Back Bay Four Quartet
Back Bay Four formed in early 2001 and is made up of members of the Portland Downeasters chorus. The quartet has performed on the Portland, Brunswick and Waterville annual shows as well as many performances around the state.
They have made the decision not to compete, but still delight in entertaining audiences in concerts for all occasions. If your group is looking for quality Barbershop entertainment, please contact Cy Kendrick after the show by phone at 207-729-5201.
