A Lovely Evening of Music and Laughter

Last Friday, October 24, 2014, my husband and I attended a production of “The Lads of Enchantment”, a local barbershop quartet chorus.  They performed for 45 minutes and did an admirable job of telling the story of a man’s Love through the years with songs from many eras and performers. Some of the songs included were Hello Mary Lou originally by Ricky Nelson, Silhouettes originally performed by The Rads (but I remember it done by Herman’s Hermits as well as Andy Griffith’s spoof), Mood Indigo by Duke Ellington, For the Longest Time by Billy Joel, Love Me Tender (an Elvis favorite) and ending with Shenandoah.  Added in the mix of the story was a little 6 year old girl who appeared at the beginning and at the end who garnered a lot of applause herself.

There were four featured quartets in the Chorus, 3 Nice Guys (I guess the other one, who did the base beat, must not be very nice – or maybe he’s nicer than the other three), The Boys of Enchantment (they were fabulous and got the biggest ovation), Critical Mass (a great name for a group in Los Alamos) and 4 Praise (they did a wonderful rendition of Lullaby (Goodnight My Angel.)

After the Intermission, it was time for their guest quartet, the 2010 International Quartet Champion, Storm Front. They came out wearing purple suits with lime green shirts (a trademark of theirs) and started performing immediately.  It was comedy and surprise for the rest of the evening. From silly antics where the shortest singer in the group is hidden by the other three to a rather inept magician (same man) and ending finally with them playing brass instruments (I want to say it was A Trumpeter’s Holiday but I’m not real sure about that.) All in all – I’m glad we went. It was time and money well spent.

  1. Sounds like fabulous fun, Francine. Wow! Purple and lime green, eh?! Enough to bring on an immediate migraine! xxx

  2. Actually they didn’t look too bad from the 9th row center of the auditorium. And I kind of like those colors anyway.
