A Cappella group Ball in the House to perform Friday

Friday, Nov. 15-Ball in the House musical performance from 11:30am-12:45pm in the A. Lincoln Commons! Ball in the House isn’t what you think. Taking a cappella to a new level, Ball in the House is so much more than just another singing group. They’re the redefinition of the a cappella genre with everything you’d expect from a world-class soul, pop, R&B group — except the instruments.  They are the voices behind the Cool Whip commercials. That’s right, you’ve probably heard them dozens of times before, and didn’t even know it! They’ve toured with pop sensations like Sugar Ray, Jessica Simpson and Darius Rucker, while also dialing up a piece of the past supporting The Temptations and Smokey Robinson. 5 guys, 5 voices – that’s it! This is a Red & Blue Crew Arts/Education event sponsored by the Logger Activities Board.
