Heatwave

Heatwave

Heatwave began in 2014 with 4 friends of the Spirit of Phoenix. Lead - Marco Teti, Bass - Rodney Brandt, Baritone - Kent Pyper, and Tenor - Mark Spriggs. We went to our first contest after about 6 rehearsals. In 2015, we were fortunate to travel to Harmony University where we were coached by some of our favorite barbershoppers; including Shawn Divine, Alex Rubin, and Rich Knight. In the spring contest of 2016, we tried switching Lead and Baritone, although that did not really affect our scores all that much, it made more sense. After that contest, our Bass needed to spend some time with family, so we brought on a new bass - Jim Hansen. We also made the decision that our next contest we were going to dress like cows and do 2 parodies. So in the 2016 Fall contest, we mooved the audience with our renditions of "If I were a Chick-fil-A Cow" and "Come Fry with Me" as cows. In the Division contest of 2017, we were fortunate to score high enough to make it to District without having to wait for the wild-card announcement. We are ready and excited for our Fall Contest in Bakersfield.
