With the Return of the Legendary THE FOUR FRESHMEN
(December 5, 2013) The Colony Hotel - which The Palm Beach Post has hailed as “probably the best place for cabaret on the planet” – will once again celebrate the holiday season at the hotel's celebrated Royal Room with the the return of a classic American singing group:
The Four Freshmen
It wouldn’t be December in the Royal Room without the 10th annual visit from The Four Freshmen, the nation's longest lasting vocal harmony group who are celebrating more than a half-century of crowd-pleasing performances. From their first hit song, “It's a Blue World,” to being voted Down Beat Magazine's Vocal Group of the Year in both 2000 and 2001, the group presents classic jazz-pop songs with cutting-edge vitality. The Four Freshmen have released more than 40 albums and 70 singles and been nominated six times for a Grammy.
Reviews of The Four Freshmen:
+ Charles Osgood, CBS Sunday Morning: “Some musical groups survive and even flourish, year after year, decade after decade. The Four Freshmen have endured for the simple reason that they are top in their class.”
+ The Virginia Pilot: "A more charming evening of jazz there never was.”
+ Topeka Capitol-Journal:
+ Near Magazine: “The Four Freshmen have become known all over the world for their style of 'Freshmen Harmony'. They have been imitated through the years by many singing groups, but none can catch that special quality in the many songs made famous by them.”
