I would be nice to have a competing section for barbershoppers who sing with vibrato and fuller voices. The straight tone singing brings the "ring", but it's not as pleasant to some ears as a fuller more relaxed tone. Why don't we hear groups like the Buffalo Bills anymore?
oldschoolsinger (4 months ago)
You just need to go back a bit farther to hear quartets like that. There are so many cookie-cutter quartets now, it's all about screaming and seeing who can sing the highest, loudest, and hold the note the longest. Try listening to The Suntones, The Sidewinders, Bluegrass Student Union, Dealer's Choice, The Boston Common, Second Edition, and The Gas House Gang. If you want to hear texture, artistry, relaxed singing, and naturally ringing chords, listen to some of these guys. Some of the material might be a little dated, but the quality of singing can't be matched.

Ryan This is harmony. This is not barbershop harmony. There's plenty of full-voiced barbershop groups who sing stylistically and can still ring. When done right, nothing beats barbershop. (In my opinion.)
Ryan (8 months ago)
I agree. I love hearing harmony, but I can't take more than a few minutes of barbershop before I have to move on. I think it's because of the lack of texture (vibrato, relaxed tone). Have you ever heard of "Southern Gospel"? I'm not really a big Christian guy, but it matches what you're asking for albeit Christian based. It's basically barbershop harmony with full chest voice singing. Extreme low bass singers, extreme high tenors. Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-R57HfrhvE

Is the winner decided by the best dance steps? They all sound identical to me.
oldschoolsinger (4 months ago)
Hahahahaha you're absolutely right. See my reply to Trudbol

This is like metal for old people. It was new and fresh when it started. But they all sound the same these days, and fans are too nostalgic to realize that.

Kind of funny how if main street would have "settled for a 94. they would have won lol
Tom Campbell (2 years ago)
I love the Squeezies. I like 'em all. In the second convention in 1940, Herbert Lehman, governor of New York, was a judge along with noted musicologist Sigmund Spaeth. Lehman leans over and says "Gee, Sig. I don't know who to vote for. They all sound pretty good to me." p.s. Contest was won by a New York city quartet, the Flatfoot Four.

Jeanne Alexander (2 years ago)
What a hard decision and I am very partial to the Stockholm fellas, Lemon Squeezy and Main Street....so glad I an not a judge.
Nathan Grosh (2 years ago)
How do they decide the order of performances? Is it by score

Sean Lubbers (2 years ago)
+Sam Williams that's unfortunate I love them. What about a mighty wind?
Sam Williams (2 years ago)
They stopped competing, they were a long-distance quartet.
Toby Reed (2 years ago)
No A Mighty Wind this year?
Sam Williams (2 years ago)
I believe they've just taken a year out and should be back next year!
Jonathon Edwards (2 years ago)
Seems like anybody can win this. Forefront, Main Street & Lemon Squeezy might be the favorites, but I like Signature. Really I like then all!
Dok Eleswyr (2 years ago)
So im kind of new, but is instant classic like unable to win 2 times in a row or something? and thats why theyre not in finals?

+BHS2011able BHS contest rules, Article 1, Section A, rule 6: a. Not Eligible to Compete: Except in division contests, championship quartets of other years will not be eligible to compete again for that championship. b. Forming New Quartet: This rule will not be construed to prohibit the organization and entry of a new quartet of not more than two members of the same championship quartet, provided entry is made under a different name. http://www.barbershop.org/files/documents/contestandjudging/CJBook-03%20Contest%20Rules.pdf
Nick Serrecchia (2 years ago)
You need to have a different name, though. Unless you have an example of a quartet winning more than once, I'm going to keep with my initial response. One quartet, one win.
Nick Serrecchia (2 years ago)
A quartet can only ever win internationals once
td904587 (2 years ago)
yeah, once your quartet wins, you're not allowed to compete again
clemsonguy823 (2 years ago)
Let's go Main Street!!!
guibox3 (2 years ago)
Hmm...though I'm leaning towards Stockholm Syndrome (probably the best blend out of all of them) and After Hours...I have to go with Tony D and Main Street. :)
