Negotiating terms with the barbershop quartet. Discovering barbershop
quartet are skillful negotiators. Paying barbershop quartet.
If you could travel back in time to The Bronx in 1979 to tell the assembled hip-hop pioneers that their music would one day utilise the services of a barbershop quartet, you'd be the recipient of some very queer looks indeed. But that's part of what Kormac's Big Band delivers. The multi-membered extension of the solo work of Dublin's DJ Kormac, the band have been described by Radio 1's Annie Mac as "the most bizarre set-up I've ever seen - but it really works". The 11-piece's live shows really rock the joint, providing a lively, vivid incarnation for their leader's tunes - the barbershop quartet are joined by drums, double bass, trombone, clarinet, trumpet and banjo. But at the head of it all, calling the shots and conducting proceedings, is Kormac himself, the master of this new kingdom where scratching meets banjo. Who'd have ever thunk it? Not those guys in The Bronx, that's for sure.
