 THE FOUR PREPS…featuring Original Lead Singer BRUCE BELLAND

The sound of any great vocal group is ultimately defined by the voice of its Lead Singer. In the case of THE FOUR PREPS, that voice belongs to BRUCE BELLAND who Co-founded the Preps in 1954 while still in high school and has been their front man ever since. Bruce is the only original member heard on every Four Preps track ever recorded. Over five decades he’s become what one critic called “that rare creature – an Original Lead Singer from the Fab. 50’s who can still bring audiences to their feet.”  Enjoy the comedy, wit and high energy of The Four Preps. Find out more at www.thefourpreps.com.

Mr. Sandman, Lollipop, Never On A Sunday, Eddie My Love…all songs made famous by The Chordettes. With beautiful costumes, elegant choreography, slick and sassy comedy, audience participation and silky harmonies, The New Chordettes create four-part and solo vocal magic that leave every audience wanting more! They bring a rich taste of The Big Band era with such standards as In The Mood, Begin The Beguine, Stardust and Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy. These lovely ladies have recreated the original sound of the great 50’s and 60’s girl groups with songs by The Shirelles, The McGuire Sisters, The Supremes and many others. Their harmonizing and doo-wopping is a trip down nostalgia lane. Audiences all around the world are clapping, laughing, dancing and singing along with The New Chordettes. Hear audio samples of The New Chordettes at www.thenewchordettes.com.
