Beach Music
Stories of a Barbershop Quartet
by André Brillaud

Beach Music: Stories of a Barbershop Quartet is a collection of fun, memorable, and entertaining vignettes from the fifteen years author André Brillaud has been a member of the barbershop quartet, Beach Music. The group “sang on beaches, boats, and battleships, in restaurants, a muffler shop, private homes, and many different institutions and locations.” With each new gig came an adventure, and here Brillaud shares many, with humour, wit, and humility. Readers interested in learning about the origins and features of the musical genre will enjoy the glimpses into the past and the snippets of advice. Full of short, snappy tales, Beach Music: Stories of a Barbershop Quartet will entertain music lovers and memoir readers alike.
