St. Patrick's Day

Quartet singing is great fun — and several of our chorus' quartets go sing at the "drop of a hat". That's what The Deliverymen quartet did again for St Patrick's Day, just for fun.

St Patrick's Day fell on Thursday this year, so we got started in the afternoon and sang Irish songs well into the evening at a whole series of locations (with pre-arrangements).

Singing at the Nexus Brewery was an excellent start, especially since we got such a good reception (see below).

The Barley Room welcomed us, too, both inside and on the outside patio. There, one of the patrons insisted on having her picture taken with us.

Other places were also very welcoming, perhaps none more loudly than Billy's. We don't have pictures from a number of the other locations, however, because their lighting made available-light photography difficult.

We closed out our evening singing at Kelly's Brew Pub where we sang between sets of a Celtic group. This venue was also unique for the day as the only location at which we had a microphone, a necessity in view of Kelly's size and the number of people there.

An extremely enjoyable afternoon and evening.

Members of The Deliverymen quartet are tenor Mark Burton, lead Gil Whalen, bass Cy Shuster, and baritone Gary Cable.

Coming up next is our Spring Show on May 21. See our chorus' webpage for details. In the meantime, why not celebrate National Barbershop Quartet Day on April 11.

If you enjoy barbershop style music, watch for our next show and come hear us sing.
Or come sing with us. It's really fun!

The New MexiChords is an a cappella barbershop chorus in Albuquerque, New Mexico, affiliated with the Barbershop Harmony Society.
