Greg Kronlund 2016 Barbershopper of the Year
At the Harmony Kings annual Christmas Party/Installation, Greg Kronlund was named "Barbershopper of the Year for 2016!"
Greg's singing days go all the way back to third grade where he sang his first solo. Singing has always been a part of his life. His first "quartet” was a folk group called "The Trav'lers", that actually went on tour for 29 days.
For Greg's real job, he has been a disc jockey; worked for the NASCAR circuit in the Tri Cities, WA, and is currently working for Pierce College as a Program Assistant of PierceWorks! A Human Development/Career Transition Course.
It was back in the Tri cities where Greg sang with the Columbia River Chordsmen. Greg was also a member of the Rainier Valley Harmonizers and the Puyallup Valley Harmonizers prior to coming to the Harmony Kings. And we are so glad he came our way!!
Greg has been instrumental in many facets of our organization. He has taken on the role of President for two years. And he is able and willing to do it again for a third year. Greg has a way of getting things done. He does a fantastic job of setting goals for our organization and actually having them come to fruition.
Through Greg's steady leadership, Harmony Kings has grown in numbers; he has guided us in taking our example to "serve" the community. He has been instrumental in having our Harmony Kings host the Regional Leadership Academy. Greg is truly a valuable member of our Harmony Kings Family!
So it is with great honor and appreciation that we have named Greg Kronlund as our 2016 Barbershopper of the Year!!

Barbershopper of the Year 2015
Darrell Thompson is our March 2017 Barbershopper of the Month
Federal Way Harmony Kings Chapter is pleased to recognize Darrell Thompson as our March Barbershopper of the Month.
Darrell is relatively new to Barbershop, but not new to singing. Jim Fellows, a friend and new HK member himself, invited Darrell to join in 2014. Years before Harmony Kings, Darrell took a continuing education course called “Music For Men” at Pierce College where he sang baritone in one session and lead in the next. It’s Interesting to note, that Darrell began his Harmony Kings’ career as a baritone, but now lend his melodic voice the lead section.
Darrell works for Holland Brooks Builders as a Project Manager, and was able to use his skills for our recent fund raising auction for Harmony Xplosion and other chapter missions.
Darrell was able to use his love of deserts, and organizational skills to help our fund raising efforts. He was instrumental in heading up one of the many steering committees that made our auction a huge success.
We are proud to honor Darrell for his outstanding contribution to the auction committee, and his ability to deliver the right dessert to the right table at the right time. Seriously, Darrell demonstrated his ability to meet the challenges with grace and professionalism.
Darrell is active in many aspects of Harmony Kings, which includes serving on the board, assisting other committees, performing at community performances, participating in the Annual Division Convention, and the Harmony Kings annual show. Most recently he became the lead of a brand new quartet. He has also moved a few risers along the way.
It is with pride that Harmony Kings present our March BOTM award to Darrell Thompson.
