Our Quartets

Do you need a barbershop quartet to entertain in Melbourne or even further afield?

The Melbournaires are proud to host several barbershop quartets which are often featured in Melbournaires performances, and perform on their own for private parties, social and business events, and other special occasions as well as competing in BHA contests. Our quartets are:

  • Boardwalk - a quartet with a growing repertoire
  • Sound Investment - a talented new group
  • Sound Check - reborn with a new line-up
  • Skeeters - a mixed quartet
  • Scallywags - a new group
  • Salt - a gospel quartet
  • Harmonic Motion
  • Lords of the Ring
  • and others which perform occasionally or are in the making...

Information about each of our quartets and their contact details can be found below. Consider hiring a Barbershop Quartet to provide entertainment at your next special event. They're guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser, and you can rest assured that they'll provide quality entertainment your whole family can enjoy.

Quartet membership

Singing in a quartet is one of life's greatest pleasures. Would you believe we've known members who have forgone a football match just to spend more time in a musical foursome! It's a totally different experience from singing in a chorus - the same music, but no safety net! What's more, you'll find that you have more in common with the other three guys than matching socks; the experiences you share while interpreting a song lyric, tuning the chords to perfection, and giving all during a performance will form a bond of friendship and mutual respect that knows no equal.

Boardwalk
Feedback from the bride at a wedding we sang at this month  (March 2017). This included 2 requested songs we had not sung before:
"You gave such a gorgeous performance and it was exactly as we hoped. Our guests gave us great feedback on you and really loved the ambiance you created!"
Featuring (L to R) Richard Fisher (Baritone), John Howell (Bass), Mark Unwin (Lead) and Lecky Webster (Tenor). The photo was taken at the Violet Diamond Charity Gala Ball in May, 2015. The quartet performs in many gigs each year on Radio, TV, at parties, in shows, in advertisements and at private events and anniversaries.

Skeeters

Skeeters
Skeeters is the first mixed quartet in our club and was formed in 2016 to compete at the BHA 2016 Mixed Quartet contest - we are really pleased with our 4th place result on the regional contest after a very short time together.

Members of Skeeters come from a large variety of musical background: from experienced Barbershopper to new Acappella singer; from international singing contest semi-finalist to music teacher. One thing we have in common is the passion for singing and to entertain our audiences.

Skeeters is in recess at the moment.
