Tidesmen Chorus Quartets

The Barbershop Harmony Society Nanaimo is proud to have the following quartets associated with our chapter.  We endorse them as excellent singers and entertainers, suitable for any occasion...

Vintage Style

Great style from our vintage members!

Vintage Style

These four gentlemen decided on the name “VINTAGE STYLE” because they are all of a certain vintage! And they define “vintage” as mature and classic!

Vintage Style has been singing together for a few years and enjoy making gentle harmony in a variety of musical styles.  The quartet has a reputation for their solid harmonies and light hearted parodies and comedy pieces.

Left to Right:  Colin Payne (baritone), Glenn Harvey (bass), Mike Patterson (lead), and Alex Grant (tenor).   

VINTAGE STYLE is available for special occasions by contacting Glenn at

Charisma Bypass

Music Makes My Heart Sing

Charisma Bypass
Music Makes My Heart Sing is the motto of these four guys who have as much fun as their audience and will sing for anyone who will listen.

Their repertoire includes mostly great 50s & 60s numbers, along with a variety of ballads, oldies, and traditional Barbershop tunes.  Their music and antics will keep you more than entertained.

'Four' most occasions, eh?

Jay Cousins, Brian Cullingworth, Jim Mick, and Barry Jones created Fouray in the fall of 2010. Each having sung with other quartets for over 15 years, they joined forces to sing barbershop music and compete within the Barbershop Harmony Society, winning their division’s Seniors Quartet Championship in 2011. In May 2015 Barry retired, and the young whippersnapper, Rod McDonald, close to 55 years old (the magic age to become a "senior" within the Barbershop Society), auditioned and passed to join the three older guys.

It's been a nonstop roller-coaster ride since then, expanding from competitions to more public venue performances, including birthdays, anniversaries, singing Valentines, and even a jingle for a TV advertising video. Fouray was again crowned Seniors Quartet Champions within their division in 2016 and 2018, and also created a sixteen-song CD. Just prior to 2019 Covid shutdown Fouray participated in very successful show performances at Courtenay’s Sid Williams Theatre and at Nanaimo’s Port Theatre. 

Fast forward to 2023: James Chappell has replaced Rod to take the bass part, and baritone Don Dickson has replaced Jim. Fouray has moved beyond the barbershop genre and added                modern a capella arrangements from the Four Tops, the Dave Clark 5, Uncle Kracker, The Eagles
and the Four Lads, to name a few.


We look forward to performing for you at your next occasion. Just contact us at:

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 Roy Sage and Tenor Mac Dallman were simply:
(You will never Forget Readily Our Great Statement)

For your Toadal enjoyment….

Four Really Old Guys Singing!!
