Five O'Clock Shadow


Five O'Clock Shadow

:"This article is about the a cappella group; for other meanings, see five o'clock shadow."

Five O'Clock Shadow was an a cappella group from Boston, Massachusetts, existing from 1991 to 2003. The band had performed on FOX News, A&E Network, ABC, ESPN and VH-1's "breakthrough" series. They released 4 cassettes and 5 CDs, winning many Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards. The band has become active on a part-time basis again after a period of being disbanded.

Currently, the members are:
* David Stackhouse, vocals, vocal percussion, bass. As "Stack", as he is commonly known, does both the beats (vocal drums) and the vocal bass line simultaneously, he is also a "beatbass", a termed he has coined. He is also one of the few users of the specialist neck microphone known as a "thumper", by VOCOMOTION that accentuates only the low frequencies below 125 Hz emitted from within his neck.
* Paul Pampinella, baritone. He is also a member of jazz a cappella group Vox One and also currently teaches voice at his alma mater, Berklee College of Music.
* Dan Lennon, tenor.
* Oren Malka, tenor.
* Caleb Whelden, tenor.
