Welcome to the Sunshine Statesmen!

The Sunshine Statesmen Barbershop Chorus are members of Barbershop Harmony Australia, and as such are part of the Barbershop Harmony Society, a worldwide community of singers dedicated to a cappella (unaccompanied by instrument) singing, in the barbershop four part harmony style.


Our chorus began in 1990 and has entertained audiences throughout the Sunshine Coast consistently since that time. We sing for many organisations at many venues. We perform at barbershop conventions in many areas of Australia and at numerous formal, informal and charity events on the Sunshine Coast.

Our repertoire includes songs covering many decades from Chauncey Olcott’s “My Wild Irish Rose” written in 1899, to Elton John’s “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” 1994. Here is an audio of us singing this song live in 2015: https://youtu.be/pvh37nyaafA.
