Act Profile

BU Acapella

BU Acapella were formed in July 2017 by Nic Chiappetta (All Together Now Series 2 & Joe Lycetts got your back) for the SkyOne series, Sing: Ultimate A cappella, hosted by Cat Deeley.

Since appearing on the program they have performed their shows in some of the most exclusive venues around London, such as Old Billingsgate, The Other Palace, Above the Arts, Pizza Express Live and Live at Zedel.

The style of BU Acapella is very eclectic, arranging everything from your favourite classic hits from the 80s/90s, to current chart hits. Due to the members of Belt Up all being trained at drama schools across London, such as The Royal Academy of Music, Sylvia Young, The Brit school etc their shows are entertaining, with many of their arrangements have a playful and often comedic edge.
The members of Belt Up include:
Wallis McDowall (Joe Lycetts got your back), Lara de Belder (Channel 5's comedy Bigmouths, The Alan Titmarsh Show) , Brian Raftery, Ed Court and Macaulay Nicholson.

"BU Acapella have worked shows for me on several occasions over the last 18 months. From West End cabarets, to their own headline sets and pop up shows. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Their creativity, professionalism, stage presence and dependability are second to none and they always deliver an energetic, varied and accurately performed program. I would not, and do not hesitate to invite them to my events to perform, and would welcome any questions you may have on working with them."
