Welcome back to the NVP tag of the week series! After a bit of a hiatus, we’re back with more tags for you. This week’s tag comes to us from the fabulous quartet Crossroads, 2009 International Barbershop Quartet champions and all-around cool guys. They just got done with a new album that just hit shelves a couple of days ago, and there are some very cool tracks on it, including: the 2009 song-of-the-contest “Lucky Old Sun”, a rip-snorting Aaron Dale arrangement of “Can’t Buy Me…

They took 4th in Tampa and are gearing up to do some damage this year in Las Vegas. They focus on performing 1/3rd barbershop, 1/3rd modern acapella, and…

At NVP rehearsals, we have a tradition of having one of our members teach the group a tag at the end of rehearsal.  I personally love hearing our chorus sing tags – the sound is so different than just doing them as a quartet.  At our rehearsal last night, our own Jayson Wilson taught us a tag with which I wasn’t familiar – the “Falling in Love is Grand” tag.  It starts with this cool minor cadence that uses a Chinese 7th to transition to major, and ends…
