Tickets available at =============================== Hailed "one of the best pop-jazz vocal groups in the world" by the San Francisco Chronicle, m-pact is respected worldwide as a cutting edge trailblazer in the realm of vocal music. Emerging from an age of auto-tune and overproduction, this Los Angeles-based ensemble has cultivated a new generation of ears hungry for the fresh, raw power of nature's "first instrument" - the human voice. Touring renowned fine arts halls and jazz festivals across four continents, m-pact has performed with pop superstars Sheryl Crow, Boyz II Men, Natasha Bedingfield, and Ray Charles to name a few; as well as with jazz legends Natalie Cole, Bobby McFerrin, the Woody Herman Orchestra, the Maynard Ferguson Big Band, and many others. Their signature sound has been used in both TV themes and animated Disney feature films, and is enjoyed on jazz and pop radio worldwide. In the summer of 2016, m-pact announced the retirement of the band's two founding members, Marco Cassone and Trist Curless, prompting a significant "re-boot" and revamping of the ensemble's lineup. The result of the ensuing nationwide talent search is a jaw-dropping collection of America's most exciting vocal talent. Led by singer, beatboxer, and artistic director Jeff Smith (LHS & KU alum), these young pro's are not only tremendously gifted, but are deeply committed to continuing the traditions of innovation and excellence which have made m-pact an international sensation for more than 20 years. As m-pact enters their third decade, they continue to break new ground with innovative new recording projects, music videos, and awe-inspiring live performances. The group's multiple fine arts showcases have resulted in their being one of the most-requested acts of the year, and have left no doubt that m-pact's music will continue to reach music lovers around the world for many years to come.
