About Us

Who are the ThunderTones?

The ThunderTones are a men’s a capella chorus in Huntington, West Virginia and a chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, or the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barbershop Quartet Singing in America (SPEBSQSA). They entertain and compete using four-part a capella arrangements typically in the Barbershop style. While the barbershop style was most popular more than 100 years ago, the chorus seeks to preserve it, enjoy it, and entertain with it in every form, from the cherished, classic barbershop standards to modern hits arranged in the style.

The ThunderTones want you to be a part of the fun.

What is Barbershop Music?

“Barbershop vocal harmony, as codified during the barbershop revival era (1930s–present), is a style of a cappella close harmony, or unaccompanied vocal music, characterized by consonant four-part chords for every melody note in a predominantly homophonic texture.” – Barbershop Harmony Society
