A Barbershop quartet with a twist!

Boardwalk, an unconventional quartet by any standard, is dedicated to creating energetic comedic performances that fuse costumes from the roaring 20's, 4-part harmony, and a unique selection of string instruments. They like to call this new genre of music "Barber-Folk" and it's the inspiration of many of their musical heroes of days gone by.

This is not your traditional Barbershop quartet.

Brad Hine

The high part

Our tenor, Bradley Hine, is most notable for his hair. It is thick, natural and just barely a hint of grey. To our knowledge, Brad has never had to use any creams or thickening agents to maintain his full head of hair. Oh yeah, he masterfully plays the strings. For these reasons, he is truly our hero.

Mark Schlinkert

The familiar part

Singing lead is Mark Schlinkert. When Mark isn’t singing, he works diligently as an accomplished yoga instructor and also teaches Lamaze classes 3 times a week. During quartet rehearsals, he will often yell out “push, push” for no apparent reason.

Jared Carlson

The low part
Pookie attempts to sing bass. He does so at the behest of the other 3 members of the quartet. Other than this, he has very few other talents and really none that can be mentioned here.

David Calland

The strange part

A fine baritone, David Calland is a gifted singer and spends quite a bit of his time trying to figure out the notes that the other three voices decided not to sing. He's a machine!

Those that follow Boardwalk know that David Calland is our baritone singer and bass player. Well, Mr. Davo had a bicycling mishap. Yep, you heard it right. Dave flipped over the handlebar and landed on his right forearm. He was wearing his helmet and it took a huge hit, but it absolutely protected his noggin. With that he had very little road rash (amazingly) and a small chip in a front tooth, but his arm is not good. It broke in 2 places at the elbow requiring an extensive 4 1/2 hour surgery. With the first surgery complete, the bones look a bit like Pick-up sticks. Dave will not be able to play bass for a couple of months and our buddy Chad Bennett has offered to fill that role! Dave will still sing and perform and Chad will play the bass. How many are in your quartet?? Thank you Chad, you're a great friend!! Here are a few pics of Dave's work. ... See MoreSee Less
