About
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 29 years old to 79 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. Olde Thyme Harmony Quartet has performed over the Mid-West including, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Wisconsin and Illinois.

Singing BASS is Don Horton, the olde timer in the group having been a Society member for 50 years. Don sings BASS, 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 Sandy (of 59 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 LEAD, & BARI is Paul Nolte the newest member having joined the quartet in July of 2017. Paul says, I sang in a high school quartet and is a 28 year member of the Barbershop Harmony Society. He also sings with Memory Lane and Bluetonium quartets. He also performs single as a ONE MAN BAND called NOSTALGIA Broadcasting Company (live Music & Comedy). Paul will add some interesting Fun Variety to our performances.


Singing BARITONE and occasional LEAD is Dr. Tim Oliver. Tim has been a member of the Society and the Lansing Chapter for the past 15 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. 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 17 years ago.

Last but NOT least singing TENOR & occasional BASS in the quartet is Jacob Welty. The baby of the quartet at 29 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. He sings a Beautiful solo on "IF" the 1970's song made popular by the group called BREAD

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.

The OTHQ gave a wonderful performance at our church. We had a large number of attendees (110 compared with the average of 90-95) and many of them let me know how much they enjoyed the music and the overall performance. They encouraged me to get the Quartet back for a future concert, and I'm happy to do so. Don and the other members of OTHQ were delightful and I enjoyed hosting them. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting an excellent barbershop quartet to perform at an event.

These gentlemen are the real deal!! They really know how to harmonize and perform! I booked them forth cocktail hour portion of my 1920s themed wedding. They accommodated both the theme and my wedding colors perfectly! My Husband's grandma made two song requests and they knew both of them and serenaded her. They also prepared a few songs specially for the me and the groom. Their voices along with the songs they singed moved me to tears- really!! Excellent performance and professionalism. Highly recommend!

We had OTHQ perform at our Christmas Party, and they were SUPERB!!! The party took place at Chelsea Retirement Community, and OTHQ were truly the delight of the evening. There performances were excellent, and they also interacted with guests and led a sing along. Truly a pleasure having them perform. They go above and beyond to make guests feel included and happy, and exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be having them at future events! Thank you!!!

Olde Thyme Harmony Quartet was both excited and honored to have the opportunity to perform for Chelsea Retirement Community's Annual Christmas Party. The event was well planned and all guests were in a festive mood. They responded well to our style of entertainment. We shared many experiences with some of the guests regarding some of our songs and their personal experiences with these songs. We left the evening feeling Warm and Fuzzy about our evening with CRC. Thanks Abigail & Staff you all made us feel so Welcome. We enjoyed singing with some of your Staff Members and the Guests were thrilled to see the Staff having such a Good Time. Sing Cheerily Yours

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.
