The Martini Quartet

Any event would be incomplete without music

Music plays a huge role to ensure an event’s success. It transforms the atmosphere and gives your event an alluring charm – whether the event is a wedding party, a dinner, a corporate event or an extravagant party. If you love great events, then you most certainly know the importance of a good music performance, which is what the talented celebrity singers of the Martini Quartet bring to your event. Also known as the “Queens of Harmony”, the four ladies bring beauty, passion, and crispness to a performance. Their voices soar in pure and tight harmony, bringing energy, soul, and inspiration to any event, leaving guests thrilled beyond measure.

The Quartet was formed back in 2007 at the home of Sandy Marron. At its founding, brought together the four voices of singers Sandy Marron (tenor), DeAnne Haugen (baritone) and Shannon Harris (bass), with Lisa Myers as the Lead. Over the course of the years, two of the members retired and the quartet brought on two more members, leading to the present composition of Shannon Harris at bass, Corinna Garriock at tenor, DeAnne Haugen at baritone and Michelle Shoemaker as the lead. This is the group that was crowned as the 2012 champions of the Sweet Adelines International’s International Quartet Champions!

The group of celebrity singers specializes in the Barbershop harmony, which is a unique style of acapella that consists of consonant four-part chords flowing harmoniously over a texture that is predominantly homophonic. The best part about this style of music is how the tenor voice part singles slightly above the lead, while the bass harmonizes the notes, creating a very wonderful, very entertaining and very versatile style of music that is perfect for different events.

The Barbershop music style is also characterized by songs with clear lyrics and melodies which can be easily sung along. This style also features a standard meter and a balanced and symmetrical form. The singers infuse the music performance with a precise intonation, a fullness of sound and a high degree of harmony and vocal skill to create a musical masterpiece. The performance also includes visual and musical methods to convey the theme of the song and pass the passion and emotions of the music to the audience, resulting in a truly thrilling musical experience. The musical delivery is done from the heart and is well balanced by the stylistic presentation which seamlessly combines together the visual and musical aspects of the performance to create and maintain illusions suggested by the music.
