Name Dropping 101 ; The Binghamton Crosbys

>>I was fortunate to be in the right place at the right time today- I got to see The Binghamton Crosbys perform. Check the bio listed on their site:
"The Binghamton Crosbys are an all-male a cappella group at Binghamton University in Binghamton, New York. They are a four time national championship finalist and also 2003 winner of the ICCA, International Competition for Collegiate A Cappella Championships. They are more commonly referred to as simply, the Crosbys. "

Apparently, the group has been established for about 27 years, holding auditions for new members as others graduate. I've never seen anything like this before, and I was honestly blown away. So was everyone else who saw them, I'm sure. Not only are they all crazy talented, but they perform with such passion that you can really tell they love what they do, and it makes you love watching them just that much more. They don't just stand there while singing either, they move around & really get into it. According to their tour calender, looks like they're going to be performing at various High Schools on Long Island until the 12th. Check them out if you get the chance... so if you live on Long Island and go to high school, I'd suggest looking at the calendar.

Here's a video of the Crosbys performing "Zappa Medley". [Their YouTube Channel]

>>Also, you can find a bunch of Crosby albums on iTunes. Just search The Binghamton Crosbys, or click the picture below for the link to their 25 Year "Best Of" compilation. I bought it today, and it's just awesome.
