Break from Blue Collar is making a distinct mark in the world of barbershop and a capella music, mixing fresh interpretations of barbershop classics with the exciting sounds of rock & roll. The result is an entertainment experience that can’t be beat.

BFBC was formed in 2010 by Millersville University students who had a desire to create high-quality and high-entertainment barbershop and a capella music. They first gained recognition as the school board/quartet in a production of Meredith Wilson’s “The Music Man” with Cavod Academy of the Arts, and have since performed at a wide variety of events throughout Lancaster County and the surrounding areas. They actively participate in various benefit concerts and have raised over $30,000 for different charities.

BFBC is also gaining recognition in the competitive circuit, having won first-place twice in area competitions, most recently in the 4th Annual M&T Bank Regional Glee Competition in April 2014, and previously in 2012 at the WVRC Barbershop Quartet Sing Off. They have also performed the National Anthem for the Hershey Bears, Pittsburgh Pirates, Philadelphia Phillies, and the New Jersey Devils, which was broadcast to millions of people on ESPN.

The guys are thrilled that people are drawn to their unique vocal and performance style, and are grateful for the growing opportunities being offered to them in the Lancaster area and beyond. Break From Blue Collar is: Zach Bailey (Tenor), Benjamin Hallowell (Lead), Tyler Hart (Baritone), and Shaun Ressler (Bass).

The Lititz Farmers Market is open Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon, May 2 through Oct. 31, on Water St., half a block from East Main. Visit lititzfarmersmarket.com.
