The opening night of the Boston Sings (BOSS) A Cappella Festival is a scholastic competition featuring seven groups from across the country, as well as a special performance by Boston-based, neo-vocal pop band Birdland Avenue.

Performing groups:

  • Amazin’ Blue (University of Michigan)
  • UNT Green Tones (University of North Texas)
  • One Note Stand A Cappella (University of Texas–Austin)
  • Mixed Mode (University of Central Florida)
  • No Southern Accent (University of Florida)
  • The Unisons (Northeastern University)
  • VOLT (University of Tennessee–Knoxville)

With a unique blend and contemporary style, Birdland Avenue creates evocative music that blurs the lines between pop, neo-soul, and R&B. The three birds—Evan Linsey, Kayla Pichichero, and Toria Rainey—started singing together in college and formed the band in 2016. From three-part harmonies to percussion, they produce every sound with the human voice, using loop stations, samplers, and transformative effects to create their sound.
