All-vocal group MO5AIC (Mosaic) has announced a new block of tickets that are available for upcoming performances through July at the Shimmer Cabaret Showroom at the LVH – Las Vegas Hotel & Casino.
The five-member vocal band that has been described by Tony Bennett as “the best vocal group I’ve ever heard,” performs their energetic, family-friendly, 70-minute show at the 350 seat Shimmer Cabaret showroom at 8:30 p.m. on select nights May – July 2014.
MO5AIC consists of members Josh Huslig, Heath Burgett, Jake Moulton, Corwyn Hodge and Roopak Ahuja. MO5AIC’s Shimmer Cabaret show will blend R&B, pop, rock, jazz, big band and Top 40 songs, all performed with a twist and suitable for all ages. The show will include audience interaction and will showcase the members’ endearing and entertaining camaraderie and humor.
Hailing from the tradition of a cappella music, MO5AIC performs with no instruments, using just their voices and microphones to create a full sound that frequently has audiences puzzling over where the band is MO5AIC was the winner of MTV’s Top Pop Group competition in 2008 and semi-finalists of NBC’s America’s Got Talent in 2009 and has since opened for Prince, Stevie Wonder, Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas and Jay Leno.
“For us, the voice is the instrument, the raw starting point for the sound,” said Josh Huslig, who founded MO5AIC in 2002. “The ways we choose to amplify or distort and alter the voice are really no different than how a guitar player might route through a distortion pedal of effects bank. We are sort of a hybrid between a band and an a cappella group, and we can hold our own next to any full instrumentation.”
The result is vocally astounding performances, such as its rendition of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, that have audiences gobsmacked at what is coming out of their mouths. MO5AIC has also garnered accolades from many fellow performers including Boyz II Men who are currently headlining their own Las Vegas residency at The Mirage Hotel. The two groups first met in 2007 when MO5AIC won a nationwide search held by CBS’s The Early Show for “The Next Great A CappellaGroup” judged by Boyz II Men.
