    Saturday Evening Post: 1st Edition

    Though only formed in 1998, the SEP, as they are known, are Rocky Mountain District Champions. With an obvious allegiance and love for true barbershop form, songs such as "Let's Get Away From It All," "Tonight, Tonight" and "Heart And Soul," though not originally conceived as quartet material, have lost all trace of swing and Broadway, and are zinging examples of vertical harmony. The tag of "Stormy Weather," to name just one, shows the Post staking its territory without equivocation, cleverly invoking the blues feel and sealing the deal with a tenor pedal tone over the top. "The Clown Medley" and "Gospel Medley" invoke the nostalgia of turn-of-century Americana.

    Saturday Evening Post: 2nd Edition

    2nd Edition showcases each individual voice in the Saturday Evening Post quartet. Scott, Allen, Chris and Bobby continue to bring a diversity of style, heart and creativity with a wonderful blend of barbershop. The variations include art songs, swing songs, Broadway songs and Swedish folk songs. 2001 marked the fourth consecutive year that Saturday Evening Post was a featured performer at the Bolton Landing Barbershop Festival. This is a testament to the strength of the group. Album favorites include "Kom Du Ljuva" (Swedish Traditional), "Saturday is the Loneliest Night of the Week" and "And So It's Over."

    Saturday Evening Post: 3rd Edition

    Consistently up there with the very best Barbershop quartets, Colorado Springs-based SEP placed 5th at the 2004 SPEBSQSA finals in Louisville, and 7th at the 2005 Finals in Salt Lake City. "That's A Plenty" is the group's 3rd excellent CD, and it showcases the group's love of Americana classics, from the early 1900s through the big band era and into the beat of the 1950s and 60s, their lively personalities and sense of fun, and harmonies that ring until somebody answers. 15 songs, the title tune (which is also performed with rock legends The Band, "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows," "End of the World," pop/doo-wop classics "Barbara Ann" and "In the Still of the Night," the spiritual ""Follow the Drinking Gourd," "Blues in the Night," "Gospel Medley," the powerful "It is Well with My Soul," and bonus live track "The Ragin' Cajun," are favorites. If you'll forgive us, "That's A Plenty" good stuff from veteran harmonizers and entertainers, Saturday Evening Post!"
