Nightwatch was formed in December of 1998 as a result of a lost bet, or at least it seems that way sometimes. Matt (a fireman Ų ask him to show you his Dalmatian), Paul (international secret agent/sock garter model), Dan (the new voice behind that AFLAC duck) and Scott (not sure what he's doing this week) have been verbally berating each other ever since meeting in Greendale WI's Midwest Vocal Express, also known as the 2002 5th Place Bronze Medallist Barbershop Chorus. Their consistent refusal to sing any song seriously actually paid off in August of 2000, as they were crowned the Buckeye Invitational Funny Bone Comedy Quartet Champions after performing their now infamous (this means "more than famous", right?) Diner Set in front of tens of people in Columbus OH. Their latest achievement occurred in April of 2001, when they duped an esteemed judging panel just enough to capture the Land O‚Lakes Division I Quartet Championship. No matter what the venue, you can expect high-quality singing and a wide array of musical styles from this group. What you can't expect is for them to go to bed early and to have serious conversations with each other, or anyone else for that matter.

2000 Buckeye Invitational Comedy Quartet champs and 2003 Chicago Harmony Sweeps Regionals champs, Barbershop comedy quartet Nightwatch sends a very funny, harmonious CD, "Songs We Almost Learned." On the cover is a flawless takeoff on Edward Hopper's famous 1942 painting "Nighthawks," featuring the boys in costume. The first 7 songs are pretty straightforward, well-done b-shop staples, "Sweet Georgia Brown," "Am I Wasting My Time On You," a scratchy-record cover of Duke Ellington's "Mood Indigo," "Love Letters," "Sh-Boom," "Lullaby" (Goodnight My Angel), and "Jezebel." The last cut is the infamous live "Diner Set," which includes "Where, Oh Where, Are You Tonight," "Since You've Been Gone," "Yes Sir, That's My Baby" and a manic "Truck Drivin' Man." There's some very funny stuff in the full-color liner notes (for instance, there's a big, sloppy thank you to police everywhere for "not arresting Matt over the powdered donut thing"). Fun, funny stuff—good musical comedy is a gift, and Nightwatch has it!
