Kazual


We welcome the return of the Acapella Group Kazual to Family Weekend.
Friday, September 18th @ 8pm
Hansen Student Center
Kazual (pronounced ‘casual’) is one of the hottest and freshest Acapella Troupes to hit the market! They offer the complete package--they sing, dance, write and produce, engaging audiences across the country through touring and their ever-presence on National TV. Kazual blends harmonious styles and eclectic mixes of R&B and Hip-Hop with choreographed dance and dub-step. Opening for Nelly and Beyonce, Kazual’s unique tones remind you of an updated Boyz II Men; this is one group you don’t want to miss!
