Earl Okin and friends.

Earl Okin has been around for a while. He recorded his first single in 1967—at Abbey Road. He’s opened for an eclectic bunch of acts: Jean-Luc Ponty, Van Morrison and, in 1979, Wings. He’s skilled at performing jazz, and bossa nova—and standup comedy. What’s his show like? Who knows! [YouTube knows – ed.]

The evening’s other act also hails from across the pond: The Oxford Belles are the original female a cappella of some school in the UK—Hogwarts, I think (they are wizards… of sound!). The term is over—they finished, like, yesterday—and nothing says summer like an international a cappella tour. Expect the usual assortment of dynamically arranged classics, chart-toppers and mashups. Except better, because they’re from Oxford. And they dance. Dancing singing English wizards. I know what I’m doing this Wednesday.
