Joe Connelly, Three-time Gold Medal Winner: "This is the future of the Barbershop Harmony Society."

Patrick McAlexander: "I've always loved barbershop and I just became interested in looking at all the trivia and the history. It's like to know more is to make it more exciting."

And nothing could be more exciting than bonding with an international champion - the man known as Awesome Joe.
