V-Chords is a high-energy sextet based in Portland, Oregon. Established as a four-man group in early 2006, the ensemble increased its membership to five several months later and began performing at parties, outdoor summer festivals, and weddings. Recently V-Chords added a sixth voice in order to expand their hamonic textures to the rich, full sound they bring you today. V-Chords takes pride in the wide breadth of their musical offering - from pop/rock to jazz to country to funk to doo-wop - and is very excited to perform in the 2007 NW Harmony Sweepstakes competition.
