About usThe Lettermen
The beautiful voices of the singing trio, The Lettermen, first hit the music charts in 1961 with “The Way You Look Tonight”. Their voices blended as one. After following that first hit with another chart topper, “When I Fall in Love”, they were voted best vocal group of that year.
The original singers, Tony Butala, Jim Pike, and Bob Engemann continued to stay on top with beautiful harmony and love songs, while becoming one of the top college concert attractions of the 1960’s. They brought words to the Percy Faith hit “Theme From A Summer Place”, revived the classic Charlie Chaplin song “Smile”, warmed us with “Our Winter Love”, they begged “Come Back Silly Girl”, made everyone’s “Graduation Day” memorable, and came out, in 1966, with one of the most loved Holiday albums ever recorded: “For Christmas This Year”. Late 1967 brought about a “live” album, and perhaps the group’s most beloved and requested hit, “Goin’ Out of My Head / Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”.
Members who have contributed their wonderful vocal talents to The Lettermen sound include Don Campeau, Ralph “Chad” Nichols, Ernie Pontiere, Darren Dowler, and Mark Preston, among others. Their beautiful harmony is timeless.
