    2014 World Barbershop Quartet Champions

    Musical Island Boys Win Gold in Las Vegas

    The Musical Island Boys are the 2014 International Barbershop Quartet Gold Medal Champions. This World Championship is the biggest possible award the boys can win in the field of barbershop quartet singing.

    As they say in the Barbershop Harmony Society, "Once a Champion, always a Champion"! This means the name, "Musical Island Boys", goes into the History Books - never to be used as a competitive barbershop quartet name again. To have accomplished a dream the boys set out to achieve while in High School twelve years ago, is a great honour, and the highest accolade the competitive barbershop foursome can receive. They would like to thank their family, friends, coaches & support groups for their unending support.

  • Musical Island Boys

    New Zealand's International Award-Winning Barbershop Quartet

    The Musical Island Boys are an a capella quartet, who combine four-part harmonic excellence with the class and elegance of their Pacific roots, delivering high-energy performances to audiences worldwide. Their talent for entertaining and inspiring internationally with their soaring harmony is backed by a rock solid foundation of over 50 years of combined, real-world experience as International performers.

    The quartet has received countless National and International Barbershop awards, and are three-time National Barbershop Quartet champions, smashing NZ record books each time they have competed. The boys won Gold at the 2004 Pan Pacific Competition, and in 2006 made history, securing World Championship U25 Gold in Indianapolis, being the first quartet from outside of the United States to capture the prestigious trophy.

    The boys are now the current 2014 World Champions, having beaten a field of over 50 of the best quartets in the World in Las Vegas. This is the highest possible award in Barbershop, and there is no bigger accolade than this!

    The quartet continues to deliver dazzling performances of vocal range and skill, entertaining both young and old with their dynamic polyphony and immaculate delivery of the craft. International barbershop audiences as far reaching as Sweden, Holland, Korea, Japan, Australia, and throughout the world have enjoyed the rich tapestry of sound created by the quartet. Their commitment to personal excellence, as well as their infectiously energetic style of performance makes the Musical Island Boys one of the most distinctive and unique quartets in the World today.

    First they became the best in the city; then the best in the country; and finally, this year they climbed to the peak of the barbershop singing world, winning the international contest and becoming one of the best barbershop quartets in the world.

    But how do four boys from a small suburb called Tawa succeed internationally at the very highest level of their craft? It was far from a straightforward journey, and they didn't do it alone; in fact, their career exudes all the hallmarks of a truly remarkable story.

    From mentoring school students on the islands of Vanuatu to giving voice lessons on a luxury cruise liner, relive the adventures of the quartet through song at Homecoming on Saturday 20 December.

    Come and celebrate with the Musical Island Boys, the 2014 International barbershop quartet champions, as they recount their twelve-year journey from local schoolyard crooners to international award winners.
