In Celebration of the Human Voice - The Essential Musical Instrument
The original members of Wise Guys met in 1995. From the beginning, the biggest obstacle was getting together for rehearsals. You see, the quartet members have never lived in the same city. Over the history of the quartet, the guys have lived in Jacksonville, Tallahassee, Orlando and Gainesville, Florida as well as in Atlanta GA, Raleigh NC, and Columbia SC. Whew! In the fall of 1998, they became Sunshine District (State of Florida) Champions. Wise Guys have continued to compete with the best quartets in the world and are currently ranked 27th internationally. Today, the quartet consists of four experienced performers with a variety of musical backgrounds. As you will read, a couple of the guys are professional musicians. Their comedic flair continues to delight audiences around the globe. As if their music wasn't big enough, with a minimum height of six foot three inches tall, the fingertip-to-fingertip span of this svelte foursome resembles that of Boeing 747. The common thread between them is the love of entertaining audiences, thus these gentle giants have begun carving their own niche in the Barbershop Harmony Society as well as in the hearts of many.
