Chorus Rep – Ronnie Rowston


Started barbershop singing in 1977 with a break from barbershop between 1984 and 1994. Positions held are chairman, regional rep., and sergeant at arms – in charge of club discipline! As Chorus Rep, if anyone has a problem within the club and comes to see me I will try to sort it out without  troubling the committee. As well as singing with Stockport I have sung with Rainy City, and the Northernaires in Holland. I currently sing with Phoenix Knights of Harmony in Bolton. I have attended five international conventions in America at Salt Lake City, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Pittsburgh and Nashville

Bill founded a skiffle band in the 50’s. Can you guess which one is him? He worked in the baking industry then, following an industrial injury, went on to run a contract cleaning company for 40 years. He often stands in front of the chorus and tells a joke. Sometimes the funniest ones are those he forgets the punch line to!
