Gas House Gang
Gas House Gang
Since that time, the foursome's energetic singing style and diverse repertoire have proven the appropriateness of the title to people across North America and Europe. After winning the 1988 Central States District Competition in their first attempt, they began a steady climb up the International Competition ladder which culminated in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where they were awarded the 1993 International Quartet Championship with the highest point total ever scored on the International stage. The Gas House Gang has performed in 40 states and has sung in such diverse locales as Hawaii, England, Sweden, Holland and New York City's Carnegie Hall. They have been seen nation-wide on the recent PBS special, "Voices in Harmony," and have been heard world-wide on BBC radio. Performers with whom they have shared the stage include such distinguished musicans as The Four Freshmen, The Swingle Singers, Rockapella, The Persuasions, The Chordettes, The King's Singers, The St.
Louis Symphony Orchestra and Victor Borge. The Gang made its theatrical debut in front of over 70,000 people as the barbershop quartet in "The Music Man" at The Muny, one of the world's largest outdoor theaters. They have produced three recordings which have consistently been top sellers in the Primarily A Cappella catalog, and were recently awarded three nominations by the Contemporary A Cappella Society of America, including Best Barbershop Song, Studio Album of the Year, and Artist of the Year. Baritone Rob Henry died of esophageal cancer on September 4, 2003, and the quartet disbanded in 2005 after fulfilling their prior obligations with fill-in bartiones Mike Slamka of Power Play, Tony DeRosa of Keepsake, Brandon Guyton of Four Voices, and D.J. Hiner of The Ritz.
