"Acapella is an art in itself and many of your well-known recording groups cannot sing without instruments. . .So when you throw your money down on the counter tell em Jersey City sent ya." With luck. there won't ever be no tuxedo put on these funky blues."
The Persuasions are practitioners of what is called "street corner music", an acapella style of singing that was natural to their Bedford-Stuyvesant home in Brooklyn due to factors such as such as the prohibitive expense of musical instruments and the marvelous acoustic qualities of high school restrooms. You're not going to find a group in the world more expert at instilling in its audience a heartfelt genuinely uplifting spirit of sheer joy."
