Being a part of National Barbershop Day was very rewarding.  The attendance at the event was huge.  The warmth and camaraderie in the room was inspiring.  We look forward to next year’s event.

Throughout the 1880s in the South, men mingled with barbers and others in the shop while waiting for their haircut.  They sang and harmonized together for entertainment.  This sound turned into a genre called barbershop music and continued thriving from then until the early 1900s. This art of harmonized singing was to produce a style of a cappella without the need for accompanying music.  Each quartet sang songs with easy-to-understand lyrics and catchy melodies.

Not long after the founding of SPEBSQSA, an all-women organization in Tulsa was founded and named Sweet Adelines International.  Now, on April 11 each year, men and women celebrate this barbershop birthday together.
