Interstate Rivals

Interstate Rivals

1987 - Barbershop Quartet Champions

Lead: Joe Connelly. Tenor: Kipp Buckner. Baritone: Paul Gilman. Bass: Jay Hawkins.

1987 International Champions, the Rivals placed sixth in 1984, third in '85, and moved to second before topping the charts, so to speak. That they were the second youngest quartet ever to win the championship would seem to imply a lack of experience, but when they won they had 45 years barbershop singing among the four. Each of the Interstate Rivals went on to win another quartet championship, Joe Connelly with Keepsake in l992, Kip Buckner with the Gas House Gang in 1993, while Jay Hawkins and Paul Gilman were half of the 1995 Champions, Marquis. What a history! In their selection of a dozen songs they stick to beautiful barbershop singing only hamming it up a bit on 'Cecilia.'
