The Center for the Arts, University at Buffalo, presents Home Free at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 12.
When country a cappella band Home Free was crowned season four champions of NBC's "The Sing-Off" this past December, their victory was by no means the beginning of a career for the five country stars from Minnesota. Rather, it was a satisfying culmination of nearly a decade of hard work and commitment to a vocal craft growing in popularity.
Founded by brothers Chris and Adam Rupp during their college years in the early 2000s, Home Free had been perfecting their live show for years prior to "The Sing-Off," performing together for crowds in countless state and county fairs, on college campuses, in front of Fortune 500 companies, and in theaters all across the country. It was their experience on the road that carried them to a "Sing-Off" victory, swelling their fanbase and bringing their homegrown country style into a national spotlight.
Home Free continues to entertain audiences nationwide with their high-energy show, peppered with quick-witted humor that meshes Nashville standards with pop hits dipped in country flavor. They arrive in town on the heels of their debut release on Columbia Records, "Crazy Life."
