We Know Barbershop!

All of our services revolve around support of the arts, especially anything with music. From recording auditions for students, producing fundraising DVDs for music theater troupes, and creating music videos for aspiring pop stars, to all out productions for big bands. We are all about the music and have a special love for barbershop.

We’ve recorded lots of barbershop chorus shows with multi-camera views, custom audio and advanced editing, DVD and Blu-Ray authoring, for many seasons…

Donavan Skaggs – Harmony Kings BOTY 2018

My biggest privilege in the barbershop world has been serving as one of the first “Community Chorus Board Members” in the Barbershop Harmony Society (2017-2019), and being honored by the Federal Way Harmony Kings as their “Barbershopper Of The Year 2018” while not actually singing in the chorus!

Bottom line:

I love music, I love barbershop, and I love helping singers sound as good as they possibly can. I would also love to work with your chorus or quartet on your next recording project. Let’s talk!

As a freelancer, my rates are much lower than commercial studios, and I can offer many services which can be expensive, frustrating or intimidating for those outside the industry, for a fraction of the cost, in an all-in-one package.
