“Take 6 mastered the blending of harmonies to get the groove out of Christmas!” – Seattle PI.com


Ten-time GRAMMY and Dove Award winning a cappella jazz group TAKE 6 performed at the Ferst Center for the Arts at Georgia Tech in Atlanta on Friday, December 2nd.  Despite the warm weather of late, they were able to get the crowd in the holiday spirit with their performance of several Christmas songs including “Joy to the World,” “Let it Snow,” “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” O Come All Ye Faithful” and “The Sugarplum Dance” which is from their latest Christmas CD titled “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.”



The group delighted one audience member by calling her up to the stage and singing “Happy Birthday” to her.  Someone let them know in advance that it was her birthday... lucky lady!


Although this was a Christmas concert, the band performed a medley of non-Christmas music covering songs from when they were coming up like “How Come You Don’t Call Me Anymore?” by Prince, “Can’t Hide Love” by Earth, Wind and Fire, “What a Fool Believes” by Michael McDonald, “I Wish” by Stevie Wonder, “All This Love is Waiting For You” by DeBarge as well as “Rock With You,” “Remember the Time” and “Human Nature” by Michael Jackson.  They also took a request from the audience and performed “Oh Mary, Don’t You Weep.”


These guys have been performing for so long and have developed such a rapport with each other it really shows on stage.  They have a wonderful sense of humor and had the crowd laughing throughout the performance with their antics and banter with each other.  You could tell the crowd was enjoying the music and didn’t want the evening to end. 


The band was available after the show for fans who wanted to take pictures and get autographs.  They were kind, gracious and funny as they chatted amongst themselves and with the fans.  It’s always nice when artists make themselves available to the public.  Check the website for upcoming tour dates to see them live.  Or pick up a copy of one of their Christmas cd's... a perfect gift for yourself or a friend or loved one.  And have yourself a merry little Christmas...
