“The Tecumseh Corn Festival has been proud to bring names like the Rankin Family, Natalie MacMaster, Hedley, Finger Eleven, Theory Of A Deadman, Our Lady Peace, The Tea Party, and Down With Webster in recent past. So we are proud to announce that Eh440 will headline our stage on Friday night and back by popular demand, Greatest Hits Live will rock through the ages on Saturday night.” says Corn Festival Committee Chair, David Lozinsky.
Eh440 started harmonizing together in 2012. Using just their voices, this Toronto-based acappella group has wow'd audiences across the USA, Canada, and Europe. On the heels of their award-winning 2014 debut release Turn Me Up, they're starting to record their next full-length album to be dropped in September of this year. Eh440 is a mix of 5 people from 5 very different backgrounds and musical genres. Joe's been a low bass singer his entire life, Luke's an urban beatboxer, Janet identifies as a country/pop singer, Stacey's soul/pop, and Jake likes contemporary vocal / pop music. Together they form "an unforgettable combination of crazy beatboxing, sassy rapping, killer harmonies, and fresh, urban, RnB-influenced compositions". We are very excited to have Eh440 at the Tecumseh Corn Festival this year!
