FEATURED GUEST QUARTETS
Vintage Mix and Newfangled Four
We are Vintage Mix located in the Milwaukee area. Our genre of music includes the Standards, Hymns, Show Tunes and Barbershop in addition to a mix of music in between. It is our hope and desire to bring back a focus on harmony and the great music of the past. Our musical journey started with "The Sound of Music" sung at a local talent show. It was then and there that we realized that there was something special in the mix. We have continued to sing together and pursue opportunities to sing together as they become available.We have a unique affinity in that we are quadruplets. That's
the "Q" in QVintageMix. We all enjoy the same music and blend harmony together as only siblings can. Please check out our video(s) available on YouTube (QVintageMix) or sign up for our mailing list to keep up with what Vintage Mix is doing.
The Newfangled Four is a barbershop quartet based in sunny Southern California. Formed
over two years ago, this foursome quickly bonded through their involvements with the
Westminster Chorus and Masters of Harmony, two well-renowned choruses in the
Barbershop Harmony Society. Each with their own levels of musical and barbershop
experience, it didn't take long for this quartet to start building a repertoire of challenging,
yet exciting arrangements. The quartet was fortunate enough to become the 2013
International Collegiate Barbershop Quartet Champions and the 2013 Far Western District
Quartet Champions. In 2014, they received the Dealer's Choice Award for being the highest
scoring debut quartet of the year, and in July 2015, placed 14th in the International Quartet
Contest. These guys are always looking to entertain audiences of all kinds. They have
entertained in venues as large as Basketball Arenas and as small as private birthday parties
and they are constantly striving to be the next best thing!
Quorum was formed and became an official Barbershop Harmony Society Quartet in 2014.
Members include Nick Gordon-Baritone, Chris Vaughn-Lead, Gary Lewis-Bass and Puck
Ross-Tenor. Quorum finished in 7th place in the Barbershop Harmony Foundation’s
International Quartet Contest in Nashville in July 2016. Gary Lewis (bass) has won gold
three times in his barbershop career – first as the tenor of The Real Deal, winners of the
Society’s MBNA Collegiate Quartet Contest in 1994 then as tenor with 2000
Champions, Platinum and again in 2007 as the baritone with Max Q. Gary, who is also the
Director of the Men of Independence, was the first person to win a collegiate gold medal
and go on to win SPEBSQSA International gold. He is also the only tenor/baritone double
gold medalist. Chris Vaughn (lead) won international gold as a member of Gotcha in the
SPEBSQSA 2004 competition in Louisville, Kentucky. Nick Gordon (baritone) won his first
international gold medal as a member of Prestige, the 2011 International Collegiate
Barbershop Quartet champions. Jacob “Puck” Ross (tenor) won gold in the Johnny
Appleseed District’s quartet competition in 2006 as a member of The Allies.
