                    Shooz Audio Demo

Here's what people are saying about Cool Shooz:

Crestone Music Festival Program

August 6-8, 2004

            Thunderbolt and lightning, very very frightening-- me!'

   Yet, as heads turn at the bar, it quickly becomes clear that the strains of Queen's singular classic "Bohemian Rhapsody" aren't emanating from any jukebox, or the amps of some anonymous cover band running through its numbers from the Redfish's small concert stage.

   No, the complex and campy song is being reproduced, nearly note-for-note, by a six-man a cappella group called Cool Shooz. Not only do the Denver act's singers recreate Freddy Mercury's near-operatic vocals and harmonies, but they also provide their own backing music-- from cymbal crashes and jumpy basslines to Brian May's guitar solos-- all with their mouths.

   It's quite the finale-- rapturously received, no less-- for a set that's already included vocal renditions of the Beatles' "Come Together", Edgar Winter's "Free Ride" and the Who's "Pinball Wizard...Clearly, this isn't your father's a cappella..."
