Rocket City Chorus is proud to have the following quartets associated with our chorus. We endorse all of them as excellent singers and entertainers, suitable for any occasion...
The Rocketeers registered as a quartet with the Barbershop Harmony Society in August 2006. With all members working on Redstone Arsenal, and Huntsville being "The Rocket City", the Rocketeers was the final choice of quartet names.
Through their short history together the Rocketeers have performed at various events to include Decatur Civic Chorus 2007 production of the Music Man and a couple of shows presented by Decatur Civic Chorus, singing the National Anthem for the Huntsville Stars home games, Patriot's Day ceremonies on Redstone Arsenal, Veteran's Day Parade, Huntsville's Memorial Day 2017 ceremony at Veteran's Park, Panoply Arts Festival, Huntsville's Concerts in the Park, Madison's Gazebo concert series, Decatur's Concert by the River series, Athens's Concerts on the Square series, Huntsville's Sidewalk Arts Stroll 2013, Huntsville Women's and Children's Hospital Children's Ward, various nursing homes and assisted living centers, several local high schools, North Alabama Hospice, several local churches, and private parties.
The Rocketeers also auditioned for Huntsville's Home Grown Talent contest and was selected as a finalist. Their motto is "Keep the Whole World Singing" and are dedicated toward the preservation of the Barbershop Quartet Singing art form with lightheartedness and joy. We try not to take ourselves too seriously and just enjoy everything for what it is. Contact AD Barksdale at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jim Savage at email@example.com for availability of the quartet.

Audio Radiance has been singing for over a decade. New members to the quartet are Marc on lead and David on tenor. JD and Jerry have been singing barbershop for decades. The guys enjoy singing at chapter events, parties, Barbershop Quartet Competitions, Christmas events, and visiting hospitals. Enjoy the sound of tight, barbershop harmony and let Audio Radiance sing at your next event.
How did we get the name "Audio Radiance?" A DJ made a mistake in pronouncing a phrase, one of our guys heard it and thought it would make a good name for a quartet.
Audio Radiance competed at the Dixie District Fall 2018 Contest. We sang "Blue Velvet" and "Nobody Knows What A Red Headed Mama Can Do", both were fun songs to sing. We are already preparing for the Dixie District Fall 2019 Contest. Come see us perform at the Rocket City Chorus's Summer Show Tunes Show.
This quartet was originally formed in 2011 with Tom Reed - Baritone, Collin Bagwell - Bass, Lloyd Unfred - Tenor and Frank Houck – Lead as the original members. As the quartet matured changes occurred. Lloyd was replaced by Brenden Leonard. Tom left the quartet and Collin moved to Baritone. Dick Savage was added to fill the Bass position. Since Collin was holding a position with the Dixie District and then was elected as President of our local chapter, he left the quartet to devote more time to the office. He was replaced at Baritone by Ken Reed. Brenden decided to get married and moved to Florida and was replaced by Donovan DeArment. In 2018 we welcomed two new members, David Gilfilen on Baritone and Jim Pristle on Tenor. Extended Chords has sung during the chorus performances at Panoply, Cabaret, Assisted Living Facilities, Birthday Parties, Singing Valentines, and Christmas Shows over the years.
