The Sound Of Harmony

HEAVY MEDAL - Mixed Barbershop from Germany at its best

HEAVY MEDAL connects

They come from cities all over in Germany - from Hamburg to Munich, from Leipzig to Cologne. Three times a year they get together for rehearsal weekends in different places in the country to expand their repertoire. Since their founding in 2012, they have been united not only by their love of making music together, but also by the encounter among friends.


The special thing about HEAVY MEDAL is that all singers have won a medal with their quartet at one of the competitions of the German Barbershop Association BinG!. That's why this choir is so "heavyweight".

Here's an overview of the current quartets.

Our Quartets


Stop! Pause, get out and enjoy.

The four voices of the Barberpapas blend in barbershop arrangements of the most diverse genres to create a unique and unmistakable sound experience. Here you will find boiling hot love songs, schmaltzy romances, groovy grooves, exciting stories, whistling overtones and popping tags! The next concert of the Barberpapas will be just like always: glorious whimsy in musically formidable garb!


The male quartet from Dresden and Berlin, consists of Karl (tenor), Robert (lead), Kevin (baritone) and Markus (bass). Barbershop is their passion. They love to sing unnecessarily high, loud and/or long tags. Especially for long tags Robert has to do, because he can hold notes especially well and loud. The quartet was already founded in 2015, since January 2018 they sing together in this constellation and could so far sing the third place in the Coesfeld Cup and equal placement in the international Spanish championship. However, the most important thing for them is to have fun and just live good music.


In a place near the Loreley, the name of which I can only dimly recall, four jugglers met not long ago, those of those with a pitch in their pocket, a love of singing, a shared love of barbershop, and always a pint within reach to perform.
A bowl of soup with a little more mince than leek in it, most evenings spent in convivial company with friends, thoroughly invigorating, appealing musical works, and a certain penchant for chaos made each rehearsal weekend perfect.


Three ladies and a Brit: They sing the sound kisses with immense fun and almost frightening stamina - and cope with lots of love things and other problems of everyday life. Occasionally the flexible bass even clears his place for his identical twin sister.

La Boom

A cappella with sound and boom!

When we make an appearance, it's with a big boom - in the musical sense, of course. Even though we have only recently come together in this line-up, each of us already has many years of experience in barbershop a cappella singing as a quartet and chorus singer.

With 330 meters per second we also sing for you!


Obsession, ovation, orchestra, optimal, oppulent, on-the-rocks, Oscar-worthy, open-air, overtones or Oberwesel .... these are all wonderful terms with *O* , which the mixed quartet from NRW connects with music and barbershop singing. So no other name than 'O-Ton' came into question.

Original, right?


We are a mixed barbershop quartet from Munich and Leipzig. We sing wherever we feel like it and want to be heard. Also in competitions, held by BinG!, where we have already won silver and gold medals, most recently the gold medal at the great BinG! music festival 2018 . Our great strength is our thick friendship among ourselves, which always supports us in our harmonious sound and fun singing together. Unique is our voice distribution: bass and tenor are sung by the men, the middle voices are taken over by the ladies.


The male quartet from Kiel has now been singing together for over 35 years.
TAKE FOUR was a five-time German Barbershop Champion and represented Germany in the 1995 International Barbershop Competition and 2016 in the USA. The full-length program includes close harmony compositions from the barbershop and jazz genres, as well as pop standards and pieces by the Comedian Harmonists. If you listen to TAKE FOUR, you're "in for a treat"...all harmony, vocal elegance and moderated wit.
