Summer 2015, Three ‘n’ Easy was born in a moment of serendipity. By 2016 they had won the Seniors gold medal at Convention.
Paul Gidney (Lead) has been in barbershop for over 25 years including a spell in New Zealand. He has over 20 years of experience in competitive quartets and, in his most recent foursome Soundcheck, won the senior gold medal, with John, that took them to Long Beach, California for the BHS world championships. Paul is retired, cherishes his grandchildren Poppy & Millie, loves travel and the odd glass of wine.
John Clarke (Bass) started singing later in life but has been an active member of many a capella groups, e.g. Monday Mondays. From Piertown Chorus, he moved on to Cottontown, winning bronze & silver medals and eventually five golds. He has sung with several quartets, including bronze- and silver-winning Celebration then gold with Paul in Soundcheck. Now retired, John and wife Mary spend lots of time whizzing along the M62 to visit their two daughters and granddaughter.
Paul Tatton (Baritone) began barbershop 33 years ago and has competed with various quartets, being placed seventh on many occasions. Whilst bass with Cottontown, he switches to baritone in Three ‘n’ Easy. Paul’s wife Dee sings with Sweet Adelines champions Heartbeat Chorus and son Scott is baritone with Cottontown and Hustle quartet.
Gary Roussak (Tenor) sang in SATB choirs for 25 years but the barbershop bug bit him in 2009. Although baritone in chorus, he relishes adding the tenor ‘icing’ to Three ‘n’ Easy. With only five years quartet experience, he admits he is the ‘baby’, but says “I’m younger than them!”. Gary & wife Lynn dote on their grandchildren Florence and Beatrice.

    As social secretary of the Bollin Probus club Wilmslow I organize lunches, usually on a Wednesday, at local restaurants such as the Deanwater Hotel.
    I wonder if a quartet or more would be available to entertain us for say up to about 20/30 minutes following our lunch.
    It would be at about 3pm.
    Of course the cost would be of interest to see if we could afford such a an entertainment.
    If a telephone number could be provided and a convenient time to call I would be very pleased to make contact.
