We posted on our facebook page. I know its been a while. Thats what you get when you dont sit down to a PC for a few months. We have been busy. If you have seen Mr. Matthew “BarbershopMe” Gorman flying around the US to get his fix of barbershop related goods, then congratulations. I have made some great friends along the way and finally got to meet a few people who I thought only existed on the internet.
First, a big thanks to Gary Plaag. Coolest barbershopper on the planet. The most humble man you will meet in our circles. He does so much, doesnt get enough thanks, selflessly volunteers his time all for the greater good of our hobby. Kudos Gary, thanks for all you do, have done, and all the endless hours you have spend supporting “us”.
Second, to the Carolina Vocal Express and Heart of Carolina Chorus, thanks for putting up with my attendance, my absence and all thats in between. Look forward to making music with you every week/month.
The Good Old Days Quartet took up most of my time in Roanoke, Va at the Southern Division contest of the M-AD. They are currently having a fundraising campaign to bring their underfunded broke New York selves to #BHSLV so make sure to click, and donate and get some goodies here – https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-good-old-days-goes-to-las-vegas

I was able to go to a show in my own state that had an awesome top 20 quartet – Instant Classic (http://www.harmonize.com/instantclassic/) There is tons of great videos on our YouTube Page of their performance. Thanks to the Cape Fear Chordsmen for the great show, youth festival and awesome afterglow!
I also met Monorail Four from Alexandria (facebook friendships are now official for all four), I sang as a mic-rester with Mike Kelly and Richard Llewellyn(sp), I met THE Bill Colosimo. He didn’t want to get his picture taken with me, but we will work on that folks.
Basically we have the best hobby in the world and you shouldn’t go a day without appreciating that to its fullest deserved space in the universe. We can communicate on the web, meet each other in person, and because of this shared love we have for a 4 part music that has killer harmonies, we are all accepted. More pictures to come from my mobile.
Love you all and in harmony we trust,
