Six Appeal has performed from coast to coast at a multitude of venues and events, including live on ESPN at the 2013 Allstate Sugar Bowl. The group’s varied repertoire not only spans genres but decades.
What began as a hobby while a few founding members attended Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn., back in 2006 progressively evolved into a professional ensemble by 2010. Soon the group began introducing new members, creating the current dynamic and sound as a sextet. Presently, members of Six Appeal bring together a combined more than 75 years of musical experience.
To turn hobby into passion and gain a secure and definite spot within the a cappella community, Six Appeal moved their home base to Minneapolis in 2010.
In 2012, Six Appeal won the National Harmony Sweepstakes Championship in San Rafael, Calif. In addition to the first place title, the group also captured “Best Original Song” as well as the coveted “Audience Favorite” award.
Members hold secondary level education degrees in classroom music, musical composition, vocals and performance. An essential part of Six Appeal members’ mission is to spread their love for music to varying audiences and to empower young singers with hands-on experiences through their educational outreach program.
Six Appeal is made up of Jordan Roll, Michael Brookens, Trey Jones, Nathan Hickey, Reuben Hushagen and Andrew “Berko” Berkowitz.
