Months of honing harmonies will come to fruition later this month when a new Norfolk acapella band make their debut performances.

With acapella enjoying a revival partly thanks to the US TV show Glee, a group of six musicians decided to get together to offer a party band with a difference.

And The Acafellas - Joe Ringer, Lee Gibling, Mark Read, Djinh Kamei, Ben Weston and Sam Wheeler-Brown - will make their public performance debut at the EDP Wedding Show this month.

Spanning doo wop to hip hop, the band do not use instruments, but recreate classic tunes using just their voices.

Mr Ringer, a familiar face in the local music scene and frontman for his own Joe Ringer Band, said: “I’ve had my own band for a couple of years and the drummer is a really wicked beat boxer.

“I had run some choirs in the past so I can do the musical arrangements and we decided to give acapella a go. We found some really great singers and have been rehearsing since October.

“Acapella has made a real comeback recently. It went away in the 1970s and 1980s when everything went electronic, but people really like the retro feel of it and it’s great for events and weddings - something a bit quirky and different.

“We’ve been rehearsing for months and the EDP Wedding Show will be our first public appearances.”

The EDP Wedding Show will take place at the Norfolk Showground in Costessey, on Saturday, February 23, 10am-5pm and Sunday, February 24, 10am-4pm.

There will be more than 150 exhibitors, with prospective brides and grooms able to choose from all the traditional essentials – including cakes, cars, photographers, venues, entertainment and, of course, bridal wear.

Tickets are £7 per person, £12 for two tickets, and £20 for a wedding party of four. To book call 01603 772175 or 01603 772190 or visit www.edp24.co.uk/weddings
