The Lettermen formed in 1959 and after signing with Capital Records in 1961 became chart toppers. Since their formation, the vision of The Lettermen was of three very strong soloists who had the ability and showmanship to perform and entertain an audience, but who also had the discipline needed to be group singers. The sound they came up with was a sound between the big band vocal groups such as the Modernaires, Pied Pipers, Mills Brothers, Four Freshmen and the early R&B rock groups such as the Ink Spots, Flamingos and the Platters.

Their first single for Capitol, “The Way You Look Tonight,” succeeded on the Billboard Hot 100 pop chart and climbed to No. 13. Their next, “When I Fall in Love,” reached the Top 10 in late 1962 and hit No. 1 on the adult contemporary chart. They had several other Top 10 hits, such as 1965’s “Theme From A Summer Place”. The hits continued with the 1967 medley “Goin’ Out of My Head”/”Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” and in 1968 with “Put Your Head on My Shoulder”, plus 1969’s “Hurt So Bad”, which reached No. 12 and lasted 21 weeks on the Hot 100. They have continually recorded, averaging at least one album a year.

Among 32 consecutive albums which charted in the Top 100 in the United States, four were certified gold: “The Lettermen!!!…And “Live” (1967) “Goin’ Out of My Head” (1968), “Best of The Lettermen” (1969) and “Hurt So Bad”(1970). They formed their own Alpha Omega Records in 1979. Some of their newer CD albums, now numbering over 75, are: “The Lettermen – Favorites”, “The Lettermen – Best Of Broadway”, “The Lettermen – Live In The Philippines”, their holiday CD “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year”, and their 2010 release “The Lettermen – New Directions”.

The Lettermen are Tony Butala, Donovan Tea and Bobby Poynton. Butala is proud of the fact that The Lettermen have been part of Americana for fifty years and that as long as there is a Lettermen group, they will be singing good, quality, and positive harmony music that the whole family can enjoy. And they’re coming to Ironwood!

Don’t miss this special treat as The Lettermen sing their biggest hits – and some holiday favorites.
