Name of the A cappella group at Center Camp?

Anyone know of the name / website / contact info of the A cappella group that played either Tuesday or Wednesday morning at Center Camp? They had four members and finished their set with "Bohemian Rhapsody." They were killer and I would love to know where else they perform. Thanks.

I am sorry I was not clearer - an "A cappella" group is one that plays without instruments - not the actual name of the group. There are multiple spellings of this term which also may be leading to some confusion.

I spoke with one of the singers at the end of their performance and they told me their name but for the life of me I cannot remember it. The name was something like "Special Grind".

Major, Acaplaya are just singers. They don't play instruments.
They had many songs that were BM and Playa related. 8) 8) 8)

ibdave: I read your first post too fast. I read it as "what is acaplaya" My error - sorry 'bout that.

Thanks for the replies but I don't think they are the ones I am looking for. The folks I heard sing had a name based on coffee: "Special Grind", "Special Blend" something like that.
