Contest Theme Packages

Prohibition Set

Break out your zoot suits or Roaring ’20s grubbies and get ready to explore the mysteries of, and creative solutions for, that dreadful time known as Prohibition:

  • How Are You Goin’ to Wet Your Whistle (When the Whole Darn World Goes Dry)
  • Where Do They Go When They Row-Row-Row (Three Miles Away from the Shore)

and maybe even the gangster song We’re Number One

Sea Set

More for a chorus than a quartet, this medley deals with sailors who have had their shore leave canceled. It is pretty funny and clever if I do say so myself:

  • Sea Medley

[Lots of songs would work; for example, A Son of the Sea or How Deep Is the Ocean.]

Seniors Set

Who among us isn’t older than he or she used to be? But, hey, let’s have some fun with the passage of time:

  • Button Up Your Overcoat
  • If I Had My Life to Live Over

for shows try Senior Moments [You can’t sing “brain farts” in contest.]

Twenties Set

This one is pretty flexible, of course, for so many of our barbershop claassics were written in this roaring decade. So you could either sing these two uptunes or pick one of them and just add a ballad:

  • How Ya Gonna Keep ‘Em Down on the Farm
  • Twenties Dance Medley
