It must run in the family as his sister, Rebecca, is a world-class opera singer. Johnny is a member of the Plano, Texas Chapter of SPEBSQSA.

Brian Beck (Bass), is the answer to the trivia question "Who is the only man in the history of the Society to finish in the top 10 singing each of the four parts?" He currently resides in Colorado Springs, directs the Colorado Springs Men's Chapter, and is fondly known as our "two-timer", having won the International Gold Medal with the Dealer's Choice (1973) and the Side Street Ramblers (1983).Brian is well known for his studio work on jingles and band arrangements and does most of the vocal arrangements for the group.

Saturday Evening Post : 3rd Edition

Review: Consistently up there with the very best Barbershop quartets, Colorado Springs-based SEP placed 5th at the 2004 SPEBSQSA finals in Louisville, and 7th at the 2005 Finals in Salt Lake City. "That's A Plenty" is the group's 3rd excellent CD, and it showcases the group's love of Americana classics, from the early 1900s through the big band era and into the beat of the 1950s and 60s, their lively personalities and sense of fun, and harmonies that ring until somebody answers. 15 songs, the title tune (which is also performed with rock legends The Band, "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows," "End of the World," pop/doo-wop classics "Barbara Ann" and "In the Still of the Night," the spiritual ""Follow the Drinking Gourd," "Blues in the Night," "Gospel Medley," the powerful "It is Well with My Soul," and bonus live track "The Ragin' Cajun," are favorites. If you'll forgive us, "That's A Plenty" good stuff from veteran harmonizers and entertainers, Saturday Evening Post!"

Songlist: That's A Plenty, Tin Roof Blues, I'm Always Chasing Rainbows, I Hear Music, Moa Li Hua, End of the World, Barbara Ann, In the Still of the Night, Pokarekare Ana, Follow the Drinking Gourd, Blues In the Night, It Is Well With My Soul, Gospel Medley, New Zealand National Anthem, That's A Plenty (With the Band), BONUS TRACK - The Ragin' Cajun

Saturday Evening Post : 2nd Edition

Review: 2nd Edition showcases each individual voice in the Saturday Evening Post quartet. Scott, Allen, Chris and Bobby continue to bring a diversity of style, heart and creativity with a wonderful blend of barbershop. The variations include art songs, swing songs, Broadway songs and Swedish folk songs. 2001 marked the fourth consecutive year that Saturday Evening Post was a featured performer at the Bolton Landing Barbershop Festival. This is a testament to the strength of the group. Album favorites include "Kom Du Ljuva" (Swedish Traditional), "Saturday is the Loneliest Night of the Week" and "And So It's Over."

Songlist: Anything Goes, Basin Street Blues, I Thought About You, It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing), On My Own From "Les MiserablesRich Hasty, Bring Him Home From "Les Miserables" , Saturday Night Is The Lonliest Night Of The Week, Kom Du Ljuva (Swedish Traditional), Fading Like A Flower, Smile, I Heard You Singing, Give Me A Barbershop Song, And So It's Over, Oh Canada - National Anthem Of Canada

Saturday Evening Post : 1st Edition : 00  1 CD : 

Saturday Evening Post : 1st Edition

Review: Though only formed in 1998, the SEP, as they are known, are Rocky Mountain District Champions. With an obvious allegiance and love for true barbershop form, songs such as "Let's Get Away From It All," "Tonight, Tonight" and "Heart And Soul," though not originally conceived as quartet material, have lost all trace of swing and Broadway, and are zinging examples of vertical harmony. The tag of "Stormy Weather," to name just one, shows the Post staking its territory without equivocation, cleverly invoking the blues feel and sealing the deal with a tenor pedal tone over the top. "The Clown Medley" and "Gospel Medley" invoke the nostalgia of turn-of-century Americana.

Songlist: Tonight, Tonight, Let's Get Away From It All, Stormy Weather, Sweet Lorraine, Let The Rest Of The World Go By, Running' Wild, Makin Whoopie, Clown Medley, I Can't Give You Anything But Love, Little White Cloud That Cried, Gospel Medley, Heart and Soul, Tin Roof Blues, My Cup Runneth Over With Love, Drinkin' Gourd, Star Spangled Banner
