When you hear the words "Late Show", you probably either think of a Las Vegas lounge act or an after hours TV talk show. In fact, Late Show is an award winning a cappella quartet that has entertained audiences throughout the west. Late Show formed in November 2005, and after singing only a few chords together, Raymond, Jordan, Mike and Gabe knew they had something truly special.
Just four months later, singing in their very first contest in March 2006, Late Show won the Nor-Cal East/Northern-Nevada divisional championship and followed that with a 20th place finish at the 2006 international barbershop contest in Indianapolis! Then, just one year after singing their first few tags together in the Reno hospitality suite, the guys were crowned 2006 Far Western District Champions! In July 2007, Late Show was thrilled to place 13th in the world at the 2007 international contest in Denver, continuing their steady ascent to the top of barbershop quartet competition.
These four guys really enjoy creating music and hanging out together, but where "it's really at" for them is singing and performing for their loyal fans. It doesn't matter if it's for a crowd of thousands at a barbershop show or contest, or for an intimate group of five at the local pizza parlor at the end of an afterglow, Late Show loves to sing for and with people.
As long as there is someone to listen (and even when there's no one to hear!), they will sing their hearts out and wouldn't have it any other way!
