Generations Quartet is fantastic. They are able to entertain all age groups and are true professionals. I would recommend them highly for any event.
Response from Generations Quartet:
It is a great honor to be able to sing to and entertain so many wonderful people
over the course of my career. I look forward to many more!
yours in song, Bill.
Bill was very professional from day one. He is a consumate performer and class act. Just what I wanted for my very vibrant and energetic mom celebrating her 88 birthday.
A very nice guy but needs to change his name. We expected a quartet.
Absolutely wonderful! They exceeded our expectations. Terrific singing. Friendly people. Highly recommend!
Response from Generations Quartet:
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
It was a joy singing for Laura and your whole family & friends.
Best 400 mile round trip I've ever driven!
Yours in song, Bill & Generations Barbershop Quartet

What to Expect
Since every performance is unique, we will work with you to coordinate the performance with your needs. However, here's a sample of our performances.
We have different outfits depending on the needs of the client. Our most requested outfit is the traditional Red & White Striped Jacket with red bow tie and straw hat, as seen in many of our photos.
(We also have striped shirts or vests as options on request.)
We have a repertoire of about 40 songs, and will work with you to choose the songs that best fit who we are singing to. Then before our performance, we prepare "the plan" - a song list for your performance.
During the show. we will talk about the songs that we are going to sing and give a little history on them. We always try to include one or more "sing-a-long" songs at some point during the performance. (One note - we have sung at both elementary schools and Senior Centers, so we change our sing-a-long songs to match the ages of our audience!) And we are always amazed at the number of people who sing along with us!
We can also do a short section of a song, explaining each of our four harmony parts (which is the basis of acapella, barbershop harmony singing). Finally, we'll blow the pitch-pipe for the starting note, and then sing the entire song in our four part harmony! Priceless for newcomers to this style of music! Lets not forget our personalities - we might even tell a joke or two!
At the end of our show, schedule permitting, we tend to stick around for a bit and talk with the audience members on a one to one basis. People we meet and sing to all seem to have a story to share about seeing a Barbershop Quartet, or have a family member that once sang Barbershop Harmony ! And we can share our experiences, too !
If you are looking for entertainment that is a bit different from the every day, then Generations can fill that bill. Here's a short summary of who we are, and what we do - just let us help you!
As of Sept 30, 2019,
We are an acapella Barbershop singing type quartet.
We have a total of over 178 years of 4 part harmony singing in various music styles !
Our ages total up to 298 years! (we all started very young) !
And best - we are an active quartet throughout the year, and can sing for you on a weekday or weekend, Both Day Or Night!
With approximately 40 songs in our repertoire (holiday songs not included), we can easily fill a one hour show. The majority of our songs are popular tunes from the 1890's to the 1960's (don't forget to see our list of songs or "set list"), and we can find many other requested songs in our Barbershop Society's reference library! And we always try to included one or more Sing-A-Long songs with the audience. This brightens their day as we'all sing familiar songs, bringing back many fond individual memories, and to once again enjoy community singing among all of us!
We have three main outfits - one with our red and white striped blazers, one with our red and white striped short sleeved shirts, and one with our red and white striped vests. Don't forget our straw hats we normally wear with our outfits. For some specific events, such as wakes and funerals, we will coordinate our attire with you. Check Out Our Photos in our profile :-) !
Where do we sing? We will sing (for example) either inside or outside, at home or work, at Senior Centers, or function halls. We will sing for various events, such as birthdays, anniversaries, prposal and wedding functions, sporting events (eg, the National Anthem), or a full show. In short, we can definitely help you out! Just contact us so we can coordinate details of the your event and how we can help.
We look forward to working with your next show request!
Can We Sing For You??
Additional Booking Notes
We can sing just about anywhere, either strolling or on a stage.
If we are performing in 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.
However, we normally do not need a sound system when singing in either a smaller room (or a home, or backyard, or strolling to sing at various tables), or an area with good acoustics.
