BIO

Pitches Be Crazy (also known as PBC) is a 6 person, all vocal cover band based out of the Washington, D.C. area.  Using no instruments or backing music, PBC creates all of the music vocally with the use of electronic effects processors to enhance the product.  Although the music is created solely by the vocalist's voices, the use of effects processors creates a full-instrument band sound.  With heavy percussion and sub-harmonic bass, PBC creates music similar to any other full-instrument band. 

 

PBC was originally conceived in February 2013. PBC as it is known today, was solidified in November of the same year. 

 

Because of the diversity and backgrounds of the members, R&B and hip-hop artists from the 1970s thru 1990s heavily influence the music selection covered by the band.  The goal of PBC in live performances is to create a "party" like atmosphere with recognizable, up-tempo, high-energy music.

 

The band legitimized itself as a small business in the state of Virginia as "Pitches Be Crazy, LLC" in August 2014 with the majority of live performances in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia.

 

Today, PBC continues to perform at live shows, and produces their own professionally produced music that is available on all major digital outlets.

 

Genre:  R&B, Hip-Hop, Rap, Funk, Disco, Soul, Pop

Style:  A cappella

Audience Demographic: All ages (PBC does have some adult content music that is performed only for audiences and venues 18+)

Awards:  2019 DC Washington Area Music (WAMMIE) Award Winners, 2018 Baltimore Sound Off Live! 1st Place Champions, National Cherry Blossom Competition (Finalist), National Harmony Sweepstakes Competition (Two time Mid-Atlantic Regional Semi-Finalist), 2016 MusiCom Champions
