We are a working group of barbershop singers in New Orleans, in our 20s - 40s, currently seeking to recruit a few new singers. We gig weekly, both private and public events, plus have a regular rehearsal night every week. We rehearse with a larger group 4 - 10 people typically, and perform both as 4 and multiples of 4. Yes, we do have reoccurring paying gigs, but note, this is a growing project, you won't pay your bills with it just yet. What you will get is a little extra money, a creative singing outlet, opportunity to grow as a singer/musician, and to make some good loyal friends. Plus, we do try to get out and busk on sidewalk in the Quarter, when we can. Sometimes we can make a decent buck on tips. We are on the cusp of bigger things though, gig offers at bigger, better paying venues and out of town travel. This is the perfect time to get in, before things starting moving too fast.
We welcome all who are interested. Really. We are majority male, but open to men, women, or however you might identify. All levels of musician welcome, amateur to pro. We have ways to learn and teach songs regardless. For some, singing is just great therapy. We are waiters, teachers, real estate agents, students, and more, on top of being singers. That being said, there is a preference to singers who are familiar with music and even more so to those who can read. Just meaning, we can get you gigging faster that way, but we still welcome you regardless of your level.
Please shoot us an email, telling us who you are, what you do, what you sing. Really anything relative to this post. We shall go from there!
