Manhattan Transfer & Take 6 Singing Together on Upcoming Tour

by VVN Music

Two of the premier pure vocal groups, the Manhattan Transfer and Take 6, are touring together starting October 1 and running through February of next year with a show that will see them not only doing their own music but also singing together.

Called The Summit: The Manhattan Transfer Meets Take 6, the tour is the first time that either group has mixed with other singers on the stage for more than a guest appearance.

The Transfer's Janis Siegel recently talked with the Going Beyond Here blog (via the Huffington Post), telling them how the show will play out. It’s taken this long to put together the kind of a show that really works for the both groups. There’s going to be some of each group alone, and then there’s going to be total collaborative stuff where the 10 of us are on stage together. Then we’re going to break it up into smaller groups. There’s a lot of combinations. Cheryl and I are the only women, which is awesome! We have a little section where we sing each other’s tunes, a little bit of a snippet, like Battle of the Bands thing."
