Special Guest Quartet, “Sound Check”

Special Guest Quartet Sound Check is based in the Wasatch Front Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society.  FYI: the Wasatch Front is a long narrow continuous urban area in north central Utah extending from the southern edge of Nephi to the northern edge of Brigham City.  The area has a population of about 2.3 million and includes Provo, Salt Lake City and Ogden. 

Sound Check’s members are experienced long-time barbershoppers and quartet singers who began singing together about three years ago.  Mark Andromidas was the lead singer in four other quartets from the Wasatch Front during the last decade. Brothers Brian (bass) and Blair (baritone) Dowd began singing in quartets more than a decade ago when they lived in California, and tenor James Schofield is a veteran quartet singer in the Front and, previously, in Oregon of the Evergreen District. 

Sound Check has excellent audience rapport and a nicely blended full sound, supported by their deep bass, Brian Dowd.  They have performed at Temple Square and in numerous other venues in the Salt Lake City area, and they are medalists in Rocky Mountain District Quartet Competition.  You can preview Sound Check at the links below.
