What is Kicking Back 2 Barbershop? Kicking Back To Barbershop started in 2015 when I wanted to help the Youth Barbershop Quartet Competitors get to International. I got 11 Quartets together and recorded 11 non-contest songs and sold the album for $5 with an infinite donation ceiling. Kicking Back To Barbershop raised over $1850 for Harmony Foundation’s Scholarship for Youth competitors. Now this is the line up for this year’s album with 12 Quartets singing.

Funds: This year since there are more quartets, that means there are more songs to be licensed. Which also means that the production of the album will be higher. Last year I helped fund about $200-$300 to start the album with the help of Song Sponsors paying for the processing fee for royalties.

  1. $198.25 in Processing Fees

  2. $295.75 in Royalty Fees (9.1 cents per song download x 250 albums)

  3. $160 for custom hand drawn album artwork

  4. $654: Total

This year I’ll do Album Sponsors instead of Song Sponsors since the cost is greater this year. 12 Album Sponsors of $50 will financially start the album so that the rest of the album donations will be given to Harmony Foundation International. Last year we were able to donate over $1850 to Harmony Foundation, let’s try doubling that this year!
