2017 Rivertown Sound Schedule:


The Rivertown Sound Quartet:
St. Louis, Missouri
EMAIL: rivertownsound@yahoo.com


We love to sing four part harmony! Back in 1985 various members of The St. Louis #1 Chapter Chorus got together to sing as a quartet. We decided to form The Rivertown Sound Quartet - inspired by the great variety of music from our hometown, St. Louis, Missouri. As faithful members of the Barbershop Harmony Society (SPEBSQSA), we are dedicated to preserving good singing and four part harmony. However, while we continue to sing traditional songs from the "turn of the century", more and more audiences have asked us to perform songs from the 1950 's and 1960's. As a result, we have become one of St. Louis' premiere "Doo Wop Quartet" and are honored to hold that position.   We usually sing without a band - just four voices making the music. When we do sing with a band, it's the great Mid South Revival Band of Steve Davis. See below for more on Steve and the Band. We feel The Rivertown Sound  has developed into a unique singing ensemble.

BELOW is our schedule from 2017. We keep track of all of our performances from the past 20+ years. We are so grateful to all of the people who have welcome us into their homes, restaurants, convention halls, and theaters for so many years.
