Vinylstreet LogoVinyl Street
5:45 - 6:30 p.m.

Founded in 2007, Vinyl Street is comprised of young professionals who literally can’t stop harmonizing together. Besides spending their free time singing together, they love creating their own spin on popular songs. All the arrangements are original, and they love sharing their unique sound with the Greater Boston music scene.

Vinyl Street is a semi-professional a cappella group based in Somerville, MA. You can find them performing at the Lansdowne Pub near Fenway Park, the Lilypad in Cambridge, dropping some aca-bombs on the streets of Boston, and at one of their favorite annual gigs, singing at the Walk For Hunger. They're currently recording their first album, so keep an eye out for their EP!
