“It’s a tribute to Boston’s Ball in the House that the first thing you marvel at upon hearing its debut is the beauty of the songs – a tasty mlange of classic street-corner soul, funk, and hip-hop – and the remarkable way the band’s voices interlock.”
“The guys in Ball in the House dont need instruments to make music. They redefine pop by presenting it a cappella style, with just their voices.”
Milva Didomizio, Boston Globe
“They have raised the bar with interlocking voices blended to perfection and have developed a tight show that features their own classic street-corner soul, funk and hip-hop. Theyre a musical force unto themselves.”
