Their style of singing and repertoire which was so popular nearly died of neglect. In 1992, five, classically-trained singers united to recreate the music and style of the legendary Comedian Harmonists. Calling themselves Hudson Shad, they began to sing here and there. Now, Hudson Shad tours in Germany about twice each year, singing to sellout audiences who stand, clap and call for encore. Hudson Shad's concerts typically feature a selection of Comedian Harmonists tunes, such as "Happy Days Are Here Again," Ellington's "Creole Love Song," and "Stormy Weather" by Harold Arlen. But they have also added such classical gems as Schubert's "Erlkonig" and Kriesler's "Liebeslied." Throw in a Mills Brothers piece, a couple of Revellers tunes, a spiritual or two, maybe a Sinatra selection, and you have the foundation of a superb con- cert. Hudson Shad is much more than five strong voices, from high tenor down to deep bass. They are a smooth and rich vocal ensemble with a great blend of voices. They are a group of friends who love to perform this music--and that love shines through in their performances. And they are a troupe of musicians who also love to act. In fact, they hire a stage director to choreograph many of the tunes, adding some light dance steps, simple props, all of which makes the songs come alive.
