Gas House Gang was a barbershop quartet that won the 1993 SPEBSQSA international competition. They started singing as a group in 1987.

The quartet won the International Quartet Championship of the Barbershop Harmony Society in 1993. The Gas House Gang toured the United States extensively and performed around the world, singing with many musical groups, including The Chordettes, the King's Singers, and Chanticleer.

Members

Rob Henry, the quartet's baritone, was diagnosed with esophageal cancer on May 30, 2003, and died shortly thereafter on September 4, 2003. Several prominent barbershoppers helped fill in after Rob's death, including Mike Slamka (Power Play), Tony DeRosa (Keepsake and Platinum), Brandon Guyton (Four Voices), and D.J. Hiner (The Ritz), but on June 3, 2004, the quartet announced their retirement at the end of 2005.

Jim Henry [http://www.aoh.org/jimhenry.html] , Rob's younger brother, went on to direct the Ambassadors of Harmony in their victory at the 2004 international championship in Louisville, Kentucky.

Kipp Buckner started singing barbershop when he was 14. He also has had the honor of winning the International Champion Quartet Medal twice, once with the GHG and also in 1987 when he sang with the Interstate Rivals.

Rich Knight has sung with the Ambassadors of Harmony since the 70's. His smooth lyrical lead voice creates the defining sound of the GHG.
