Kevin started singing barbershop at the tender age of ten, having first been introduced to this unique style of 4-Part A Capella Vocal Music by his mom & dad, Don & Norma Bailer, who also performed barbershop with Sweet Adeline’s & SPEBSQSA. He formed his first men’s quartet as sophomore while attending Mooresville High School, singing lead in the barbershop quartet in the hit musical, “Music Man”. For the next three years, his quartet became very popular in and around town and was honored to perform at every MHS music event every year, culminating in his school’s graduation ceremony.
Kevin first joined the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS) in his mid-twenties, performing with the Pride of Indy Chorus for three years, took a hiatus, and then later re-joined the Greater Indianapolis Chapter, of BHS, “Circle City Sound” (CCS) in 2015. Kevin currently serves on the Board of Directors for CCS and is also honored to serve as Vice President of Membership.

Kurt comes from a musically gifted family having performed Barbershop and Gospel music at a very early age together with his mom, dad, sister & older brother, Kevin. Kurt & Kevin’s Dad, Don Bailer was a life-long avid barbershopper, having joined BHS in 1968 and performed for many years with the Pride of Indy which later became Circle City Sound.

Like the other members of BOAC, Jeff started singing and performing at a very early age with his family. Jeff’s Father, Linn Broadfoot was a charter member of the “Daniel Boone Chorus” which later became “The Ambassadors of Harmony”. Together with his dad & two brothers they would sing barbershop, gospel, pop, and folk songs at numerous family gatherings and officially joined his dad on the risers in 1976 at the age of 16.
Jeff sang with the Daniel Boone Chorus until 1978, when he left for college to attend the University of Missouri, at Columbia, MO (MIZZOU). Since the university had no local BHS chapter, as a Freshman, Jeff tried out for and was accepted into the Premier Vocal Jazz Ensemble, “Singsations”, singing and performing with them for the next four years. In 1981, “Singsations” was selected to represent the United States in a cultural exchange program, called “Friendship Ambassadors” where the group toured the Soviet Iron Block Countries of Romania & Bulgaria. The trip was a blast and culminated in the ensemble bringing home the gold medal at the finale music festival!
After college, Jeff took a job in Indianapolis and missed barbershop so much, he joined the Pride of Indy and sang with them from 1983 through 1985. After taking a hiatus to raise a family the barbershop bug caught Jeff again, so in 2016, he joined the rest of his CCS Brothers once again on the risers and has been singing and performing with them ever since. Then in 2017, good fortune struck yet again when he became good friends with Kevin, Kurt, & Larry and formed “Brothers of a Chord” Quartet and has been singing and performing with them ever since.
Jeff owns his own business, and together with his wonderful wife of 33 years, Kathleen, they reside on the south side of Indianapolis. Jeff & Kathleen have three grown children who are also musically talented and recently became the proud grandparents of a baby boy & baby girl! Jeff & Kathleen feel blessed to have such a wonderful family and look forward to the opportunity to babysit and sing with their grandkids!
