For Naturally 7, the turning point came in the fall of 2007. From quiet success all over Europe they have been propelled onto the world stage, performing before millions of people. As the special guest of internationally acclaimed singer Michael Buble, Naturally 7 have been met with standing ovations nightly in Europe, the U.K., Canada, Australia and the U.S!
The origins of the group date back to New York City in 1999 when Roger Thomas started the group with his brother, Warren, and five other talented singers they had come to know over the years from singing around the city. Having been in and out of several traditional male groups over the years, Roger developed an affinity for a cappella sounds and a unique ability to create distinct harmony arrangements. When invited to sing at a major a cappella competition in New York, they won the competition, moved onto the nationals and took away two more wins.
2008 was nothing short of remarkable with their national U.S. Television debut on Ellen and a Today Show appearance with Michael Bublé. They opened for Jay Leno in Las Vegas and performed on the ‘Tonight Show.’ They were guests on Tavis Smiley, performed at NARM, helped celebrate Quincy Jones’ 75th Birthday in Montreux and greeted a hometown crowd at Madison Square Garden. Following that show, they travelled to London to play the renowned Royal Variety Television show, capping the evening off, by meeting His Royal Highness Prince Charles.
Naturally 7’s most recent CD/DVD ‘VocalPlay’, contains self-penned originals such as “SOS (Anybody Out There),” power ballad “If You Love Me”, the Motown-influenced “Ready or Not”, the Latin 768 and a duet with Michael Bublé on the Dinah Washington classic, “Relax Max”. The bonus DVD includes HD Live material from their Madison Square Garden performance, extensive interviews with each group member as well as their video clips.
In the spring of 2012 Naturally 7 recorded a DVD in Hamburg “All Natural Live”, which will be released this spring. In June the group made a return appearance at the Playboy Jazz Festival at the Hollywood Bowl, receiving a standing ovation from the crowd of 18 thousand!
Today Naturally 7 are Roger Thomas (musical director, arranger, 1st Baritone, Rap), Warren Thomas (percussion, guitar, clarinet, 3rd tenor) Rod Eldridge (1st tenor, scratching, trumpet), Napoleon (Polo) Cummings (4th Tenor, guitar), Dwight Stewart (2nd baritone, vocals, trumpet), Garfield Buckley (2nd Tenor, Harmonica) and “Hops” Hutton (Bass).
With 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.
Their phenomenal talent, coupled with a live show that many consider to be one of the best in the world, has Naturally 7 poised for continued success!
