Max Q

Max Q

Lead: Tony De Rosa. Tenor: Greg Clancy. Baritone: Gary Lewis. Bass: Jeff Oxley.

Why the name Max Q? During the launch of space vehicles, the launch crew can be heard talking about "passing max q". That is the point where the combination of increasing speed and decreasing density is maximum. Vehicles are designed to withstand only a certain Maximum Q before they will suffer structural damage. When Max Q takes the stage, you will discover a new kind of increasing speed of sound and reduced vocal density that creates their own kind of structural damage. A barbershop super quartet!!

Members:- Greg Clancy, Tony De Rosa, Gary Lewis, Jeff Oxley

Max Q : Discovery : 00  1 CD

Max Q : Discovery

'Discovery' is the inaugural CD of Max Q, a newly-formed barbershop quartet, but the subject of considerable SPEBSQSA buzz because of the amazing pedigree of the group's members. Baritone Gary Lewis was a collegiate SPEBS champion prior to winning Gold with Platinum. Tenor Greg Clancy is Associate Director, and 26-year member of the Vocal Majority. Lead Tony De Rosa and bass Jeff Oxley are two of only 13 men who have won SPEBSQSA quartet Gold twice, De Rosa with Keepsake and Platinum, Oxley with Rapscallions and Acoustix. From the first strains of 'Smile Medley,' the opening cut, the sheer vocal and harmonic power of these men is obvious, as is the quality of their arrangements. 13 tunes, some of our favorites are 'If I Had My Way,' a jazzy, blue-note rendition of Van Morrison's 'Moondance,' an intricate 'Shenandoah,' 'When My Sugar Walks Down The Street,' 'Where Is Love,' the spiritual 'Shadrack,' Tony's soaring lead on 'Fare Thee Well, Love.' 'You Tell Me Your Dream,' and a powerful 'Sing, Sing, Sing.' Joe Connelly is the only man ever to have won an amazing 3 quartet Golds, but we wouldn't be at all surprised to see De Rosa and Oxley of the new Supergroup Max Q join him at the next Internationals. Our 'Discovery?' Max Q has a truckload of talent and they know how to use it!

Songlist: Smile Medley (Smile, Darn Ya, Smile / Powder Your Face With Sunshine), Have A Little Talk With Myself, If I Had My Way, Moondance, Shenandoah, When My Sugar Walk Down the Street, Where Is Love?, Shadrack, Fare Thee Well, Love, Honey Medley (My Honey's Lovin Arms / Honey That I Love So Well), You Tell Me Your Dream, Sing, Sing, Sing, Hushabye

Max Q : For The Children

Barbershop supergroup Max Q, Greg, Tony, Gary and Jeff, are all multiple winners of SPEBSQSA gold, with groups like the Vocal Majority, Keepsake, Platinum, Rapscallions and Acoustix, came together to form a barbershop supergroup. At the recent convention in Indianapolis, the group placed 2nd only to Vocal Spectrum, winning Silver Medals against very tought competition. "For the Children is an ambitious 2-CD set of daytime songs and lullabies, dedicated to Tony's niece Christal, who has been courageously fighting cancer since the age of four, and to the group's own 9 children, who receive letters from Daddy in the liner notes. Disc 1 has some wonderful stuff, Disney songs "You Can Fly," Randy Newman's "You've Got A Friend in Me" from "Toy Story," and "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah, "Do-Re-Me" from "The Sound of Music" and "Pure Imagination" from "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory."

Great arrangements, harmonies and kid voices (and some occasional light accompaniment) add up to one of the best CDs to turn kids on to singing that we've ever heard. Bravo, guys!
