Thursday Night is Cocktail Night

Posted on

Babershoppers are a fantastic bunch of people with SUCH an eclectic set of skills outside of our rehearsal nights.  Meet David Sangwell; not only does he have one of the most appropriate surnames in barbershop, but he is also a Flair Bartender and Mixologist – meaning he makes a MEAN cocktail  – and he is coming to Harmony Camp on Thursday night to serve us up some especially designed Barber-tails.

Check out his skills from his Youtube Channel.

Not only is David going to be there making some amazing drinks for us, but he is bringing his portable cocktail bar to serve us from 4pm on Thursday.

The amazingness, doesn’t stop there.  

Thanks to Catalyst PLB and, any profits from the sales of the cocktails will be used to set up a fund to support quartets heading to international competitions*.

Seriously – what a guy!
