If you are looking for entertainment that is a bit different from the every day, then Generations can fill that bill. We have almost 150 years experience singing Barbershop Harmony (we all started very young). With over 40 songs in our repertoire plus over a dozen Holiday Songs, we can easily fill a one hour show. Our songs selections are popular tunes from the 1890's to the 1960's. We always include a Sing-A-Long with the audience because we believe in community singing. It brightens everyones day when they can sing familiar songs as they bring back fond memories. We have numerous outfits that we can wear, but the favorite is the old fashion red/white striped jackets with the straw hats. So whether you are looking for someone to sing the National Anthem at a sporting event, or a full show at a Senior Center, we can handle that. We look forward to working with your next show request.

What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 30 - 120 minutes
We have different outfits depending on the needs of the client. Our most requested outfit is the traditional Red & White Striped Jacket with red bowtie and straw hat. We have a repertoire of about 40 songs and will choose the songs that best fit the audience. We talk about the songs that we are going to sing and give a little history on them. We always try to include a "sing-a-long" at some point during the performance. We might even tell a joke or two. At the end of our show we tend to stick around for a little bit and talk with our audience members on a one to one basis. They all seem to have a story to share about seeing a Barbershop Quartet or haveing a family member that once sang Barbershop Harmony. We are always amazed at the number of people who sing along with us during the show.
We can sing just about anywhere. Strolling or on a stage. If we are playing a large room with a big audience, we usually need a sound system with 2 multi-directional microphones. If you cannot supply a sound system, we can provide one at an additional charge.
