I have been lucky enough to be able to sing Incredible Barbershop Harmony with the Land Of Legend Chorus for over 5 years now. I sang in High School (Tenor) in Mixed Chorus and Show Chorus group called Fantasy in Johnstown Ohio where I graduated in 1983. When I graduated High School I was dating my high school sweetheart Catharine. Shortly after my graduation we went our separate ways and 15 years later we met back up in Johnstown and haven’t been apart since. We have one daughter Destiny Mae who is in 8th grade at Licking Heights Central she plays the trumpet in the high school marching band and French horn in the 8th grade concert band. She also plays trumpet for the Licking County 4-H band and sings in 8th grade choir and in the Jr. High select choir.
I also have 2 other daughters... Jenna who is 25 lives in Minot North Dakota is married to Mike and has 2 Children Morgan and Tyler and Katie who is 22 and lives in Columbus. Catharine’s son Scott also has 2 children Gemini and Julius so I am Grandpa to 4.
I was also the parent of an Autistic child my son Kasey who passed away in 2004. I miss him every day and fell that he is with me always. My Grandpa Jack and Uncle Tim sang Barbershop up in Monroe Michigan and they were the first to introduce me to Barbershop Harmony. The First Quartet I ever saw sing was the 1994 International Quartet Champions Jokers Wild. I was hooked on the great harmony ever since. I didn’t join a chorus till 2008 and regret waiting that long to enjoy this ...the greatest Hobby.
I have worked at Aetna Insurance Company for going on 17 years now and am a HTML loader (think website maintenance work). I also sing Lead in the Singing Buckeyes Barbershop Chorus and am excited to be able to go to Toronto Canada to sing on the international stage in that chorus.
I also bowl in a few leagues and enjoy bowling with my Dad and other friends. I am now part of a new Barbershop Quartet “Four the Record” and am singing a new part of Baritone in that quartet and am excited to perform for the show this year.
I am honored to be elected Barbershopper of the Year for the Land of Legend Chorus and love singing with these guys from Newark and I also am the webmaster for our Chorus website and Administrator for the Chorus Facebook Page.
I am serving as the Secretary for the Chorus and feel proud to work hard for the chorus and our awesome hobby.
I would like to thank Bruce Tolle who invited me to come sing with the Chorus, all the guys who made me feel comfortable and Paula the director for her advice, encouragement and sharing her knowledge with me. Most Importantly I would like to thank my wife for putting up with me singing all these songs around the house and in the car so much that she can’t get our songs out of her head. And for putting up with me being gone lots of nights participating in this great Hobby.
Thanks to all… Jamie
