WETBLANKET ON THE PEDANT ALERT!!!!

Definition number one in most dictionaries (I can't even believe that I am going to bring a dictionary into this discussion after dissing the practice in M.Ted's thread) is "without instrumental accompaniment". Definition number 2 is "in the style of church or chapel music".

Don't worry though, Leadfingers. We all still think you're the cat's. Even if you are wrong -- this is the first time I ever remember that actually being the case.

My favorite acapella groups...

Nashville Bluegrass Band
Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver
Front Range
(and like JimmyT mentioned) Manhattan Transfer
