Realtime has been together since March of 2003, when John Newell arrived in Canada and mutual friends helped bring the group together. Since then it's been a musical whirlwind of activity, with two recordings, hundreds of shows and a world championship under their belt. In 2008, Doug Broersma became the official lead singer, when John retired. Contest Stuff Realtime became the 2005 International Quartet Champions of the Barbershop Harmony Society in Salt Lake City. So having reached the pinnacle of the barbershop contest world, they have sung in their last contest, and received their final score in the barbershop genre. They plan to compete in the Harmony Sweepstakes, to feed their competitive needs. World Travelling Realtime has sung so far in: British Columbia, Alberta, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Kentucky, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Florida, California, Utah, Massachusetts, Ontario, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Georgia, as well as New Zealand and Australia, England and Russia.
