KFAI is proud to sponsor The Persuasions at the Cedar Cultural Center on Friday, April 11, at 8:00 pm.
The Persuasions may not have invented a cappella, but they’ve carried the torch and kept the art form alive – sometimes single-handedly – for over five decades.
They have done this by staying true to themselves, true to the music, and true to their fans. They have recorded and performed songs ranging from Frank Sinatra to Frank Zappa, from Sam Cooke to Bob Dylan, and from Lennon and McCartney to Rogers and Hammerstein. They have taken standards and children’s classics and infused them with their own unique style and substance.
Their singing, style, and musical inventory have always included the heavy influence of gospel, a major measure of soul, and a dose of pop. They are the acknowledged Kings of A Cappella!
