Contest Scores

The Crush

The Crush was formed in 2006, and just one year later earned a Silver Medal in the BHS International Collegiate Barbershop Quartet Contest. In July of 2009, The Crush was fortunate enough to appear in their first BHS International Semi-Finals Round, finishing 18th among competitive quartets from around the world. In March of 2010 Josh took over the lead spot from Patrick Headtler who took over the lead spot of Masterpiece (2008 FWD Champs). In the fall of 2010, The Crush outscored the competition by quite a margin to capture the FWD Quartet Championship.

Comprised of four energetic men in their 20s and based out of Orange County, CA., The Crush is known for their tight, bright harmonies and youthful, toe-tapping energy. They are working to become a household name with barbershop and a cappella fans throughout the country!

Music performed by the group consists of barbershop, swing and vocal jazz arrangements influenced by the Big Band and Swing genres popular during the 1920's, 30's and 40's.
