Review: "Marquee Five: Manhattan Transfer for the New Millennium?" by Stephen Hanks, Times Square Chronicles

...on November 7, I heard the two-year old Marquee Five perform a show called “8-Track Throwback,” a five-part harmony homage to the music of the 1960s and ‘70s. In Marquee Five, I knew I’d found my Manhattan Transfer for the new millennium...“Marquee” is the appropriate moniker for this group of smooth, synchronized and powerful singers who seamlessly blend together for a magical musical brew. There’s little doubt their names will be showcased above a theater entrance somewhere very soon.
