C NILE SOUND-a very senior quartet


Bruce Beyne (Tenor) has been a South Bay chapter member for over 35 years.  Bruce is an accomplished musician and has a college degree in music. In real life, Bruce is a semi-retired computer programmer that supports his true love, which is singing.

Denny Lawrence (Lead) is a 26 year barbershopper, life long singer and occasional clarinetist. He began singing harmony to songs from a book out of the piano bench as a small boy and sang in random barbershop quartets in college. He is now retired from an engineering career that often interrupted time for his real love of quartet singing. 

Karl Jacobs (Baritone) has been singing barbershop harmony for over 30 years.  Karl plays the organ and piano. Karl originally sang bass and has performed in numerous quartets over the years. Karl is a retired cartoonist and sometimes jumps into a character in the middle of a quartet performance whether we like it or not.

Rick Llewelyn (Bass) began singing barbershop in 1978 and has been an active quartet guy ever since; originally a lead, he moved to bass about 10 years ago. Rick is retired as a maintenance supervisor with a major airline.
