Promotional example:
Delight your family and friends with a concert from Smorgaschord! This fun, energetic, award-winning vocal band is happy to entertain at your personal or corporate event. From ABBA to the Zombies, from Chicago to Pharrell, Smorgaschord performs six-part harmonies and vocal percussion "a cappella" (without instruments). You may have seen them singing at Mountain View's Thursday Night Live, the Palo Alto Farmer's Market, or the 4th of July parade in Redwood City. Private events have included weddings, house concerts, summer pool parties, and block parties. Bringing an engaging mix of favorite songs, they have something guaranteed to make you smile.

Cafe example:
Enjoy the wide-ranging styling of Smorgaschord, six singers who combine soaring solos with tight harmonies and vocal percussion. This fun, energetic, award-winning vocal band has been featured at summer festivals from Burlingame to Mountain View and at block parties around the peninsula. With an engaging mix of favorite songs, from ABBA to the Zombies, from Chicago to Pharrell, the three women and three men of Smorgaschord have a song guaranteed to make you smile. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

Humor example:
Smorgaschord draws its name from ancient runic manuscripts of abundant food and music, the combination of which may lead to harmonic digestion. Smorgaschord entertains at events around the Peninsula, including summer festivals, coffee shops, bars, and occasionally, the checkout line of supermarkets. We could be right behind you in line. Look for the shoppers with a wide variety of musical styles and poorly-balanced nutritional choices. Hey, where did you find that bacon-flavored chocolate?
