Kamloops a cappella group Slow No Tempo has created new group performances, while not being physically together.

“We can't get together and practice and sing anymore," group member Ryan Noakes says. "This was the best way to keep making music and we thought people would appreciate watching some of the videos too."

The group used to meet at least once a week, but haven’t been able to do so in recent weeks.

Noakes says the members are mostly working at home and they can no longer attend the scheduled gigs thanks to the pandemic.

So now they are sharing video performances online so they can keep doing what they love.

The group has covered songs from the Beach Boys and also did a cover of Bruce Cockburn's classic "Lovers In A Dangerous Time."

Check out their YouTube channel for all their videos. He says they will continue to post new one throughout the pandemic.
