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg. They’ve also been invited to the White House by President Barack Obama.
Tickets are available at Ticketmaster or the bergenPAC Box Office, (201) 227-1030.
bergenPAC is located at 30 North Van Brunt St., Englewood.
