Announcing Four Freshmen Group #25!
The Four Freshmen Group #25
L to R: Tommy Boynton, Jon Gaines, Bob Ferreira and Stein Malvey
TO OUR FANS: After 15 years with The Four Freshmen, Curtis Calderon has decided to leave "the road" and devote more time to his growing young family. He'll still be found playing locally in San Antonio where he can remain close with family and avoid those airport lines! Curtis remains a friend of The Four Freshmen and will continue to be involved with the Freshmen in a behind-the-scenes capacity. Curtis is pleased with the selection of Jon who joins a long legacy of extraordinary talent. Bob, Stein, & Tommy all look forward to the musical influence Jon will bring to the great legacy that is The Four Freshmen.
We thank Curtis for all his tireless musical contributions over the years. He's an awesome guy, and we wish him the very best!
Jon Gaines is joining the Four Freshmen on third voice, trumpet and flugelhorn. Jon, 25, is a graduate of the New England Conservatory; click HERE for Jon's biography. With Jon on board, the Four Freshmen continue their staggering 69 year legacy, bringing outstanding music to the world! We look forward to seeing you all on tour!

A Message from our President
We've been ongoing - THE FOUR FRESHMEN SOCIETY - since 1992 after the original fan club, The Four Freshmen Appreciation Society, was organized in 1987.
Our membership is about 2,500 members both including single and couple
active registrations. You should know that the FF Society, an enthusiastic, support organization, is like no other. There are member contributions from a variety of expertise areas. Although all major bookings are coordinated by International Ventures Incorporated, Society members often are responsible (in concert with IVI) to stage the Freshmen world-wide. The annual Freshmen conventions, reunion and new member recognition, are always popular and well-attended events, featuring FF Alumni and the current group (Tommy, Stein, Jon & Bob). I appreciate you stopping at our site to learn how important and exemplary the Four Freshmen are, and they have been so since 1948.
Members of the FFS meet annually for the Four Freshmen Society Reunion and Convention. We get to hear the Freshmen perform and interact with FF alumni. There's even a "Wannabees" session each day where we sing FF arrangements accompanied by FFS members on various instruments; it's great fun! Why not join us?
Our 2017 FFS convention is in Dayton, OH; to learn more about it (and register starting February 1st) just
The Freshmen themselves have a website which you can visit; just
