Brian Callaghan – Bass (3rd from L)
Brian has been singing bass since 1988 with the Thames Valley Chorus, a top 10 UK Chorus since they became a founder member of the British Association of Barbershop Singers in 1974.
Brian has been a member of 4 successful quartets along the way, all of which have achieved top 20 status in national competitions.
Married to Christine in 1969, with 4 sons, and now 5 grandchildren, pleased to be fully retired and concentrating on singing well, and playing golf badly.
Gary Evans – Lead (2nd from L)
Gary spent many years in the airline business and during his travels to the USA discovered the wonders of four-part harmony singing. At that time, the late 70's, barbershop singing was just starting up in the UK and Gary was delighted to find a local group, the Thames Valley Chorus, and went along - just for a listen. More than 30 years later he's still singing with them and enjoying this wonderful style of music.
Gary met his wife, Caroline, through work so he says he'll always be grateful to the airline for introducing him to a life of harmony – both marital and musical !
Gary sings the lead line, which is the melody - and lets the other three guys do the fancy bits!
Martin Proctor – Tenor (L)
Martin has been involved in professional music all his working life, as a percussionist (is that a real musician!) and as a singer, 22 years of that time with the military band of The Scots Guards.
Having now found the joy of a capella & barbershop style singing, his enjoyment (some say obsession! ) has been officially recognised by his lovely wife Jacquie who has nicknamed him Barberpaedia for his relentless quest for knowledge!
Martin is delighted to be the tenor of this quartet and hopes you enjoy all we have to offer
Peter Leverett – Baritone (R)
Attended a recruitment course at Thames Valley Chorus eight years ago and loved this style from day one. Chuffed to be singing with Timeless. Pete sings a harmony part, baritone, the glue that holds it all together. Problem is he has to rehearse well away from the rest of the family - sadly not very pretty on its own!
Married to Sarah with 2 grown-up daughters. Been a sportsman all of his life having opened the batting for the village cricket team for 25 years. He says he now also plays golf - badly.
