Tidesmen Chorus is proud to have the following quartets associated with our chorus. We endorse all of them as excellent singers and entertainers, suitable for any occasion...
Four Really Old Guys Singing
When these Four Rather Outstanding Gentlemen Songsters decided to get together to croak out some tunes, they knew they were no longer Tadpoles…
So they tried to Find Rational Old Gems to Sing.
They Fussed Ridiculously Over Great Songs
They finally Found Relatively Obscure Good Shanties
They even looked for Funky Red & Orange Golf Shirts with matching Fashionable Rust and Ochre Garish Socks complemented by Fabulously Rose-coloured Ordinary Green Shoes, but…. to no avail.
So they came to the conclusion that Lead Ray Bertram, Bass Ron Dodd, Baritone Mike Gibbs and Tenor Mac Dallman were simply:
(You will never Forget Readily Our Great Statement)
Rod McDonald (bass), Jay Cousins (tenor), Brian Cullingworth (lead) & Jim Mick (baritone) make up the renewed 'Fouray' quartet. Crowned the 2016 Barbershop Harmony Evergreen Division 1 Seniors Quartet Champions, 'Fouray' is ringing even bigger chords and having more fun than ever!
We enjoy sharing our love of four part harmony with others at special occasions, including birthdays, Valentines, weddings, anniversaries, business functions, etc.
And, be prepared for a 'Fouray' spontaneous outburst of song on your next BC Ferry ride, or at your favorite coffee shop, restaurant or pub!
'Fouray' would be happy to be a part of your special occasion!
Four on the Isle cover much of the island from Victoria to Parksville, but the distance does not stop our desire to sing together. We formed in 2017 in time to sing at our Barbershop Harmony Society compeition and to perform in Tidesmen shows. On the left is Kent Cronin singing baritione, Glenn Harvey - bass, Robert Bradford - lead and Alex Grant -tenor.
Vintage Styleis a new quartet, featuring Alex Grant as tenor, Chris Winslow as lead, Roy Sage as baritone, and Glenn harvey as bass.
Our tenor, Alex, has mastered a large repertoire of songs in his 7 years as a member of the The Tidesmen, and having retired in 2016 now has lots of time to sing, which is definitely one of his favourite hobbies.
Chris as lead, who has been singing barbershop for almost 20 years, gives us our tempo, start and finish.
Roy, singing baritone, sang with the Capital City Barbershop Chorus in Ottawa for a dozen years before retiring to Nanaimo in 2006. He immediately joined the Tidesmen Chorus, and is very happy to be singing with the chorus and especially with a great quartet!
Our bass, Glenn, sang both barbershop and other choral music in Saskatchewan before retiring to Nanaimo in 2006. He soon joined the Tidesmen Chorus, and now provides that essential, solid bass line that is the foundation to all our music.
As barbershoppers say: "Life's a pitch and then you sing!"
We would be delighted to sing for charities, office or private parties, to your sweetheart or other loved one, and indeed anywhere where good a capella singing in close harmony is appreciated.
