Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

They love the sound of 4-part acapella harmony which is delivered by the barbershop style.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Westfield London Institute of Chartered Accountants Britain's Got Talent The O2 Arena Great Ormond Street Hospital Manchester Cathedral Harrogate Convention Centre

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Ringmasters Vocal Spectrum Pentatonix Westminster Chorus

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

We sang for several hours on top of the O2 arena. We also did a private performance for the judges of Britain's Got Talent.

Do you have different line-up options?

As we are a chorus, we are able to field many different barbershop quartets. Some of our quartets are established quartets that regularly compete at the national level.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Not to worry, we shall try to be as flexible as possible.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

No

How much time do you need to set up?

If singing without amplification, we can just run on and sing. If we are using our sound system, it'd take 10 minutes to set up.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes, barbershop is well suited for this.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

If there are specific song requests, we will try to accomodate them.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Yes. In general, we do not require amplification. However in certain circumstances, it can be beneficial and thus we have a completely portable PA system that we take with us to gigs.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes, even if a song isn't in our song list, we have many very talented arrangers that will be able to write together a barbershop arrangement of the song. This would usually increase the price however.

Meantime Chorus were really great to work with. The performance was exactly what we needed and they were flexible and adaptable around our needs on the day. It was a pleasure to work with them!

A barbershop quartet from Meantime Chorus were a great addition to our 1920s Style Boardwalk Event. They brought an authentic sound and their outfits and interaction with public created some great photos.
