The Gentlemen Songsters - Entertaining Folks Since 1932
     The Gentlemen Songsters began in 1932 as the Chevrolet Glee Club of Detroit. It was founded by Dave Redwood a general foreman at the Chevrolet-Detroit Forge Plant who thought that men needed to do something more than work all day.
     We are members of the Associated Male Choruses of America and the Michigan Male Chorus Association, which is one of the five districts in the AMCA. Each year we participate in a "District Sing" in which we join voices with approximately 300 singers from around the Michigan/Indiana/Ohio area. In 2005, we'll be sponsoring the District Sing.
     We have two big concerts we look forward to every year. The MMCA District Sing and a concert called "Industry Sings" where we join four other industry choruses (Detroit Edison Glee Club, General Motors Employee Chorus, Ford Motor Employees Chorus and Masco Employees Chorus).
     We are available to entertain from September to July at banquets, churches, civic associations and retirement homes. Contact Rob Cole at (248) 280-1593, or online at
     Over the years, the Songsters have sung at numerous Soap Box Derbies, various World's Fairs, Chevrolet new car introductions, many Michigan Male Chorus Association (MMCA) State Sings and Associated Male Choruses of America (AMCA) International Sings.
     In the late 1970's, during a recession, Chevrolet dropped their sponsorship. Rather than give Chevrolet free publicity, the membership voted to change our name. After an extensive search, we borrowed our name from a line in an old glee club song "The Whiffenpoof Song."
     Currently, under the direction of Bill Edwards, we perform throughout the year at retirement communities, nursing homes, churches and other civic functions.
