From their first hit in 1961 – “The Way You Look Tonight” – through current hits of today, The Lettermen sound is non-stop harmony and their concert appearances are non-stop fun. Entertaining diverse audiences for over 50 years, The Lettermen have a long, glorious history in the music business that includes nine gold albums and scores of top singles, attesting to a popularity that seemingly will never end. Featuring founding member Tony Butala (who developed the Lettermen “sound” in 1959), Donovan Scott Tea and Bobby Poyton, it was 20 million records and eight thousand concert shows ago that three young men in letter sweaters hit the music charts with their first single, “The Way You Look Tonight.” The soft, melodic tune was a departure from the hard-driving music of that day, but listener requests made it a must for disc jockey play lists all over the country. In almost every poll, The Lettermen became “Best Vocal Group” or “Best New Group.” Hit after hit followed: “When I Fall in Love,” “Theme From A Summer Place,” “Put Your Head on My Shoulder,” “Hurt So Bad” and “Shangri-La,” as well as over 50 albums filled with special romantic Lettermen harmony. One of their better known songs, “Goin’ Out of My Head/Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” was the first hit record ever to completely integrate two songs as one. Over the years, The Lettermen have been aware of the ever-changing music scene, constantly updating their shows through the trends of folk sound, amplified guitars, and synthesized keyboards to always keep the act fresh, while still remaining true to the power and universal appeal of love songs. Each show is a sincere gift made to that very audience, and this encore appearance is designed just for you! “The best thing that happened to romance since moonlight.”
