Main Street

Main Street(メイン・ストリート)は、バーバーショップ・ハーモニー協会の2017年のチャンピオン・カルテットです。

バリトンのマイクとベースのマイロンは、初のカルテットとしての金メダルですが、
テナーのロジャーは2つ目の金、リードのトニーは、何と4つ目の金メダルです。
トニーの4つの金メダルの内、2つはバリトンで、2つはリードでの受賞です。

彼らが金メダルを取ったカルテットを、下表にまとめてみました。

カルテット名 テナー リード バリトン バス
1992 Keepsake Roger Ross Joe Connelly Tony De Rosa Don Barnick
2000 Platinum Gary Lewis Joe Connelly Tony De Rosa Kevin Miles
2007 Max Q Greg Clancy Tony De Rosa Gary Lewis Jeff Oxley
2017 Main Street Roger Ross Tony De Rosa Mike McGee Myron Whittlesey


最初に、ロジャーとトニーが金メダルを取ったカルテットは、2009年の東京バーバーズ・ショウのゲスト・カルテットKeepsake(キープセイク)です。
この時は、バリトンのトニーは仕事の都合で来日できず、かわりにAcoustix(アクースティクス)のテナーTodd Wilson(トッド・ウィルソン)が、Keepsakeに参加しました。
Keepsakeが金メダルを取ったのは1992年ですから、当時トニーはまだ二十歳そこそこ。
同じKeepsakeの1993年と2017年のOnce Upon A Timeの演奏を見比べると、四半世紀の歳月が感じられます。
Once Upon A Time (Keepsake, 1993)
Once Upon A Time (Keepsake, 2017)

次に、トニーが金メダルを取ったのは2000年、Keepsakeの時のリードのジョーと再び組んだPlatinum(プラチナム)。
What’ll I Do (Platinum, 2000)

トニーの3つ目の金メダルは、Max Q(マックス・キュー)のリードで。Platinumの時にテナーを歌っていたゲィリーが、バリトンを歌っています。
Here To The Losers (Parody) (Max Q, 2007)

そして、トニーの4つ目の金メダルは、20年の歳月を経て再びロジャーと組んだ、ストロー・ハットがトレード・マークのMain Street(メイン・ストリート)。
コンテストのステージでも、聴衆をまき込んで歌って踊ります。
Evolution Of Dance Medley (Main Street, 2017)
