The Plainsmen Mark the Death of John Buckley ("Mr Barbershop")


Long-standing and much-loved member of the Plainsmen, John Buckley, died on 14th of March, 2017. John was a member of The Plainsmen since 1987, and had been involved in the chorus, various quartets and mixed groups for many years.He featured in top NZ quartets throughout his barbershop career, right up until his last Gold medal in 2012.
John represented New Zealand at the International contest level and has barbershop friends all over the world. At the Blenheim Convention last year, John was
presented with the inaugural BHNZ Outstanding Achievement Award which was justly deserved. We will miss this lovely supportive man and his amazing bass voice. Click here to read the tribute to John that Plainsmen, Ken Shields, delivered at John's funeral.
