Gene Cokeroft

Born: 1935. Died: 2015. Lived in: United States

Most Barbershoppers would recognize Gene primarily as the tenor of 1961 International Quartet Champion The Suntones, a landmark, trendsetting quartet whose musical innovations and wide-ranging public appearances brought the style to millions of listeners.

A prolific arranger and composer, Gene is credited with dozens of charts in our library, including definitive versions still sung today, and with his wife Iris, composed the stalwart show favorite "They Wrote 'Em In The Good Old Days." A committed chapter chorus director, Gene helmed the Miamians Chorus for more than 40 years.

In the past decade, Gene had devoted himself to bringing barbershop to a new generation of singers, as a key player in the outreach movement. He formed, directed and took the Young Miamians to the International Youth Chorus Festival in 2009, a group which proved a hotbed of young talent.

For these, and many other unsung moments of mentorship and joy, Gene Cokeroft earned the distinction as the only man to TWICE be inducted into the Barbershop Harmony Society's Hall of Fame: first in 2005, as part of The Suntones, and again in 2009, as an individual of immense merit.
