The Transit Vocal Band will perform Friday, April 19 at 7:30 p.m. at the Halle Cultural Arts Center in downtown Apex.
Combining soaring leads, smooth harmonies, and a thumping rhythm section, transit demonstrates the power, versatility, and emotion of the most natural instrument of all, the human voice.
Transit is five singers, that’s it. Their only instruments are their natural born voices. Everything you hear from the stage and on their studio recordings begins with the human voice.
Utilizing the latest technology they combine their vocal talents with stage and studio effects to bring their music to life and put on a show that those who have never seen a vocal band will hardly believe.
Transit’s latest studio recording, Little of Your Time, was nominated for a 2012 Contemporary A Cappella Recording Award for Best Pop/Rock Song.
Tickets are $12 adult and $7 students. Buy tickets at www.thehalle.org, www.etix.com, call the box office 919-249-1120 or stop by the Halle at 237 N. Salem St.
