Musical Island Boys

The Musical Island Boys from Wellington have continued to prove themselves among the best male barbershop quartets in New Zealand and the world. Originally from Tawa College, the Musical Island Boys have gone from strength to strength over time, and continue to strive to perfect the craft of a cappella singing in the barbershop style. In 2002 AND 2003, they won the New Zealand Secondary Schools Young Men In Harmony competition. In 2003 they also placed third and received bronze medals at the New Zealand Open Mens' Competition in Hamilton. That year they placed second and received silver medals at the 7th Wellington Open Compeition, placing behind the National Champion Sweet Adelines Quartet Fourth Avenue.

From the other "down under" here is an excellent recording from the Wellington, New Zealand based quartet Musical Island Boys who are a certifiable barbershop boy band phenomenon. Winners of the Gold medals at the 2014 Barbershop International competition they are one of only a couple non-US quartets to become champions. And it's easy to see why these lads have done so well when you hear their excellent renditions of these top-notch arrangements. All four singers are of Pacific Islander heritage including Samoan and Maori and perhaps it's the great tradition of singing in their cultures that give them the special touch they so clearly demonstrate.
