Take 6 Rouses Congress Hall

Take 6 had them singing and dancing in the aisles at Warsaw's Congress Hall with their superlative vocals and beautiful, synchronized sound. The Seventh Day Adventist a cappella sextet from Alabama sang their greatest hits and promoted their most recent album The Standard (2008).

The tickets tend to walk out of the booking office whenever Take 6 are due to turn up in Warsaw and it was no different this time round before their Oct. 30 gig here. The Standard was on sale in the lobby and sold briskly.

The concert opened in a blaze of dancing and the audience saw the light right away. The group, whose style is an amalgam of soul, gospel, R&B and pop, belted out their greatest hits along with a few jazz standards. They met with audience members in the Congress Hall lobby after the concert.

The present Take 6 lineup comprises Mark Kibble, Claude V. McKnight III, Dr. Cedric Dent, David Thomas, Alvin Chea and Joey Kibble. Take 6 have appeared at many of the world's most famous music festivals in their more than 20-year career. They have recorded over a dozen albums and have received numerous awards, including 10 Grammies. They have worked with some of the biggest names in the business, including Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder and Whitney Houston. Several of the tracks on The Standard feature such household names as George Benson and Al Jarreau. An archived recording of Ella Fitzgerald even finds its way into the mix.

Take 6 previously performed in Warsaw in 2003, 2005 and 2007.
