Welcome to the Harmony Kings website!
For over 50 years the Federal Way Harmony Kings have been performing tight four-part harmony throughout the South Puget Sound (WA) area. From civic events to birthdays, from sporting events to singing valentines, you can always count on the Harmony Kings to provide a quality and fun musical experience.

The Harmony Kings perform at many events throughout the year, as well as sing in several barbershop competitions. We are a non-profit organization that contributes to the community through our international society, the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS), and our local organization, the Evergreen District.

Lanny Gleason 2015 Barbershopper of the Year
Congratulations are due to Lanny Gleason for being named the 2015 Harmony Kings Barbershopper Of The Year!
We are proud to recognize Lanny for his hard work and dedication behind the scenes. Recently he has held the position of Communications VP and Chorus Manager. Lanny has also held the positions of membership and chapter development. Mid-way through 2015 he took over the duties of Chapter Secretary.
As our Chorus Manager Lanny successfully arranged and organized over 30 Community Performances in 2015; including the chorus audition for America’s Got Talent. Balancing these activates while holding a board position at the same time is an amazing feat, and Lanny handles his duties with tremendous enthusiasm.
A member since 2005, Lanny is a valuable member of the Federal Way Chapter. Lanny is always ready to jump up and help; he is one of our "un-sung" heroes. This is Lanny’s second BOTY award! We truly appreciate all the things Lanny Gleason does to make Chapter life more enjoyable.
The Harmony Kings have been awarding a Barbershopper Of The Year Award for over 50 years! What a wonderful way to say thank you to our hard-working members.
Ken Antonius is our July 2016 Barbershopper of the Month
Federal Way Harmony Kings Chapter is pleased to recognize Ken Antonius as our July Barbershopper of the Month.
Ken Antonius joined the Federal Way Harmony Kings in 1999 and has been active ever since. Ken has spent most of his 17 years serving in a leadership role with the Chapter. He was Chapter President in 2007, has served as Immediate Past President, Board Member-at Large and Board Member. Ken took on the task of Show Chairmen in both 2006 and 2007.
If we need to set up, tear down, or move risers from one location to another, Ken is always on hand to get the project started and completed. Ken is also in charge of the “Cookie Rooster” (a typo from the past that lingers even today) and makes sure that Tuesday night snacks are ready for the Chapter meeting. In addition, Ken proved quite the chief as he volunteered to work the Harmony Kings U.S. Open Concession stand.
Ken has sponsored two men into barbershop including his Grandson Ty. Ken’s wife also helps the chapter by brewing the coffee and setting up the “snack bar”. When it comes to Singing Valentines Ken is always ready to put together a quartet and sell Valentines to support Chapter benevolences.
Ken is responsible for the Chapters participation in the “Oh Say Can You Sing” contest in 2015 at the Puyallup Fair. Ken helped the Chapter win a spot on the 2015 Patti Labelle performance, and organized the 2016 effort. With extremely short notice Ken prepared the chapter for the audition video. We recognize Ken for all his hard work every month of the year.
It is with pride that Harmony Kings present our July BOTM award to Ken Antonius.
