Reminisce with us at our 55th Annual Show on June 25! Our special guests will be Flipside Quartet, the Evergreen District IV champions and on their way to the Barbershop Harmony Society's international contest in July. And of course, we'll feature the Harmony Kings Chorus and quartets. For more information, please visit our Annual Show webpage.
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.
To attend a performance, check out our Event Calendar page. And if you'd like to book the chorus for a performance, click on Request a Performance.
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.
Dave Gale is our May 2016 Barbershopper of the Month
Federal Way Harmony Kings Chapter is pleased to recognize Dave Gale as our May Barbershopper of the Month.
Dave began his Barbershop journey in July 1997. For 13 years Dave has sung Baritone with Harmony Kings, but has also handled the Bass line when needed. Dave has also served on the Chapter board of directors as Treasurer in 2013 and Chapter VP of Music and Performance in 2014.
When it comes to quarteting, Dave has sung with many pick-up quartets, including performing on the Harmony Kings 2014 Annual Show. Currently Dave is the baritone with the registered “Tale Draggers” quartet.
Harmony Kings is pleased to honor Dave as our BOTM in May for his work as one of our Assistant Directors. Dave serves as the HK warm-up director, preparing the chorus vocally for a night of singing. He has the responsibility of reminding the chorus of what we learned last week, and leading us into new areas of vocal improvement. Occasionally Dave finds himself leading an entire Chapter meeting and always offers his best smile and a word of encouragement.
If that’s not enough, Dave is the Chapter Music Librarian. He takes on the thankless job of organizing our music, maintaining guest books, and insuring that every member has music. He is one of the many “official” greeters of our guests as he provides them with the current repertoire and helps them find a place on the risers.
It is with pride that Harmony Kings present our May BOTM award to Dave Gale.
