Barbershop Quartets still exist?
While doing research for my first post about music along the Arizona-Mexico border, I stumbled upon a Sonoran barbershop quartet called Sonoran Sound. While they have a website and a Facebook page, their Youtube channel only has two videos posted. I think the reason barbershop quartets are a dying art is because of the lack of publicity. Some people like the intimacy of small crowds and would rather have a few loyal fans than a crowd full of marginal ones. The problem with that is Sonoran Sound is actually halfway decent, so they should have more than 21 Likes on Facebook or 331 Youtube views. Theere’s more people than that in the largest class on the UA campus, let alone all of Tucson. Judge for yourself, these guys are good.
