On September 9th, the Dunn County Barbershoppers held their 39th Annual Bloomer Bash Quartet Showcase in Bloomer, WI.
It was a night of harmonizing, with 4 part a cappella singing in quartets that the guys had randomly formed. It was pretty exciting with the chapter of 27 members to have 21 singers perform in various quartets. Some of the singers even decided to perform out of their element, learning a voice part they don’t normally sing.
The contest was close, but the judges decided on three (3) quartet winners.
• 1st Place – “Miller Time Quartet”: Pat Hogan, Neil Segerstrom, Craig Schultz, Phil Schector
• 2nd Place – “Moon Shine Boys Quartet”: Wilbur Hoppe, Pat Mulheron, Dave McNaughton, Darrell Hoepner
• 3rd Place – “Decomposed Quartet”: Gary Johnson, Terry Hoepner, Craig Schultz, Darrell Hoepner
