What They're Saying....
"Brigade is a high for anyone who loves to quartet. The fellowship, ringing chords, and just plain enjoyment of singing with your fellow Barbershoppers is what it's all about." Jim DeBusman
"The Brigade weekend is truly a blast for all!! To fellowship and just plain enjoy what it is we do." Garry Texeira, GOTCHA 2004 International Gold Medalists
"Brigade is the most exciting thing to happen to quartet singing since O.C. Cash decided it might be fun to have a quartet contest!" Bob Clark, Wilmington NC.
Harmony Brigade for Women
Women also have the opportunity to participate in the eXtreme Quartetting™ experience. Both the UK and European Harmony Brigades are mixed events, and the women have their own Women's Harmony Brigade in Wilmington Delaware in August.
About Our Founder
The Association of eXtreme Quartet Harmony Brigades is deeply indebted to the founder of the Brigade movement, Charlie Rose, of North Carolina. Charlie's vision of a worldwide network of eXtreme quartetters has been realized, with 9 Brigades in the US and two in Europe spreading the joy of finely tuned barbershop quartet style singing to men and audiences on two continents. Charlie has participated in over 100 Brigades! All eXtreme Quartetters appreciate Charlie's continued wisdom, foresight, counsel, support, generosity, and great singing!
