Laguna Beach Live! presents benefit concert on April 17 featuring m-pact

Laguna Beach Live! presents a special benefit concert on April 17 at [seven-degrees] featuring m-pact, a 6-man a cappella group hailed as “one of the best pop jazz vocal groups in the world.” The concert supports the nonprofit’s youth program Live! Music & Kids with the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach. 

The a cappella group m-pact is known for their voices making music to the smooth sounds of Sam Smith, the percussive power of Stomp, the funk and groove of Bruno Mars, the sophisticated harmonies of Take 6, and the brass bite of the Michael Bublé Big Band.

Emerging from an age of auto-tune and overproduction, Los Angeles-based ensemble m-pact has cultivated a new generation of ears hungry for the fresh, raw power of nature’s “first instrument” – the human voice. From the beginning, the “pact” of these well-studied masters has been to stay true to music, regardless of style or genre.
