2002 Central States District Barbershop Quartet Champions!

This unlikely foursome came together in the spring of 2002; dedicated to singing well, and having a good time. While the quartet spans over three decades and 250 miles, their shared love of singing and laughter creates the common bond that makes the quartet click. In their first appearance at Central States District Quartet Competition in the fall of 2002, they won the championship. In the spring of 2003, they narrowly missed qualification for International Quartet Competition by a scant six points thus earning them the distinction of being the highest scoring non-qualifying quartet in the world! Next year's plans are to score at least 6 more points!

Members of the quartet include Tenor John Vaughan, a Financial Consultant from Hudson, Iowa; Lead Curt Meier, who owns his own computer programming business in State Center, Iowa; Baritone Chad Knipfer, who works as a web page designer; and Bass Dave Pinkall, who is a school administrator in Fremont, Nebraska.

With a rich background in quarteting that includes an accumulation of 6 district championships, 22 trips to International and two top twenty international finishes; John, Curt, Chad, and Dave blend their talents into a quartet that promises to get your attention. Their many years of show experience has enabled them to create a delightful mix of solid musical production and light-hearted humor that will tickle your entertainment fancy.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy some great harmony from this intergenerational, interstate, championship foursome! Special mention is due to the Congregational Church in Stuart, Iowa, the mid-point where the quartet meets weekly for their rehearsals.
