RENAISSANCE is Phoenix's newest Senior Barbershop Quartet. Formed just over a year ago, the quartet consists of John Fynmore, Tenor; Fraser Brown, Lead; Gary Steinkamp, Baritone; and Rick Wells, Bass. Renaissance recently entered the Far Western District Quartet Contest and won the 2017 Far Western District Senior Quartet Championship.
John Fynmore has sung in many different quartets over the years, the last couple of which were with Fraser Brown (Dazzle and Audacity).
Fraser Brown is a 50 year barbershopper who has sung in several quartets, most of which have competed at the International level. Two of his quartets (Remember When and SRO) achieved top ten levels, and SRO achieved the top five level four times.
Gary Steinkamp is a 50+ year barbershopper who has also sung in several well-known quartets, the most popular of which were Music Appreciation 101 and SRO (with Fraser Brown). He also sang in Finale and Momentum, both of which were District Quartet champions and International competitors.
Rick Wells is best known as the Bass of Remember When and Applause, both with Fraser Brown. Rick has been inactive for the past few years due to business commitments, but is happy to be back singing again.
