No-holds-barred, irreverent, kick-ass, Face-peeling A Cappella.

Biography

In 2005, Firedrill! stepped back, got a big running start and LEAPED... making a big splash at the '05 Harmony Sweeps - winning the Boston regional. Two years later Firedrill! still has the same disregard for what contemporary a cappella is supposed to be. In 2006, Firedrill! released their first EP, Rock Paper Scissors. Since then, the group has been honored with several awards and nominations including but not limited to 2 Contemporary A Cappella Recording Award (CARA) nominations [http://www.casa.org/content/view/775/170/], an A Cappella Community Award (ACA) for best Pop/Rock album, ACA runner-up for Favorite Professional Album, and a track selection for the SING IV compilation [http://www.allforacappella.org/sing.html]. Since their last appearance the group has reconfigured and stepped up it's repertoire and performance schedule, appearing at SoJam in North Carolina and Hosting the ICCA Finals at Lincoln Center in April '07, opening several concerts for Martin Sexton, and nearly sinking a Boston Harbor Cruise ferry.

The future you ask? - Firedrill! is recording, learning, and gigging out in Boston. Expect to see us on a Wheaties box in 2008 for their "Non-Steroid-Using A Cappella Groups" tribute.
