The Four Freshmen are recognized in the music circle as one of the most influential musical
groups of all time. What began as a group of college freshmen in 1948 happily continues to pay
tribute to the history and evolution of the Freshmen sound. Some of their classic hits are “Day by
Day”, “Blue World” and “Graduation Day” and also other favorites like “Moonglow” and
“Stomping at the Savoy”.
With pure energy and great songs from the past and present, The Four Freshmen take listeners
to a bygone era while introducing others to their legendary vocal harmony which has been
meticulously maintained.
Their tight-knit sound inspired later groups like The Beach Boys, The Mamas and Papas,
Frankie Valli and the Manhattan Transfer.
The current vocal quartet consists of highly educated, musically diverse young men who
provide their own accompaniment with guitar, bass, trumpet, and percussion. Members hale from
across the U.S. and include Tommy Boynton, Stein Malvey, Bob Ferreira and Jon Gaines. They
not only preserve the original sound, they enhance it.
The Four Freshmen first signed with Capitol Records. To date, they have recorded 75 albums,
70 top-selling singles, and received six Grammy nominations. They continue to tour worldwide
to sold-out audiences.
