Our 37th Annual Show!!!
This year’s annual show will once again be a combined show, consisting of both the Rochester Heart of the Hills Barbershop Chorus, as well as the Macomb Guardians of Harmony Chorus. The show will feature the combined chorus presenting favorites from the “Rat Pack” era of the 1950s and ’60s as well as two feature guest quartets Hot Air Buffoons and Right On Q.
Hot Air Buffoons
This Quartet offers a multitude of comedic outtakes and parodies on popular standards. They are known for keeping their audiences in stitches. During the most recent international contest, pitting the Society’s top quartets from around the globe against one another for one of the coveted medals, the Buffoons placed within the Top 20, a very prestigious honor. Our show is also the only Michigan appearance for Hot Air Buffoons during 2012, so don’t miss out on this great chance to see one of the Barbershop Harmony Society’s premier comedy quartets! According to the Buffoons:
Despite our successes in the competition venue, our true love is to entertain. The BUFFOONS have performed on a number of chapter shows (pick any number between 1 and 1,000,000) and if you ask anyone that we have performed for, they will confirm that we are never serious (nor do we want to be). If you have seen us before, we hope that you have enjoyed our performance and have fully recovered from the injuries suffered from “sidesplitting” laughter. But, if you haven’t had the chance to hear the unique style of the HOT AIR BUFFOONS, we encourage you to lock yourself in your storm cellar now, because before long, we’ll be everywhere and you’ll find yourself sucked into our stupid humor and crazy antics. We just ask one thing, DON’T MAKE FUN OF THE FAT GUY!!!!!!!!!!
Right On Q
This Pioneer District Champion quartet hails from the Metro Detroit area with all members of the quartet also maintaining membership with the Macomb Guardians of Harmony chorus. The group’s tenor, Matthew Tipton, serves as the musical director for the Macomb chorus, while bass – Ed Bax, Lead – Ken Klein, and baritone – Rick Anderson are all current or past members of the chorus’s board of directors.
