Extended History

Joker's Wild was formed in August of 1990 when the original four members met informally at the Buckeye Invitational in Columbus, Ohio and harmonized together. The sound and enthusiasm of the evening convinced them to form a quartet to showcase their natural blend.

After winning the Johnny Appleseed District (JAD) Quartet Championship in October of 1990, Joker's Wild went on to represent JAD at the 1991 International contest in Louisville, Kentucky. In their first appearance on the international stage, Joker's Wild placed 10th. The next year they moved up to 5th place Bronze Medalists. In Calgary Alberta, Canada they became the 1993 2nd place silver medalists.

And finally, in July 1994 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, they reached the ultimate goal of most barbershop quartet singers by becoming the 1994 International Champions.

Since winning the International Championship, Steve Iannacchione (tenor), Mark Green (lead), Steve Legters (bari) and Dave Kindinger (bass) have been featured on shows and concerts throughout the world. They have entertained audiences in the United States, Canada, Germany, Italy, France, and Spain. The quartet has also performed on national television, including Good Morning America, and radio spots across the United States.
