Fanatix quartet consists of Connie Noble, tenor (past international champion with The 4th Edition and Savvy and long time tenor of High Society); Darcy Newell, lead; Sandy Shelver, baritone (past international champion with High Society); and Gerry Papageorge, bass (past international champion (tenor) with Panache). They formed in the summer of 1998 when this kid from New Mexico and a big shot tenor and baritone finally convinced another legendary tenor/lead to make bass her new mission. They earned 4th place at their first regional contest (the highest they ever got!) and earned a wild card slot to international. They were thrilled to sing their way into 4th place at our first international contest in Atlanta in 1999! (This was Darcy's first international medal, and Gerry became the first Sweet Adeline ever to earn international medals in 3 different voice parts: lead, tenor, and bass).

In 2001, they teamed up with coaches, Jean Barford, Nick Papageorge, and Lynne Smith and really got to work on finding their sound. It was an exciting realization of that good hard work to be crowned international champs in Portland on October 12, 2001. Connie is a buyer/planner for Qualcomm, Inc. in San Diego and enjoys golfing, shopping, creating dried florals, and collecting antique china. Darcy is an executive producer of TV commercials for a production company based in Santa Monica and recently became a licensed insurance and securities agent in California. She enjoys playing outside. Sandy is a travel agent in San Diego and a world traveler; she greatly enjoys being the grandmother of two! Gerry is the mother of 3 boys, a voice teacher, and has a holiday decorating business; she presently enjoys the thought of some day completing her newly re-designed home in La Habra, California.

Review: Formed in 1998, Fanatix won 4th place in their first regional, and a wild card entry to their first international competition in Atlanta, where they placed fourth.

After that came an invitation to be the first to perform barbershop music at the Smithsonian Institution, the release of "Slam Dunk Barbershop" and all kinds of fun.

Fanatix : Up A Tree

Review: Always very entertaining the 2002 Queens of Harmony are clearly enjoying themselves on this latest release and the listener will most certainly join in the fun. Why this release is called "Up A Tree" we are not quite sure but going by the photos on the CD they seem to be having a fine old time well - up a tree.. We really enjoyed this recording with voices fit for royalty and arrangements by all of the greats including Brian Beck, Greg Volk and Clay Hine.
