3 Men & A Melody

3 Men & A Melody

.

Start with two music educators, add one preacher, stir in a financial planner, and you could have the basic ingredients for any barbershop quartet. But 3 Men & A Melody is not your basic quartet. Tenor, Rob Mathieu, 2nd generation barbershopper, is a Kansas City based children's musician/performer. Not only does he teach preschool music, he performs interactive musical kids shows under the alias, Rockin Rob, geared for children 2-10 years old. Eric Derks leads the foursome musically but admits that telling jokes is not his forte. Brian Bellof is a second generation barbershop bass with a natural ability for showmanship. Baritone, Brad Stephens is the out-of-control comic of the four who keeps 3 Men & A Melody's audiences laughing.

3 Men & A Melody is a group that has been singing since 1991. In 1995, 3 Men & A Melody moved out of the ranks of Collegiate Competition. Since that time due to many great coaches, patient families, and hours and hours of nose-to-the-grindstone work, 3 Men & A Melody became the Central States District Champion in 1998. After making it to the International stage for the first time in 2001, and after the dust settled, they found themselves 17th in the world of Barbershop quartets. This was an absolutely inspirational time for this quartet and a turning point for them as well. Then, for the following two years, 2002-2003, they were blessed to be one of the top 20 quartets in the world, and in 2004 they finished as a top 10 finalist quartet. They feel so honored and blessed to have this opportunity to represent this awesome hobby of barbershop singing.

Out of their respect for music, these four gentlemen have always worked hard to do their best to sing all styles of music with integrity and excellence. Their International Competition achievements have given them new confidence and a sense that others believe in them as well. It is 3 Men & A Melody's hope and prayer that as you listen to the songs they sing for you, be it barbershop or jazz, ballad or up beat, that you will hear and feel the love and respect that they have for music as well as the joy they have in performing it for you. Depending on the song, may a smile come across your face or a tear roll down your cheek.

3 Men & A Melody love what they do and have a high respect for the barbershop style. Their talent, energy, and enthusiasm are truly exciting for everyone to watch. 3 Men & A Melody's love of performing continues to escalate every day in hopes that they will be known throughout the Barbershop Harmony Society and the United States for their fun-filled entertainment and singing excellence.

3 Men and a Melody : Strictly Barber Doo Wop : 00  1 CD : 

3 Men and a Melody : Strictly Barber Doo Wop

Review: With the 1998 Central States District Championship and some international competition successes under their belts, the 4 young men who are 3 Men & A Melody have decided to bring their powerful, intricate harmonies into the recording studio. 12 songs, some of our favorites: "Shoo Fly Pie and Apple Pan Dowdy," ""In The Wee Small Hours of the Morning," "Send In the Clowns," "Route 66," "Zombie Jamboree" and Harry Connick, Jr.'s "Recipe For Making Love." "Strictly" is a fun, energetic CD, very much like 3MAAM's live show, we would guess, and we're expecting big things of these guys.

Songlist: Shoo Fly Pie and Apple Pan Dowdy, R.O.C.K in the U.S.A, In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning, Happy Together, I Can't Get Next To You, Send In The Clowns, Route 66, There Goes My Heart, Galileo, The Way You Look Tonight, Zombie Jamboree (Back to Back), Recipe for Making Love
