What to Expect
Every venue, every performance opportunity is a new and unique chance to connect in some way (big or small) with an audience. We work closely with event planners to make that connection as easy and successful as possible so that audiences walk away feeling they have not only been entertained, but genuinely cared about.
Drive is the culmination of four musical journeys, and also just the beginning. Formed in 2016, each of its founding members spent years loving, listening to, and performing a wide variety of vocal music. After capturing the Northeastern District Barbershop Harmony Society Quartet Championship their first year in existence, they have been perennial representatives and quarterfinalists in the International Quartet Contest.
Sharing a common love of stellar intonation, lyric expression, and expanded, ensemble sound, Josh, Jordan, Dan, and Ray knew these fundamentals could allow a group to jump head-first into any piece that excited or moved its singers, regardless of style or genre. In 2019, they earned the honor of becoming the Harmony Sweepstakes Boston Regional Champions and International Finalists.
A favorite with performing venues and organizations, Drive has also helped developed in-house community music programs with venues such as Mechanics Hall in Worcester, MA and Greater Good Imperial Brewing Company. With a unique blend of the vocal skills, techniques, and artistry needed for the group sound, as well as the openness, collaborative spirit, and passion needed to ignite and sustain the creative spark, they and their audiences are discovering that the Drive has just begun…
Additional Booking Notes
We are always happy to perform without amplification if the venue/event allows for it, and here are our options for amplification if required:
For all small to mid-sized venues without sound systems: we are able to provide our own compact sound system including wireless microphones and amplification (as long as there is power within an extension-cord's reach).
For larger venues with sound systems: four hand-held mics or a pair of small diaphragm cardioid condenser mics on a stereo bar are preferred, as well as at least one monitor (two preferred).
