Hailed as "one of the best pop-jazz vocal groups in the world" by The San Francisco Chronicle, m-pact is respected worldwide as a cutting edge trailblazer in the realm of vocal music.

Over the last 12 years, their signature sound has been used in both TV themes and animated Disney feature films, and is enjoyed on syndicated radio worldwide.

Around the globe, mesmerized audiences buzz from the thrill of m-pact's vocal acrobatics, innovative orchestrations, and commanding yet authentic stage presence. Unknowing ears of all ages come expecting entertainment but leave enriched from an indescribable experience.
