MO5AIC, the all-vocal quintet, gained national exposure on “America’s Got Talent” and skyrocketed to success.
Josh Huslig, MO5AIC founding member, realized that a person’s voice could copy musical sounds and formed MO5AIC A Cappella.
Jake Moulton joined Josh as part of the duet of musical sounds.
Josh is the vocal percussionist with his beat box. He creates the sounds of drums and his mouth makes most “stage noises” as he calls them.
“Stage noises” are the sounds of Josh and Jake using their voices as musical instruments.
The audience enters the showroom, looks at the stage and wonders, “Where are the musical instruments?”
The three singers Heath Burgett, Corwin Hodge and Roopak Ahuja joined Josh and Jake for a fun filled show.
It was exciting to hear the band’s sounds created as we watched.
This is an art to capture the sound of a live band.
It takes years of practice to reach this point.
The music sounded the same as the bands that play with musical instruments.
Their all-vocal group is different.
MO5AIC kept up their lively beat while moving around the stage and included the audience throughout the show.
The personal attention the group gave the audience was appreciated.
MO5AIC appeared on America’s Got Talent as the first group to create music without instruments.

Among the celebrities I interviewed along the red carpet was Anthony Cools, the adult hypnotist (Paris). After appearing eight years, he recently signed a new contract until 2017.
Anthony explained, “My act is called Uncensored, we keep it a heavy “R” rated. I walk to the line, straddled the line and teetered over it sometimes. We keep it where people walk out saying that was a fun show.
My show changes every night. I never know what is going to happen.
There are some signature bits I do every show; for example, I tell people they are auditioning for a X-rated film with their chair. The show always finishes with the big “O”, not the tire type.”
You will notice her in a crowd. Sandy Anderson looks like Dolly Parton and when she begins singing her impressions surprise the audience.
The public loves their stars. Whenever there is a “look alike”, they feel good hearing the songs and watching the impressions. The show is a good experience.
Sandy has a two-hour act singing Dolly’s greatest hits. She toured Thailand, Malaysia, Australia, Norway and many other countries.
