As in the wonderful Meredith Willson musical, The Music Man, every once in a while four men get together and find that they are Lead, Tenor, Bass, and Baritone and can make harmony together. Obviously the chance of this happening is greater in a group of men who like to sing than in the general population. Over the past five decades quartets have come and gone in this chapter, currently there are three active quartets - officially registered with the Barbershop Harmony Society - available for booking for community singing engagements.

Homeward Bound 

Homeward Bound is a decades-old quartet that has morphed with the times, once being known as Charley’s Angels, when Charley Paddock was the Lead. They sing classic barbershop songs as well as gospel music. The quartet features Tenor - Mark Yeokum, an airline pilot, Bass – Alex Tate a clothier, Lead - Carl Turlin a science teacher, and Baritone – Don Fuson, a communications consultant

Pryme Tyme


Pryme Tyme is a quartet formed in 1987 and still singing regularly in the community and at chapter functions, finding an especial challenge in singing to audiences of older people who remember the songs of their younger days. They call themselves a ‘daytime quartet’ because all of the members are retired and available to perform during the day. The quartet members are: Tenor - Lee Fisher, Leads - Ken Jackson, a grocer, and Ben Stephenson, an engineer, who alternate in this part, also an engineer, Bass – Gary Talbert, an insurance representative, and Baritone - Bob Johnson, yet another engineer.

The School Board


The School Board is a quartet that originated in the 1960s and, over the years, has changed its name and singers several times. In the early 1970s this quartet sang in The Music Man in Theater in the Park in Johnson County, and later toured Europe in this same production. ‘The School Board’ of Meredith Willson’s Music Man was composed of the owner of a livery stable, a grocer, a banker, and a River City businessman. The 2009 School Board quartet is composed of: Tenor – Wendell Shaffer, Lead – Matthew Soule, a safety director, Bass – Danny Hewett, and Baritone - Larry Booker, a small business owner.
