Ex-Rockapella star Sean Altman is "tuneful and sharply witty" (LA Times) and "relentlessly clever (Chicago Tribune) with “catchy melodies, clever arrangements and lyrics that yield satiric gems,” (Washington Post) combining "the tunefulness of the Beatles and the spot-on wit of Tom Lehrer,” (Boston Globe) with a “silky tenor voice that produced chills.” (NY Times)

Altman is widely regarded as “the Father of Modern A Capella,” and co-founded and led Rockapella on the Emmy-winning PBS-TV series Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?, for which he co-wrote the theme song. He currently sings a cappella with The GrooveBarbers and Doowopera, original pop songs on guitar as a solo artist and original comedy songs as JEWMONGOUS. (Note: JEWMONGOUS will come to Next Stage on December 23.)

Jack Skuller is the 2014 recipient of the Holly Prize, an award made possible by the Songwriters Hall of Fame as a tribute to the legacy of Buddy Holly. He's received press coverage in the New York Post, Examiner, Teen Vogue and American Songwriter Magazine among many others. The Deli Magazine wrote, “Jack Skuller is a teen idol in the wrong era. Buddy Holly would be proud.”

Skuller has performed his original music around the country with Radio Disney, is a regular performer with the acclaimed Losers Lounge tribute series at Joe’s Pub in New York and his latest singles have been released on indie label Mint 400 Records.
