“Two weeks ago, I hosted the 75th anniversary gala for a barbershop group based at Georgetown University. 250 people, including 140 members and 110 family members and friends descended upon Tampa, Florida, for three days of singing, friendship, fun, and more singing. We featured a talent review of Broadway songs, magic, and amateur rock bands. I was worried about keeping things moving, and unsure how to keep a critical audience of musicians engaged.
The solution? Jeff Civillico! He kept things moving, entertaining the audience with juggling in between acts, and gently but firmly corralled the talent with humility, professionalism, and unfailing good humor. The evening was a great success, thanks to him. We are lucky to have him as a lifetime member, and as an emcee for the review.”
