BLOOMINGTON, Ill.— Ball in the House, a male a cappella group whose catchphrase promises “music that’ll move ya,” will perform at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 4 at the Hansen Student Center, located on Illinois Wesleyan’s campus. The concert is free and open to the public.

The five-member vocal group makes classics in Pop, R&B and Soul their own with a style that is said to be comparable to Boyz II Men, The Temptations and Take 6. One critic from The Boston Globe wrote, “Ball in the House has everything you would expect to find in a successful pop/rock band...the one thing it doesn't have is instruments."

Averaging 250 tour dates a year, Ball in the House has appeared in concert with The Beach Boys, Gladys Knight, The Jonas Brothers, Jessica Simpson, Fantasia, Blondie, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson, KC and the Sunshine Band, Kool & the Gang, as well as many others.
