sound of the original group-a vocal
harmony like no other. They have strongly

the Beach Boys. As the 22nd incarnation
of the one and only Four Freshmen, their
longevity proves they are doing it right!
In concert they perform seminal Freshmen classics Day By Day and Blue World as well sharing
some of their favorites with new arrangements that include the irresistible force of Something’s
Gotta Give, the melodious Skylark, Early Autumn, September Song, My One and Only
Love. Each member is an accomplished vocalist and musician bringing new influences and perspective
to a time honored musical heritage.
They are some of the best young jazz talents in the business! The new group not only preserves the
Freshmen sound, they enhance it with their youth, vitality and talent giving a new treatment to the
Great American Songbook! Performing jazz and pop standards accompanied by a symphony, big band,
or self contained it is a show not to be missed.
