The Bubs are coming back to NBC


Vicki and Steve McCormick shared this news about an upcoming live performance on NBC by the Beelzebubs, including their son, Matt McCormick. The Beelzebubs were the first runner-up in the 2009 debut season of The Sing-Off on NBC. Matt graduated from Mohawk in 2006 and was very involved in the Mohawk Music Department.
The NBC website doesn't say anything about this "reunion" concert yet, because they are still finishing up this season, but Matt McCormick and the Bubs (from 2 years ago) are all flying out Nov. 28- Dec 6th and they know it will be a live performance - so it will have to be on Monday Dec.5th (on NBC).

The top groups from the first 2 seasons were all invited back out to LA for that week of practice before the live show on the 5th. It’ll be a fun reunion for them and Matt is psyched!

1iota.com is offering access to tickets for The Sing-Off Live Reunion Show on December 4th and 5th. From their website:
BE PART OF NBC'S "THE SING-OFF" LIVE REUNION SHOW!

Come and be a part of the very special holiday reunion edition of NBC's critically acclaimed acapella singing show, 'The Sing-Off'.

Groups from all three seasons will be performing your favorite Holiday songs as well as some of the most lifting, inspirational songs of all-time.  And, as a bonus treat, our judges Ben Folds, Sara Bareilles and Shawn Stockman all plan to join in the festivities.

The show will tape in two parts, each 2 hours in length, at Sony Studios in Culver City.  Part I tapes on December 4th from 7-9pm and Part II is LIVE from 5-7pm on December 5th.

You Belong To Me

You Belong To Me
WWII Veterans' Stories & Music of the Era

Thursday, November 10, 2011
12:45 pm at the Mohawk High School Auditorium
6:30 pm at the Shelburne Falls Senior Center
Free Admission



On Thursday, November 10 there will be two performances of “You Belong to Me: World War II Veterans’ Stories and Music of the Era”, featuring Mohawk students as performers and stage technicians. The first performance will be at school and the second, in the evening, will be at the Shelburne Senior Center in Shelburne Falls. 

The project was developed by local artist Jackie Cooper and evolved from the interviews she conducted with local veterans, some of whom are the relatives of the students in the production. Kim Mancuso, a local director with international experience, is directing the performance. 

The public is welcome to attend the performance in the Mohawk auditorium at 12:45 pm or the evening performance in the Shelburne Senior Center at 6:30 pm. Admission is free.
