Dave Jacobs's blog

We are proud to announce that, in response to a request by Dave Jacobs, chapter president, Gainesville Mayor Harvey Ward Jr. issued a proclamation in observance of the Barbergators' 50th Anniversary show. The proclamation designated April 26, 2024 as "Barbergators Chorus Day" in the City of Gainesville!

The proclamation reads:
WHEREAS, the Barbershop Harmony Society was founded on April 11, 1938 for the purpose of preserving and encouraging barbershop quartets to sing [sic] in America. The Barbergators Chorus was chartered in 1973 as the Gainesville Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society and has been a part of the Gainesville Community for over 50 years; and

Celebrate 50 years of 4-part harmony with the Barbergators Chorus at our 50th Anniversary Show, April 27th at 7pm!

The show will feature Wise Guys, Time of Our Lives, the Gainesville Harmony Show Chorus, and the Barbergators Chorus! Barbershop harmony at it's best!

"Wise Guys" is a crazy fun quartet with a big sound and great comic timing! They entertain every audience! Wise Guys began their journey in 1996, winning the Sunshine District Championship in 1998. After a couple of part changes, they won again in 2007, and recently came our of retirement to entertain audiences once again. Chad, Mark, Aaron, and Brett can't wait to sing for you!
