The Lettermen

* The Lettermen.

Real simple story..,

In 1966 I saw The Lettermen in concert at Ithaca College. I was a 17 year old freshman and a ticket cost $2.25.

To this very day, I remember The Lettermen’s hauntingly beautiful harmonies and despite numerous personnel changes -still consider this trio- one of the most “beautiful” vocal acts of all time. Lead by original member Tony Butala the group still performs all over the world.

I’m not ashamed to tell you, that I love this groups’ sound. The Lettermen’s vocals rival anything that Johnny Mathis, The Four Seasons, Steve Lawrence and Andy Williams ever recorded.

It hasn’t been publicly announced, but The Lettermen will be appearing at the Magic City Casino in Miami on January 24, 2015, Kings Point in Delray Beach on January 30, 2015 and The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach- February 3-7 2015. I have no idea as to what tickets will-run (but I’d bet they’ll be more than $2.25)… All I can tell you, if you want to see-hear what great-vocal harmony is all about, then you gotta go see The Lettermen.

    Hey Jeff,
    RAK here.
    For your readers, we met as Freshmen in 1966.
    I remember that show.
    I also remember Chicago Transit Authority, Joan Baez, Beach Boys, Flip Wilson, Chad Mitchell Trio with John Denver, The Four Tops all for $2.25 and Simon & Garfunkel for $2.50. I remember watching Ithaca student Larry Hoppen create Orleans and partying countless nights to Bobby Comstock & The Counts.
    Great memories.

    Saw them many years ago in Las Vegas. Beautiful sound. Not sure if the lineup was the same as the current one.

    I just put in an order to buy tickets for them at Kings Point.
    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

    Saw them at Kings Point last night and they were not very good. They sound nothing like their records.
