Never Home 4 is a “seasoned” barbershop quartet with collectively over 135 years of membership in the Barbershop Harmony Society, the largest male singing organization in the world.
The quartet has twice entered and won the Vocal Ensemble Gold Medal in the NC Senior Games and has represented the Barbershop Harmony Society's Dixie District at International Senior Competitions several times. The quartet is available for daytime, evening and weekend performances; they've provided entertainment at banquets, variety shows, expos, club meetings, conventions and private parties in Virginia, South Carolina, Tennessee, Florida and extensively through North Carolina. They also manage to keep busy representing their local chapter at high school and grade school performances throughout the school year.
They have a mix of barbershop "oldies", Broadway show tunes, patriotic and spiritual songs in their repertoire and their enthusiasm for this American art form has captivated their audiences over past 15 years.
The quartet was started by Bob Dickson (bass), Archie Steen (baritone), Dick Smith (lead) and Bill McFadden (tenor). Credit Bob Dickson with the schools. Only Dick Smith remains of the original quartet members. Newer members in order of replacement are Andre Lesperance (tenor), John Zweighaft (baritone) and Warren Fuson (bass). With the retirement of Bob Dickson from the quartet and introduction of Warren Fuson, 2011 was a rebuilding period. The quartet was pleased to resume performing starting with their chapter's holiday show, December 9, 2011. They are all members of the General Assembly chorus.
