Confederates

Confederates

Lead: Dave Labonte. Tenor: George Evans. Baritone: Bill Busby. Bass: Wally Singleton.

"Save Your Confederate money, boys, the South shall rise again!" That song by The Confederates, 1956 International Champions, was to go down in history, and the quartet went on to become a true legend within the Society over the next 13 years. Organized at a Memphis Chapter party in September 1953. The Confederates were a popular quartet even before they won the championship. Composed of George Evans, tenor; Dave LeBonte, lead; Bill "Buz" Busby, bari; and Wally Singelton, bass; the foursome appeared in authentic looking Confederate officer uniforms, complete with dress swords, or as white-haired, frock-coated Southern "Colonels."

Confederates : Confederate Encores

The Confederates, two born-and-bred Rebels teamed with two Yankees, placed 31st in International Competition in 1954, 2nd in Miami in 1955, and in 1956 became International Champions at Minneapolis. Featuring the pure Tenor of George Evans, the mellow Baritone of "Buzz" Busby, the Rich Bass of Wally Singleton and the sweet lead of Dave LaBonte, the Confederates were pure professionals, exulting in the joy and power of their voices. From the heart-tugging: "Chloe," "Boy of Mine," "Down Where The South Begins," "Pal of My Cradle Days," "A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square," and "Just In Case You Change Your Mind;" to the pure fun: "I'm Looking Over a Four-Leaf Clover," "Twelfth Street Rag," "Creole Cutie," "Red Head," these guys' singing is anything but, ah, uniform! 12 great songs.
