Who are the Dukes of Kent?

We are a local chapter of the international organization: The Barbershop Harmony Society.

The Dukes of Kent is an organization of talented and hard-working men who love to have a great time singing.  Our mission is to "Enrich Lives Through Singing," and we take that mission very seriously.  We enrich the lives of others and ourselves all at the same time by spreading our harmonies throughout the Valley and across Atlantic Canada.

The Dukes have been widely acclaimed within our region having won the Atlantic Canada Barbershop Chorus Championship twelve times, along with other prestigious awards.  We have members of all ages from the teenage years on up. 

Learn more about the Barbershop Style HERE.



We meet for practice at the Bethany Memorial Baptist Church, 539 Aldershot Road (Hwy / Route 359) each Tuesday evening at 7:00.


Our Director is Paul DesBarres with over three decades of experience in barbershop.

If singing is your passion, or you just plain like to sing, then we welcome you to visit and check us out.
