In August 2008, four guys decided to form a registered quartet under the name of Good Company. Tom Webb, Lee Hull, and Chris Rumas are original members. Tom Hoover, the original Bass, was not able to continue due to time constraints. So Good Company would like to take this opportunity to welcome their new Bass, affectionately known as “Mikie”. They look forward to more opportunities to share Good Company, and wonderful barbershop music for many more years.
Tom Webb ~ Tenor ~ Tom grew up in Ravenna Ohio. He first started singing in his high school choir, and in a male quartet. Tom attended Capital University, where he majored in speech and vocal music, and sang in the University’s Chapel Choir. He is the tenor section leader with the Chordsmen, and has been singing lead and tenor with the chorus since 2006. His love for barbershop singing has led him to join a second quartet, Ebbtide, which is based in Columbus. Tom is also a dual member of the Singing Buckeyes of Columbus, Ohio. He and his wife Joyce are owners of Webb & Associates, which is a specialty foods and candy brokerage.
Lee Hull ~ Lead ~ Lee has been a member of the Chordsmen since 1994. He sang lead with Bravada for seven years, and now he’s the seasoned veteran in Good Company. He is also the Praise Team leader of the McElroy Road Church of Christ. Lee passed on his love of barbershop to his son, Mike, who is the baritone for the 2013 Johnny Appleseed District Quartet Champs, Common Core. Lee is employed at Ariel Corporation in Mt. Vernon.
Mike Craze ~ Bass ~ Mike was in his school choir, but didn’t join a group again until later in life when he was introduced to barbershop music at a special function, and was hooked! He joined the Fun Center Chordsmen in 1999, and also is a dual member of the Singing Buckeyes of Columbus, Ohio. Mike sang bass in two previous quartets: Memories, and Barn Yard Boys. He loves to dance, too, but his favorite hobbies are singing, golfing, traveling, and working outdoors. He is also a member of the Ontario Lions Club. Mike worked 24 years for Peabody Barnes Pump Company, and 12 years for Gorman-Rupp Pump Company, where he retired in 2004.
Chris Rumas ~ Baritone ~ Chris has always had a love for singing, and views it as a ministry. He attended Indiana State University where he sang in a “pop” quartet, and also in the Men’s Glee Club. He sang in the Worthington Grace Brethren Church 150-member choir, and the church ensemble for 23 years before moving to Mansfield in July of 2004. Chris has been with the Chordsmen since November of 2004, and has been the Singing Valentines Chairman since 2008. He is also a dual member of the Singing Buckeyes of Columbus, Ohio. Chris and his wife Carla live on their 13 acre home site, and that keeps him busy!
