Prime Time

Bay Area - 7 Voices - Much Music

Prime Time is an award-winning jazz-centered contemporary a cappella group from the California Bay Area which specializes in heartfelt singing, exquisite musicianship, and an approachable, honest performance style. Separately, the singers have decades of experience spanning multiple styles and cultures. Together, we have one goal - to let the music shine in and through us, as we reach out to touch, inspire, and entertain everyone who hears us.

Welcome Colleen Mahal and John Kelley

Prime Time is pleased to be back to full strength as a six part group, and we couldn't be happier with our new recruits.

Colleen is actually a pro singer, who gigs constantly with rock and blues bands.  She brings some awesome performance moxie and a sweet high, seemingly endless and versatile top soprano sound that fits so well with Miya and Caia.  

John is also a tremendously accomplished singer, arranger, and performer, having sung with Red, Hot and Blue and the Whiffenpoofs at Yale (along with John Rae-Grant), and for many years as both bass and alto in the Grace Cathedral Choir.  He now splits the difference between his two parts, covering the huge middle between Dan's tenor and John R-G's bass.  

We were very excited to premier the new group with four sings at Dan's High School Music night in December.
