The timeless songs of The Lettermen will fill the air of Lemmond Theater at Walsh Hall at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, March 22 when the group performs many of its timeless hits, such as Put Your Head On My Shoulder, When I Fall In Love, Traces/Memories, Can't Take My Eyes Off of You, Hurt So Bad and Theme From A Summer Place.

The group's signature sound of romantic standards scored more than 25 hit singles in the 1960s and 70s. At the same time, The Lettermen toured with George Burns, Jack Benny, Bob Hope and Bill Cosby; performed on bills with Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Jackie Gleason, Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin, Jimmy Durante, Debbie Reynolds, Sam Cooke and Sammy Davis, Jr.

The group also appeared several times on television's The Ed Sullivan Show and was a regular on The Red Skelton Show and The Hollywood Palace.

Overall, The Lettermen have made more than 200 appearances on television shows, such as Dick Clark's American Bandstand series and various talk shows with Johnny Carson, Mike Douglas, Merv Griffin, Jack Paar, Milton Berle and many others.

During their more than 50-year career, The Lettermen have averaged at least one album a year. The trio has gone through a few personnel changes over the years. Today, the band is comprised of Tony Butala, an original and founding member, Donovan Tea and Bobby Poynton.
