This Ain’t Your Daddy’s Barbershop, Saturday, June 12, SCC

Friday, June 11, 2010

Local barbershop chorus, The Seattle SeaChordsmen, will have their Spring Show this Saturday, June 12, at the Shoreline Community College Little Theater. This group has been creating intricate harmonies in the Seattle area for sixty-one years.

Rod Heivilin, Shoreline resident and group member, says "Barbershop style music goes way back to the 1930’s and has withstood the test of time."

Barbershop-style music is actually four-part harmony, sung without accompanying instruments (a cappella.) Over the years many songs have been adapted and arranged for barbershop style singing.

The show is titled “This Ain’t Your Daddy’s Barbershop.” Performers will take the audience from the late 1930’s era into the current time, showing how this fabulous style of music has endured.

They will sing a few of the old standards like “Let Me Call You Sweetheart” and “Sweet Adeline,” then will progress into songs made famous by the Beatles, the Drifters, the Turtles, Herman’s Hermits and John Denver.

"This Ain't Your Daddy's Barbershop" features the Seattle SeaChordsmen Chorus, several quartets from the chorus, a quartet from the Seattle Shores chapter of Sweet Adeline’s International, an incredible group of high school students from Kamiak High School in Mukelteo and an international-bound quartet that is currently ranked 11th in the nation.

The show starts at 2 pm. Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets or may be purchased at the door. Adults $17, seniors $13, students $7 and under 6 free. For more information go to the SeaChordsman webpage.

Shoreline Community College is located at 16101 Greenwood Ave N, Shoreline 98133.
