Counterpoint with Deke and Dietz

Jan 31, 2019

In this week's episode, hosts Deke Sharon and Rob Dietz sit down with
two of the current members of The Kinsey Sicks, "America's Favorite
Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet." The hilarious and musically-talented
Jeff Manabat and Nathan Marken, AKA the current Trixie and Winnie,
talk through the group's humble and socially-minded beginnings in
1993, and how the members of the group have remained faithful to their original authenticity and political mindset up to and through the most recent celebration of their 25th anniversary. With heart, sincerity, and pure fun, Jeff and Nathan discuss the importance of finding purpose and intention in song choice, and how the a cappella community can continue to lift up different identities and performances that might not always fit the mold.

Additional segments: History Minute featuring Lisa Forkish about the
group that inspired the movie Pitch Perfect, and a Sound Tutorial with
Kid Beyond.
