Alliance barber shop quartet was formed in January 2004 after the quartet got together over a long weekend to try out their combination of voices. Bass singer Danny travelled all the way from his home in Canberra ACT to Perth for the occasion and found it was well worth the effort. The Quartet soon realised the sound they were making was without a doubt good enough to warrant the formation of a new quartet.

In June of that same year, after only three weekend rehearsals , the quartet entered and won the AAMBS Western Region quartet contest with a record high score. Later that year the quartet travelled to Christchurch in New Zealand to take part in the Pan Pacific Quartet Competition against an international field of groups from New Zealand, Hawaii, the West Coast of America, Japan and other parts of Australia. The Quartet was awarded with the silver medal.

In October of 2005 Alliance had reached what was described as the pinnacle of the men’s barbershop harmony art form in Australia by being awarded a first place gold medal in the Open Quartet Contest at the biennial AAMBS National Convention.

Later on this year Alliance will be defending their Quartet Champion title at the AAMBS National Convention at the Darling Harbour Convention Centre in Sydney. Alliance are also planing to begin work on their long awaited debut CD.

Alliance Barber Shop Quartet is:

Ian Mulholland
Ian sings Tenor in the quartet. He has now won two AAMBS National Quartet Contest gold medals, and has also competed internationally. Ian was Co-Director and then Director of the Men in Harmony chorus for 4 years, before joining Vocal Evolution. In between, Ian is AAMBS Judges Coordinator and a Music Category Judge. He has also served as AAMBS National Vice President of Music. In his spare time Ian also arranges music and manages to fit in his family, which consists of a wife and two children, job as a geologist, enjoyment of playing golf, and other quartet Bad Habits.


Adrian Gimpel
Adrian sings Lead. Before winning the National Quartet Gold Medal with Alliance he had competed twice before with other quartets at national level, each time finishing in the top five. He is certified as a Presentation Category Judge in the AAMBS judging program and is currently also the President of the Vocal Evolution chorus. Adrian also participates on the YIBDI Committee promoting voacal harmony singing amongst young people. In the career which actually helps pay his bills, Adrian works as a Public Servant. He also has a wonderful family, comprising of a lovely, charming and very understanding wife and three children.


Richard Reeve
Richard sings Baritone and is a relative newcomer to barbershop singing, having experienced his first competition with the Vocal Evolution chorus in 2005. Richard arrived in Perth in 2005 having been introduced to barbershop the previous year by the Sydney Harmony chorus. He is no stranger to music or the stage, however, having been around amateur theatre since childhood. In his spare time Richard is completing a master’s degree in natural resource economics and works for the Western Australian government. Richard is the only member of the group still single, so feel free to direct all of your romantic adoration towards him.


Dan Millgate
Dan sings bass. He has now won two National AAMBS Quartet gold medals as well as two silver medals. Dan has previously served as the Music Director of The Canberra Chordsmen and is also certified as a Singing Category Judge within the AAMBS judging program. He flies into rehearsals in Perth from Canberra, where he lives with his partner Lidija (sorry girls, he’s already spoken for) and his two lovely daughters and works as a Public Servant. In his spare time Dan likes to play golf badly, watch The Simpsons, and come up with new and exciting ways to irritate his fellow quartet members.
