Alley Barbers - Mayor of Bath 091215Shobass KISTfestShobass France 1 blurred

ShoBASs is a male voice close harmony group based in the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath, UK. It is run by Tim Snowden (Tenor and Counter-tenor) and all its members are former members of the Alley Barbers (the University of Bath student group also conducted by Tim). Some of our core singers are now based in London, so we frequently travel across the South of England (and beyond) to sing!

Our tagline is “close harmony for all occasions” and we have sung for a wide variety of events: from royal audiences to burlesque nights; from hen parties to wedding ceremonies; from private serenades to grand receptions for 200 people. No matter how big or small your event, we are happy to perform as a formal element to your special occasion, as background music as guests arrive or even as a surprise ‘flash mob’. It’s up to you.

We have performed in some interesting locations too including France, Spain & Ireland. 2017 was our sixth year appearing at the WOMAD festival and there is even talk of a possible gig in China next year!

Our music ranges from traditional barbershop to Beatles songs, with a little classical music, the odd madrigal, some spirituals, a host of love songs and even some rock and roll along the way.
