Talk of da Town Bay Area a cappella group Talk of da Town brings down the house with sizzling renditions of the greatest hits of Motown, rhythm and blues, and doo-wop, along with a few hot gospel numbers. Originally formed at San Francisco’s Galileo High School, the group has spent the past three decades performing in Europe and across America. Members Paul Carrington, Carl Douglas, Doug Stepney, Stan Lockwood, and Chase Ruffin present their unaccompanied harmonies at churches, fairs, and festivals, and have appeared with an array of amazing artists, from Ray Charles and James Brown to Sarah Vaughan and Dizzy Gillespie, as well as spending four weeks with Jerry Lawson on the NBC a cappella show, The Sing-Off.

Their album, People Get Ready, captures the pure heart and soul of an enduring American art form. With finely crafted arrangements and a wealth of warmth and charm, these five Bay Area crooners celebrate the joyful spirit at the root of some of our greatest music. Their gorgeous vocals are guaranteed to get your toes tapping and your heart thumping!
