THE FOUR FRESHMEN
A vocal harmony like no other, The Four Freshmen have enamored listeners worldwide for 65 years and have gained recognition as one of the most influential vocal groups of all time. They have been inspiration to the likes of The Beach Boys, Kenny Rogers, The Mamas & The Papas, Frankie Valli, Manhattan Transfer, and countless others.
As freshmen in college, four young men crafted a unique style of vocal harmony that soon caught the ear of the great bandleader, Stan Kenton. Kenton was responsible for bringing the Freshmen to Capitol Records where they recorded 23 albums, thrusting them into the national spotlight. In 65 years, The Freshmen have recorded over 50 albums, an overwhelming 70 top selling singles, and have had 6 Grammy Nominations. The four have toured constantly since their inception, continuing to perform for sold out audiences around the globe.
Although the faces have changed through the years, the integrity of the sound created by the original four members has been meticulously maintained by its current lineup; Bob Ferreira, Brian Eichenberger, Curtis Calderon, and Stein Malvey. While continuing the time-honored heritage of the group by performing songs like “Day By Day” and “Blue World”, they have introduced new arrangements on some of their personal favorites such as, “Stardust ”, “Something’s Gotta Give”, “With Plenty Of Money And You”, and “A Nightingale Sang In Berkley Square”, to name a few.
As four amazing musical talents, their show is one not to be missed! Whether accompanied by a big band, symphony, or simply self-contained; their youth, vitality, and talent add an unforgettable twist of elegance to an already unmistakable sound.
The Four Freshmen have just released their newest offering, “Love Songs”. This recording by the Freshmen brings together the beauty of their vocal harmony with songs from iconic songwriters, and is rounded out by lush strings and a top notch rhythm section.©2013 SCVTV
