Ball in the House set to perform in Farmington

Farmington — A cappella group Ball in the House is set to perform at Farmington’s Summer Concert Series, on Aug. 18.

The instrument-less Boston-based R&B group has several claims to fame, including opening for acts that include the Beach Boys, The Jonas Brothers, the Temptations, Jessica Simpson, Gladys Knight, and many more. It has also been the voice in commercials for Cool Whip and wrote and performed the jingle for Amazon’s Prime Day.


Band members are Kevin Cincotta-Guest, Wallace Thomas, Montario “Monty” Hill, Dave Guisti, and Jon Ryan.

The group has appeared on the TODAY Show, after which host Meredith Viera said, “Very smooth! Crowd loved it!”


It has also performed on The Daily Buzz, and performs live approximately 200 times per year.

The group has an impressive set of audio and video clips on its website, including a cover of “The Middle,” and the video for their original hit, “Ordinary Day,” and more.

“Ordinary Day” received this review from the Recorded A Capella Review Board (RARB) in 2021:

“‘Music that’ll move ya’ - That’s what Ball in the House promises and provides in its new original single, Ordinary Day, a powerful song written and arranged by soloist Wallace Thomas. Whether it’s the lyrics, singing, or both that move you, you will feel something, if not everything, listening to the blues-style sermon by this Boston-based group.”

On Aug. 25, the concert series continues with unique performer Jester Jim, who promises fun for the whole family.

“This is not your ordinary juggling show!” reads his website. “With a trunk full of props and a looping machine, Jester Jim takes the stage and starts his show. Young and old will be glued to his every sound as he performs his amazing beatbox intro.”

The concerts begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Town Hall Complex on Monteith Drive. For more information, visit, or
