Testimonials

 

"Vintage Mix sings close harmony so well, at such a young age, they force the world to realize that young singers are capable of creating mind blowingly great music!"

- Deke Sharon, American singer, arranger, composer, director, producer and teacher of a cappella music and the Music Producer for Pitch Perfect 1 and 2

 

"Vintage Mix is the best quartet that I’ve heard in my 17 years as a sound engineer on Fox & Friends.”

- Toba Potosky, Sound Engineer, Fox & Friends, New York 

 

"Working with the Vintage Mix singers for 2 amazing years early in their formation was one of the greatest joys of my life. Their unique sound comes, I believe, from their biology as quadruplets. They are attuned to one another, both vocally and mentally, such that they are constantly adjusting their performance to lift each sibling in the group. Not only is their singing sublime, they are charming, genuine people who radiate kindness. My life is better for the hours I spent with them singing, learning and laughing."

- Greg Ruffer, CEO - Boston Center for the Arts

 

"Since Vintage Mix participated in our International Convention in Pittsburgh 2015, these four young adults (yes quadruplets) have been entertaining our barbershop audiences all across the country with their joy of barbershop harmony and beautiful music.  They are an inspiration to all generations who love to sing and for those interested in singing for the first time”.

- Marty Monson, CEO -  Barbershop Harmony Society

 

"The great thing about Vintage Mix is their ability to appeal to every age group in the room. When these young adults perform, there is something for everyone”.

-Shawn York, Tenor - 2008 International Champion Quartet “OC Times", Owner/CEO Chick-fil-A in Corona, California

 

"Vintage Mix makes our oldest veterans feel so comfortable and joyful...their music is like a glimpse back at wonderful days gone by.  An Honor Flight day is even more magical for our veterans when they hear the beautiful harmonies of this amazing group of teenagers."  

- Stars and Stripes Honor Flight, honors all veterans by flying WWII, Korean War and terminally ill veterans from other conflicts to Washington, DC to visit their memorials

 

"Vintage Mix makes a real difference in real people's lives. I am on the Board of Directors for Stars and Stripes Honor Flight. We fly WWII and Korean War veterans to Washington DC to see their Memorials. The talented singers of Vintage Mix routinely come to the airport to welcome and celebrate our veterans.  Their interactions with our brave heroes is inspiring. When we show up at the airport to begin a long day of service and here the silky sounds of Vintage Mix echoing through the airport terminal we know that it is going to be a great day. The veterans routinely tell us that hearing Vintage Mix is one of the highlights of their entire day. The sweet and genuine sounds of Vintage Mix take America's heroes back to days that were optimistic and full of sunshine.The only things fuller than the sounds of Vintage Mix are the hearts of Ian, Kelsey, Anika, and Julia."
