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.

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.
Art Graham Is our April 2016 Barbershopper of the Month
Federal Way Harmony Kings Chapter is pleased to recognize Art Graham as our April Barbershopper of the Month.
Art joined the Federal Way Harmony Kings and Barbershop Harmony Society in April of 1997.
Over the past twenty years Art served on the Harmony Kings board as Chapter Treasurer from 2006 to 2008 and Assistant Treasurer 2012. In 2014 Art resumed his duties as Chapter Treasurer.
Along the way Art has sponsored 2 new members into the society. His quartet experience includes singing tenor in “Affinity Four Sound” and “What Do You Want To Know 4”? Art has a fine bass voice, which makes him a great tenor… and he has lent his voice to the tenor section since the beginning.
Harmony Kings honors Art Graham, in April, specifically for his dedication as a member of the Division II Contest and Convention Committee. Art represented Harmony Kings on the committee and served as the Treasurer of the event. Art is one of three Harmony Kings members that assist the planning, promotion, and the structure of the convention. This committee has provided a high quality event three years in a row. Art’s hard work behind the scenes helps the Convention to run smoothly regardless of any turmoil that might be bubbling under the service.
In his off time, Art volunteers for TaxAid Services in Enumclaw assisting with tax preparation for members of his community. Art also maintains a strong relationship with 4Culture and the City Of Federal Way insuring that Harmony Kings Services are available to the community.
It is with pride that Harmony Kings present our April BOTM award to Art Graham.
**Special mention goes to Jim Burbidge and Joe Hawe, previous BOTM recipients, for their service to the Division II Contest and Convention as they provide a quality experience for all participants.
