Eternal Harmony Brigade
We fondly remember these giants of the Brigade Movement who have passed on:
David Queen, a founder of the High Sierra Harmony Brigade, "retired" after 9 years of service as its leader and President. AXQHB awarded David a plaque to honor him for his service at the HSHB Rally in Reno, NV in August 2019. David's work brought eXtreme Quartetting to the western US.
In 2019, Mike O'Donnell, founder of the Great Lakes Harmony Brigade, stepped down after 10 years of service as the President of GLHB. AXQHB awarded Mike a plaque to thank and honor him for his service at the GLHB Rally in East Lansing, MI.
In 2018, Lou Maglione became the first person to attend all Harmony Brigade Rallies in a calendar year. There were 11 in 2018.
