Are you ready to start your New Year’s resolutions off on a great start? Come and join the Globe-Miami Community Concert Association as they usher in the new year with the fun and engaging Bank of Harmony Quartet on Tuesday, Jan. 7, at 7 p.m. at High Desert Middle School auditorium.
Forget what you think you know about a cappella. These gents provide a night of nonstop music and comedy with songs spanning the last seven decades! Combine musical excellence with witty, fast pace humor, and you have an evening of sheer entertainment! They sing traditional barbershop as well as some great traditional Doo-Wop tunes. They can mix it up with music from popular artists from the 50s all the way into current music from Justin Timberlake, Twentyone Pilots, Sia, No Doubt, and more. They can throw back to the 70s with some BeeGees and Queen, or hit the classic 50s with a little Johnny Cash and Elvis.
They met while singing with the world famous Dapper Dans of Disneyland and Bank of Harmony was born in 2006. They are made up of four accomplished singers with an incredible breadth of experience between them. They have performed across more than 40 of the states, Europe, Hong Kong, the Caribbean, Japan and more. They have entertained for various cruise lines, theme parks, on national TV, county fairs, major market radio stations, regional theatres, national tours and along the Las Vegas Strip. And, now, they will add the Globe-Miami area to their long list of venues!
All performances will begin at 7 p.m. at High Desert Middle School auditorium.
