Home Free to perform in DeWitt

DEWITT — Straight from NBC-TV’s fourth season of The Sing-Off, the vocal band “Home Free” will appear at the Central Performing Arts Center in DeWitt on Friday, Feb. 14, at 7:30 p.m.

The Sing-Off Season 4 debuts Monday, Dec. 9, at 8 p.m. and features 10 a capella vocal groups, all competing for a $100,000 prize and a Sony Music recording contract.

Songs featured in season 4 will be available on iTunes the day after each telecast, but area folks can see “Home Free” in a live performance at the Central Performing Arts Center’s auditorium.

The group hails from Mankato, Minn., and has traveled all over the world performing at everything from black-tie events to casual high school assemblies.

The award-winning “Home Free” is a distinctive combination of comedy and music featuring five male vocalists with extensive theatrical and musical training.

Each performance showcases a new experience that draws in their audiences and leaves them amazed. Their genre of music covers a wide mix of pop, jazz, classical and country — all songs done with only the human voice and microphones, resulting in a truly unique and incredible sound.

The DeWitt performance, originally scheduled for Feb. 22, has been moved up to Valentine’s Day because “Home Free” will be embarking on a six-week, 30-city arena tour with other Sing-Off contestants starting in mid-February.

Tickets are on sale at DeWitt City Hall and at the door one hour before the performance. Advance tickets are $23 for adults, and $5 for students; and $25 and $5 at the door.

A limited number of tickets for a Valentine’s Day dinner featuring cheesy ravioli, chicken Alfredo, salad, bread sticks, red velvet cake and chocolate covered strawberries, tea and coffee is available for $12.50 per person.
