Barbershop nuts

Treble clef.

Found at www.wpclipart.com
I found my attention grabbed by someone, and I had to tell the guy "I like your shirt!" It had a picture of a pitch pipe, and said "Shut up and blow me a B ♭."

Of course I was thinking of Barbershop music when I saw his shirt, and that's why I said something. I quickly discovered that he's been singing it for two years, that he's in quartet, what choir he sings with, and that he's a Baritone. I commented that that's vocal gymnastics (Bari is weird) and that I'm a Lead. I told him what choir I used to sing with, and we agreed that Basses are awesome.

...and even though I know what choir he's in, and what part he sings, I never found out his name.

I guess I have my priorities straight?

I'd also like to point out that this is the first time in I don't know how long that I've talked music with someone who I've actually been on the same page with. Usually I'm like "Oh, you listen toXXX? No idea who that is..." This was a refreshing change. :)

Always nice to encounter a kindred spirit whether you get his name or not, LOL!

It reminded me how much fun Barbershop is. It's not just the music, it's the inside jokes and the people.
