The Brothers of Four, Sounds of Summer "Remember" Dinner-Concert
The late-afternoon party includes a no-host social hour, nostalgia buffet and a concert of beloved folk hits.
The Brothers Four, in perfect harmony with America's greatest folk hits since the early '60s, have played thousands of college concerts, sung for four different U.S. presidents at the White House, appeared at countless community concerts, performed with symphony orchestras and jazz stars and toured dozens of foreign countries. They are truly "America's Musical Ambassadors to the World."
The original members of The Brothers Four met at the University of Washington, where they were members of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity in 1956 (hence the "Brothers" appellation.) They left for San Francisco in 1959, where they met and signed on with Dave Brubeck's manager, who later that year secured a contract for them with Columbia Records. Their second single, "Greenfields," released in January 1960, hit #2 on the pop charts, and their first album, "Brothers Four," released toward the end of the year, made the top 20.
Other highlights of their early career included singing their fourth single, "The Green Leaves of Summer," from the John Wayne movie "The Alamo," at the 1961 Academy Awards, and having their second album, "BMOC/Best Music On/Off Campus," go top 10.
The full-time lineup of The Brothers Four, all Washington natives, is as solid as ever. It now includes: Mike McCoy, a veteran folk performer and singer/songwriter; Karl Olsen, folk performer, choral director, writer and arranger; Mark Pearson, guitarist, banjo player extraordinaire and singer/songwriter who has been part of the group's signature sound since the late '60s; and founding member, Bob Flick, bass player, group leader and singer/songwriter.
