Formed in the summer of 2006, ONYX Vocal Band features
Steve Hill,
Wilf Lemieux, Paul Widdifield and Dave McCaffrey.
Collectively, these four close friends have over 100 years of vocal harmony experience, including barbershop, jazz, spiritual, community choral & doo wop

Steve began his musical career in a garage band at the tender age of 15. Harmony singing entered his life in 1995 with the Newmarket Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, in both chorus and quartets; he discovered gospel music around the same time. Two years later, Wilf joined the harmony society with the same chapter and has sung in the Upper Canada Chordsmen Chorus, as well as various quartet combinations, ever since. Paul and Dave each became involved in a cappella quartets in high school in the 50s and, between them, have sung in more than 15 small ensembles…quartets, quintets and octets. ONYX is their sixth collaboration since the mid-60s. All four are members of the Barbershop Harmony Society.

The vocal band’s repertoire includes swing, jazz, doo-wop, country, oldies (50s, 60s, 70s) with lead Steve Hill on guitar, gospel and traditional/ contemporary a cappella, many in the barbershop style.

In addition to cabaret & stage shows; corporate, retail and community events; birthdays, anniversaries and weddings; ONYX Vocal Band has made a commitment to continuing community service work.
