Acappella Barbershop Quartet.
Wax Lyricals barbershop quartet was formed in 2012 by former members of Bournville Barbershop with singers from Birmingham City Choir. The group specialises in the classic barbershop repertoire and can bring a touch of real old-school charm to any event! The songs are varied and full of rich close-harmony singing; from up-beat toe tappers to heart-warming ballads and songs of love.
The boys can perform acoustically for a more intimate performance or can provide amplification for larger venues. It is also often possible to specially rearrange your favourite song to be performed in the barbershop style, adding a unique touch to your event. Whatever the event, Wax Lyricals guarantee to bring a smile and that feel-good factor to your special occasion!
In addition to the barbershop songs, Joe and John are both talented and experienced event pianists and can provide great value jazz and classical piano.
Joe’s choral training began as a chorister at Birmingham Cathedral, from where he then went on to sing with various choirs and organisations. Joe was also assistant director at Bournville Young Singers from 1998 to 2008, with whom he toured many European capital cities and performed in venues such as Notre Dame and Brussels Cathedral. He has been Musical Director at The Number 8 Theatre Pershore and was nominated Best Musical at the 2010 NODA awards with West Side Story and followed this up with a win in 2012 with The Secret Garden.

Toby has been singing in choirs up and down the country for over twenty years, including singing solos and in small groups at Salisbury, Liverpool, Norwich and Gloucester cathedrals, amongst others.
