Seattle Barbershop Quartets
The Country Squires are one of the premier barbershop quartets in the Pacific Northwest. In 2000-2001 they were the Evergreen District Senior Champions, besting over 100 quartets from Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, British Columbia, and Alberta. We have a large repertoire and can tailor a program to your needs. Our specialties are Irish, oldies, 40's, patriotic, and gospel music as well as the standards of the barbershop repertoire. We love to perform!
4.0 combines the classically trained voices of brothers Gavin and Tyson Jensen , on lead and bass, with the veteran barbershop experience of both Ira Allen on baritone and Ted Chamberlain on tenor, resulting in a vibrant exciting sound. In April 2013 the quartet placed first at the Evergreen District Preliminary Contest and went on to represent the Evergreen District at the International Barbershop Quartet Contest in Toronto.
Winners of the Evergreen District competition in Spokane and the Seniors International competition in Albuquerque, NM, Cheers! performs in the barbershop style at a wide variety of functions from banquets to birthdays and conventions to holiday parties. We have entertained in Sweden, Finland, Germany, New Zealand, Russia, for Seattle Mariners games, Boeing, Microsoft and too many other public and private events to count. Our repertoire includes gospel, doo-wop, popular, traditional barbershop, Christmas and patriotic. Combined we have over 150 years of quartet experience-there's nothing we'd rather do. We regularly perform around the Pacific Northwest and would love to be a part of your event!
The Bellevue Square quartet features a repertoire of songs and patter for all ages. Mostly from the Issaquah area, we have been together as a quartet for almost a year. We've competed in both area (Puget Sound) and regional (Pacific Northwest) competitions, placing in the top 20. Although our quartet is young our members have a combined 100 years experience singing barbershop.
