The Olde Thyme Harmony Quartet formed in December 2009 when they registered with the Barbershop Harmony Society. You could think of this quartet as the "Generation Gap Quartet" as they range in age from 27 years old to 77 years old. Perhaps, you may think of them as the "Pitch-Pipeless Four" as the Tenor has Perfect Pitch and there is no need for a Pitch Pipe for tuning. Although new as a foursome, they have many years of quartet experience. Olde Thyme Harmony Quartet is a Hard Working quartet with the motivation to provide your event with the best Harmony in the house on any given night. All are members Lansing (MI) Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society. The quartet is BIG on Coaching and Competition to continue to improve on their quality of singing and their performance package. Their repertoire presently includes over 30 songs including, Barbershop Standards, Love Ballads and Up tunes as well as, Classic's, Irish songs and Show tunes. They have become a VERY entertaining quartet and the demand keeps growing. OTHQ has been Finalists in several recent Pioneer Dist. contest and placed 2rd in the Annual Bush League contest in Gaylord MI in 2014.

Singing LEAD is Don Horton, the olde timer in the group having been a Society member for 48 years. Don sings both LEAD & BARITONE and has sung in many quartets over the past 50 years. He is a Real Estate Broker and Appraiser and lives with his wife (of 56 plus years). Don's Love for Barbershopping began in a college quartet at Ferris State University (Ferris Institute in 1957). Don is the major spokesman for the quartet but is often backed up by surprises from other quartet members. Spontaneous Interplay can be VERY entertaining.

Singing BASS is Kel Scott the newest member having joined the quartet in October of 2015. Kel says, I sang in grade school middle school and high school choruses as well as church. I have performed some stage work in high school including Gilbert and Sullivan productions and the musical Brigadoon. I also sang for the University of Wisconsin general choir. I have taken piano lessons for about 6 years. I am not that good but can plink away as you have been able to see. I have sang for weddings and I love karaoke singing mostly Bobby Darin and Frank Sinatra.

Singing BARITONE and occasional LEAD is Dr. Tim Oliver. Tim has been a member of the Society and the Lansing Chapter for the past 11 years. He and Don sang together in the Sufficient Grounds quartet for 8 years. They also sang together in the District Senior's Championship Quartet "Weekend Agenda" prior to teaming up in the Olde Thyme Harmony Quartet and switching parts. Tim is a former member of the MSU, Spartan Marching Band. GO GREEN!! He received his medical degree from Wayne State University and completed residency in Family Practice in Saginaw. He is a member of the medical staff at Memorial Healthcare Center and is part owner of Northside Family Practice in Owosso. He and his wife Marcia reside in Owosso. Tim's Love for Barbershopping began when he sang LEAD in a quartet in the fabulous MUSIC MAN performance by the Owosso Community Players about 13 years ago.

Last but NOT least singing TENOR in the quartet is Jacob Welty. The baby of the quartet at 27 years of age is without a doubt the most talented of the quartet. Jacob lives in Fenton Michigan with his Mom and Dad and 5 brother and sisters. Jacob is a handyman by trade AND DOES IT ALL. Musically he does it ALL too. Jacob has perfect pitch and the voice range to sing ALL four parts. He is a self-trained musician who has arranged several songs for the quartet.

Olde Thyme Harmony Quartet has been entertaining for all venues over the Midwest having performed all over Michigan and in Wisconsin, Ohio, Ontario Canada and Rochester NY. The quartet is proud of their consistent 5 Star Ratings with Gigmaster's and have performed on many Barbershop Chapter Shows, Corporate Events, Holiday Parties, House Parties, Sales Promotions, Weddings and would be happy to entertain you at your next venue.

Quartet was hired as a surprise for my parents 60th Anniversary. They were entertaining, talented, friendly, on time, and made my parents day all that much more special. All of the coordinating was done from out of state and was easy and effortless to do. They were easy to get in touch with and quick to respond. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to be entertained with some wonderful singing and showmanship. Two thumbs up, way up...for the wonderful memories my parents will treasure for a very long time.

Hi Leah: Thank You so much for the GREAT RATING. The situation was a bit challenging for both of us but it appears it went very well. We had a chance to chat a bit with both Mike and Onalee after our performance and that was nice. Great Couple and still enjoying life. It is obvious they are LOVED by family and friends. Keep us in mind for any of your future entertainment needs. Sing Cheerily Yours Don Horton Olde Thyme Harmony Quartet

Hi MaryLynn: Thanks you for the kind word. The evening was hard on all of us due to the accommodations at The Masters. However, YOU, their management and Olde Thyme Harmony Quartet all worked well together to make the event go SPECIAL for you MOM and that was the GOAL. Thanks for having Olde Thyme Harmony Quartet. Sing Cheerily Yours Don Horton LEAD/Contact
