Home Free adds matinee show Feb. 14 at CPAC
Home Free, the vocal band that won "The Sing-Off" a capella group competition on NBC TV last month, has added a second show for its Valentine's Day performance at the Central Performing Arts Center (CPAC) in DeWitt.

Tickets for the Feb. 14, 7:30 performance sold out before Christmas as the five- man vocal group, which sings without instrumental accompaniment, using only their voices and microphones, moved steadily through the competition toward the show's finale Dec. 23.

The CPAC board has been successful in booking Home Free for a second show, which will be presented at 3 p.m. in the auditorium at Central Community High School.

"Although it is a good thing for CPAC performances to sell out, we know a lot of people were disappointed the tickets went so fast," said Vanessa McNeely, CPAC events coordinator.

"We hope the additional show will help accommodate many of the center's regular attendees."

Tickets went on sale at DeWitt City Hall and Friday, Jan. 10.

The group, which made its mark as "The Sing-Off's" first country music competitor, hails from Minnesota and will begin a national 35-city tour with other "Sing-Off" contestants shortly after the DeWitt appearance.

You can catch them Monday, Jan. 13, on the Today show.
