Take a trip down the snow-covered memory lane when The Lettermen take the stage of The Bezemes Family Theater this holiday season. Featuring the talents of Tony Butala, Donovan Tea, and Bobby Poynton, this is a concert you won’t soon forget.
Twenty million records and several thousand concert shows ago, 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 playlists 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 the special romantic Lettermen harmony. One of their better-known songs, “Goin’ Out of My Head/Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” was a first of its kind when it was released; it was the first hit record ever to completely integrate two songs as one. One deejay said The Lettermen sound was “the best thing that happened to romance since moonlight.” Over the years, however, The Lettermen have been aware of the ever-changing music scene. Therefore, the group has constantly updated its shows through the trends of folk sound, amplified guitars, and synthesized keyboards to always keep the act “today.” Through all these trends, the Lettermen theme still remains the love song.
Although they have had more than their share of recording success, The Lettermen pride themselves on their live performances. Each show is a valentine to every audience as they maintain a whirlwind touring schedule throughout the United States and abroad. The music of these true entertainers transcends all language barriers and warms the hearts of millions.
