Naturally 7 is an American male music group

call "Vocal Play" (

unison to recreate a different musical instrument from drums to brass
instruments to guitars)

. Naturally 7 band members are Roger Thomas (musical director, arranger, 1st Baritone,
Rap), Warren Thomas (percussion, guitar, clarinet, 3rd tenor) Rod
Eldridge (1st tenor, scratching, trumpet), Jamal Reed (4th Tenor,
electric guitar), Dwight Stewart (2nd baritone), Garfield Buckley (2nd
Tenor, Harmonica) and “Hops” Hutton (Bass).
"The Performing Arts Society is absolutely thrilled to be able to
bring such a unique, exciting and talented group of performers to Grand
Bahama," said Dalia Feldman, Founder of the Society.
"The Naturally 7 concert and workshop have
been in the works for
over a year, after a video of a live performance of theirs was emailed
to me by a committee member. At that time, N7 was a huge hit in Europe,
but had just started to gain recognition in North America. Now, after a
tour of the US and Canada, and performances in Vancouver at the Winter
Olympics, they are in the midst a world tour with Michael Buble. What a
thrill it will be to have them here on Grand Bahama!
Naturally 7 has performed in Europe, the
U.K., Canada, Australia and the U.S.
TV performances on such shows as the Today Show, and the Tonight Show
in America, and the Royal Variety Television show in London in front of
His Royal Highness Prince Charles.
band has now recorded four albums – ‘Wall Of Sound’, “Non Fiction” , “What Is It” , “Christmas …It’s A Love Story”,
“Ready II Fly”, and in March 2010 they will release their new CD entitled 'Vocal Play'.
makes Naturally 7 special, is that every instrument sound that they
sing is created from the human voice. There are no actual drums,
guitars, horns, flutes, or any other instrument that is heard when
listening to them perform; it’s the band members playing each of their
their rich harmonies, an unbelievable ability to replicate instruments
and a stage presence that can be felt in every seat of the house,
Naturally 7, the first 'vocal play' group ever, are amazing, charming
fans where ever they perform.
