Join us for an evening from the Golden Era of Harmony.

The Sun Lakes Friendship Club is proud to present an outstanding show featuring The Four Preps and The Chordettes singing all of the songs you loved to sing along with. This talent filled extraordinary show will be presented on the stage of the Main Ballroom on Sunday, April 12 at 7 p.m. (Doors open at 6 p.m.)

Featuring original lead singer Bruce Belland, the sound of any great vocal group is ultimately defined by the voice of its Lead Singer. In the case of The Four Preps, that voice belongs to Bruce Belland who co-founded the Preps in 1954 while still in high school and has been their front man ever since. Bruce is the only original member heard on every Four Preps track ever recorded. Over five decades he’s become what one critic called “that rare creature - an Original Lead Singer from the Fab. 50’s who can still bring audiences to their feet.”

As an added bonus, also appearing will be The Chordettes Judy, Nancy, Tracey and Candace in perfect harmony. Enjoy the hits including “Eddie My Love,” “Mr. Sandman,” “Lollipop, Lollipop” and “Never on Sunday.”

Tickets are $20 for club members, $25 for non resident guests.
