The following is some information about our guest quartet, The Humdingers.

The Humdingers Barbershop Quartet

The Humdingers have been entertaining audiences for almost 40 years. Collectively, they bring to the stage over 100 years of quartet experience and have performed throughout North America and several foreign countries. They are truly unique, as no other barbershop quartet in the world performs with the antique Deagan Organ Chimes along with original tap dance and straw-hat routines.  

The quartet just performed in the Barbershop Harmony Society’s Mid-Winter competition in Tucson, Arizona.  They wowed the crowd with their music and comedy routines. This may be the best feature quartet that The Southern Gentlemen Barbershop Chorus has ever had on the annual show.  They are very entertaining and would be great for all family members to see and hear.
