List and Description of CWMP Vocal Groups:
RAISE, R&B-Gospel-Pop vocal super group
Our R&B-Gospel super group RAISE has been making a lot of noise in Los Angeles the past year, and has gained quite a popularity with celebrity parties, event planners and industry events
RAISE is a unique and malleable group comprised of some of the freshest and jaw-dropping young urban talent in Los Angeles. It is an ethnically diverse group of cutting-edge solo ... artists who come together each time on a new song or project to create something original for our awesome and discerning clients. Our clientele have all expressed how fun, spirited and engaging RAISE is, not to mention professional and easy to work with.
RAISE has recently been popular with celebrity parties and events: Jamie Foxx and Sony Pictures for Annie promo, The Anti-Defamation League honoring Mark Burnett and Roma Downey (opening act), Big Bang Theory actor Johnny Galecki for his 40th bday at his house, actress Judy Greer with guests Sean Gunn and Christina Hendricks at Greer's house, Don Cheadle, Reese Witherspoon, to name a few.
In LA, our most recent clients include: Disney California Adventure. CWMP was contacted to write a Holiday show featuring RAISE, and they sang everyday for 2 months, SEIU as opening number for their annual conference at Los Angeles Convention Center (Feb 5, 2016), for Vistage Intl Conference WorldChair2016 at JW Marriott Convention Center (Feb 1, 2016.)

#TheAccidentals Barbershop and Doo Wop/Motown Quartet
These are 4 talented and engaging young men who love the old time harmonies and sentimental songs from that era, and who come dressed in classic and handsome period inspired costumes, complete with straw hats, suspenders and bow ties! These guys are also perfect for Patriotic and Americana events as much of the repertoire is perfect for that genre.
Our engaging and inclusive set and performances will invite all your guests to sing a long, clap and dance and laugh with us...we certainly love to entertain young and old alike!
#TheAccidentals Doo Wop and Motown Quartet
These same 4 young and talented guys have an extensive list of Doo Wop and Motown hits and perform these tunes in classic 50/60s inspired suits for a cool, classy and handsome look.
Examples of the songs we sing in this genre are:
My Girl, The Longest Time, BlueMoon, Goodnight Sweetheart, Calendar Girl, Stand By Me and more.
Here are video clips of #TheAccidentals singing everything from Barbershop to Motown and Doo Wop to contemporary and in varying costumes and styles:
"Daisy, Daisy" (using recipient name, Polly, as we do :) and "Hello My Baby"
'Just the Way You Are" (Bruno Mars)
"Just the Way You Are"
B-twix'd all-girl vocal group
The demand from clients for an all girl a cappella group had us create this fresh new group!
B-twix'd All-Girl Vocal Group is a pop a cappella group specializing in modern Top 40, a la Pitch Perfect's The Bellas.
Out of the Vox, mixed gendered contemporary a cappella group
Our newest and most premier group Out of the Vox is our answer to Pentatonix. It is 3 girls and 2 guys, complete with excellent and awesome beat boxer and contemporary pop vocals and effects.
Most recently, Out of the Vox was hired by On the Move Entertainment out of NYC for a private birthday party in Palm Beach, FL for Barnes and Noble owner/creator Leonard Riggio. Mrs. Riggio wanted to surprise her husband at their home with a top notch vocal group singing a 15 minute set of Mr. Riggios favorite tunes. As CWMP specializes in custom sets, we arranged a whole set of songs tailored to his liking, and we appeared at the party and performed for all of his friends and family! As this is a brand new group (1st performance was Feb 27 2016) we don't have video (due to the private nature of this high profile client) but would be happy to provide videos and photos upon request.
NATIONAL NONSENSE political satire musical revue show, and corporate brand singers
We are a traveling musical comedy show that is humorous musical political satire, a song and dance revue called "National Nonsense". No one is safe! Audiences will be toe tapping and singing along and laughing all the way through this hilarious 45 minute show. This group has been seen on Letterman, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report and Huckabee on Fox News. We use popular American Classic songs from the 50's 60's 70's and 80's to satirize everything that is currently going on in America from Obamacare to Donald Trump and have impersonations of The Donald and Melania, KellyAnne Conway, The Obamas, Hilary Clinton, Sarah Palin, etc.!
Additionally, National Nonsense has been hired to sing for The Weather Channel and for corporations such as Vistage International, chosen out of many vocal groups for our diversity and American themes whether it be national news such as weather or a Hollywood revue, National Nonsense always delivers the goods!
As the fictitious group The Beltway Bunch:
