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!
