Barbershop Singers Get The Girls

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Nothing gets a girl going like a barbershop singer.

The Barbershop Harmony Society is accepting students into their Harmony University, which will bring amateur and accomplished barbershop singers to St. Joseph, Missouri, from Sunday (Jul. 26) to August 2.

At the college, singers will learn everything from the basics of music and history of the genre, to intense vocal barbershop training.

The lessons will be worth their weight in women, however, according to director of operations Rick Spencer, who says a barbershop singer knows how to woo the ladies with their voice.

He says, “People ask ‘Why do you like singing?’ But really, they get the girls. Anytime there’s a guy singing to a girl, her heart palpitates a bit.”

Barbershop singers even have groupies, which is understandable since they dress “cool and hip” in snazzy suits now instead of the old striped vests and straw hats.
