A cappella groups have a tendency to be overtly gimmicky. With no instruments and only vocal prowess to bolster its music, an a cappella group rarely amounts to much and is typically called upon to be the shtick of some party or get together when all the members of the band dress in ridiculous clothing and sing barbershop quartet style tunes. In an attempt to sway the public's opinion about a cappella groups, The King's Singers present an extremely diverse song catalog that pulls just as heavily from old classical opera music as from modern top 40 hits. The band was founded in England in 1968 and is one of the world's oldest a cappella groups still in existence.
