The Lettermen Christmas

The Lettermen formed in 1959 and after signing with Capital Records in 1961 became chart toppers. Since their formation, the vision of The Lettermen was of three very strong soloists who had the ability and showmanship to perform and entertain an audience, but who also had the discipline needed to be group singers. The sound they came up with was a sound between the big band vocal groups such as the Modernaires, Pied Pipers, Mills Brothers, Four Freshmen and the early R&B rock groups such as the Ink Spots, Flamingos and the Platters.
Their first single for Capitol, "The Way You Look Tonight," succeeded on the Billboard Hot 100 pop chart and climbed to No. 13. Their next, "When I Fall in Love," reached the Top 10 in late 1962 and hit No. 1 on the adult contemporary chart. They had several other Top 10 hits, such as 1965's "Theme From A Summer Place". The hits continued with the 1967 medley "Goin' Out of My Head"/"Can't Take My Eyes Off You" and in 1968 with "Put Your Head on My Shoulder", plus 1969's "Hurt So Bad", which reached No. 12 and lasted 21 weeks on the Hot 100. They have continually recorded, averaging at least one album a year.
Among 32 consecutive albums which charted in the Top 100 in the United States, four were certified gold: "The Lettermen!!!...And "Live" (1967) "Goin' Out of My Head" (1968), "Best of The Lettermen" (1969) and "Hurt So Bad"(1970). They formed their own Alpha Omega Records in 1979. Some of their newer CD albums, now numbering over 75, are: “The Lettermen – Favorites”, “The Lettermen – Best Of Broadway”, “The Lettermen – Live In The Philippines”, their holiday CD "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year", and their 2010 release "The Lettermen - New Directions".
The Lettermen are Tony Butala, Donovan Tea and Bobby Poynton. Butala is proud of the fact that The Lettermen have been part of Americana for fifty years and that as long as there is a Lettermen group, they will be singing good, quality, and positive harmony music that the whole family can enjoy. And they're coming to Ironwood!
Don't miss this special treat as The Lettermen sing their biggest hits - and some holiday favorites.

Warren Miller's "Line of Descent"
Saturday, Nov. 25, 2017
Line of Descent The lineage of mountain lifestyle continues in Warren Miller Entertainment's 68th full-length feature film, Line of Descent. In this year’s film, WME travels the globe, by land, air, and sea, exploring the ties that bind ski culture.
In Squaw Valley and Jackson Hole, WME visits skiing icons who have made the mountains their home and raised mini Moes and Moseleys of their own. Traveling to Norway, a Canadian ski patroller enjoys the company of his Norwegian brethren, and in the French Alps, native son Jean-Claude Killy’s legacy fills Val-D’Isere hearts with pride. From BC to France, Glacier Country to Steamboat, new generations of skiers and riders are pushing their sport to new extremes, making their parents proud—and often downright nervous.
WME crews chase winter along the Beartooth Highway where a road trip via motorcycles takes athletes Kalen Thorien and Mike “Bird” Shaffer from Montana to Wyoming. And still to come, snowboarders Seth Wescott and Rob Kingwill will head to New Zealand to descend Mount Cook.
For 68 years, ski families have cheered the official kickoff of winter with the ski film company that started it all. This year is no different. The family grows, and the traditions grow richer, in Warren Miller’s Line of Descent. Bigger, deeper, fresher than ever.
For teasers, athletes and locations go to warrenmiller.com. For behind the scenes photos and filming updates, follow along with Warren Miller Entertainment on Facebook and @warrenmillerent on Instagram.
This stop on the 2017 Warren Miller tour is promoted by the Snow Country Ski Club, formerly the Ironwood Ski Devils, our local High School Ski Racing Team. The club is no longer funded by the school system. Parents of racers, racers and volunteers fundraise to help keep local youth skiers active, engaged, and competitive on the racing circuit that covers Upper and Lower Michigan and Northern Wisconsin. The club is very proud of its long track record and deep history. The local skiing community is strong and many of these long time skiers are Ski Devil Alumni. There are many fond memories of the ski devil travelling team, its successes and championships and its former long term Michigan Hall of Fame coach, Theron Peterson.
The Snow Country Ski Club partnered with us at the Theatre and with Warren Miller to bring this premier movie to our ski town. This is one of the very important fund raisers that help cover travel expenses, lift tickets, equipment maintenance, coaching, and more. So buy some tickets and bring a few friends to the movie and get your Stoke for Winter! Winter is coming!
Doors and Kelly's Bar open at 6:30 pm (CST). Line of Descent screens at 7:30 (CST), but come early, hang out with your ski crowd and dig into the latest gear on display by our local sponsors.
NOTE TO THOSE TRAVELING FROM OUTSIDE OUR IMMEDIATE AREA: Even though we are in the UP, Ironwood is in the Central Time zone!
