Common Bond formed in 2018 from members of the Downeasters Chorus with a common bond of friendship and 4-part harmony. Sam Wainright, Tenor, has been singing barbershop for 24 years, enjoys hiking, sailing, birdwatching, and recently retired from teaching marine biology at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. He and his wife Patty live on Peaks Island with their parrot Molly. John Gross, Lead, has been a member of the Barbershop Harmony Society for 16 years and has sung with several quartets. He is a man of varied interests from golfing, skiing, woodworking, to flying as a private pilot. John is retired from his veterinary medical practice and lives in Winthrop with his wife, Susan. Carl Cappello, Baritone, has been singing quartet-style music for more than 35 years as a member of several choruses and quartets. He is a retired hospital administrator, resides in Portland, and values spending time with his extended family. Bill Bedford, Bass, lives in Old Orchard Beach with his wife Doris. He is a retired IBM software engineer. Bill sang with the Colby Eight in college, and sang and played bass with the folk trio the GreenMountainBoys until 2010; this is his first barbershop quartet.
