At an afterglow in September of 1996, four members of the Masters of Harmony chorus decided to sing a song. Three hours later, Garry Texeira, Chris Vaughn, Alan Gordon, and Scott Wilson exhausted the entire repertoire from three choruses and a few international championship quartets! Shortly after the 1996 Far Western District contest, Gotcha! became a registered quartet and bought matching socks.
The quartet spent 1997 moving through the competition ranks, including sweeping the Grand Championship at the Buckeye Invitational. Riding high from first year successes, Gotcha! qualified for their first International Quartet Contest for 1998, and were encouraged with their 20th place finish in Atlanta.
Upon returning, they immediately turned their focus to the 1998 Far Western District Contest in Phoenix, where they came home as the 1998 FWD Quartet Champs. They placed 12th in 1999 and 8th in 2000. They changed basses before the 2001 contest with the addition of Jim Kline (formerly of Buck Thirty-Nine and 139th Street Quartet).
The quartet climbed through 8th, 6th, and 2nd in the world before capturing the International Championship in Louisville, KY, in July of 2004. This made Jimmy’s 30th appearance on the International stage beginning in 1970.
Gotcha! has performed hundreds of shows across the U.S., Canada and Ireland – on stage, radio, and television and has produced three outstanding recordings.
