Endorsements for the CHIPS Quartet:

"I hired the CHIPS Barbershop Quartet to entertain at three (3) Recognition Banquets for a local hospital. Their charismatic interaction, coupled with just the right amount of professionalism, made for a totally enjoyable, entertaining social hour. They literally 'sang for their supper,' as there was no watch-watching and they continued to perform well past their contracted time. My highest praise as to their ability is to state that I will hire them again for any occasion."

"The gentlemen of the CHIPS quartet not only provided an outstanding performance but went above and beyond by roaming and serenading our guests during other portions of the evening.

We look forward to having a return performance in the near future."

"Our group really had a good time being entertained by the CHIPS Quartet at our annual Christmas party this year. Their music was superb and the close harmony was a real treat for us all -- it was tough getting work done on Monday because the staff was all still talking about the fine entertainment from Sunday evening! Thanks to CHIPS for braving the elements far from home and spreading their good cheer."

"It was such a treat to have CHIPS perform for the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Women's Chorus Concert. They are professional and entertaining and are a fine addition to any concert program. This unique barbershop quartet has mastered a wonderful musical blend and their tight harmonies set them apart from the others. What is probably most impressive about CHIPS is their obvious like for each other. It is evident that they just love to perform together. They are able to 'bring the house down' with a repertoire that will please any audience."

We will definitely ask you back for future events here at MHC.
