Hey Jim & Sue! I don't know if you ever check this page but I just wanted to say hi. It's been about 12 years since I've seen you or been in touch but have been thinking about you a lot lately. Is Reunion still performing? I realized the other day that I haven't seen Gary in person in 38 YEARS! That is WAYYYY too long! LOL. Would love to catch another one of your concerts soon if you're still singing together. Take care and write if you get a chance.

I first met Tony Butala at the Latin Casino in Cherry Hill NJ where I was able to meet him backstage. That was one of the greatest moments of my life since I have about 42 Lettermen Albums. I had the opportunity to see the Lettermen show at the Ocean Grouve Audotorium. I found out that the seniors are invited to free concerts at the PNC in NJ. I was able again to get some tickets for their show. I love the Lettermen and was happy I was able to see their show. Thank you for continuing this great music and I hope I can see you all again in NJ. One of your greatest fans. (I will never forget the kiss on the cheek that I got from Tony).

I had the chance to finally see The Lettermen on January 24, 2007 in Sun City Center, Florida. What a thrill! And to see Mark Preston after 20 years. Their sound, in my opinion, is one of the 3 best. They picked up right were there they left off, but only better. The stength and enthusiasm is bar none. Mark is so glad to be back. And it shows. After 17 years as a star on cruise ships, he's glad to be home. This is where it's at. The Lettermen are back! and they are re-learning some of the classics: If Ever I Would Leave You?, Sealed With A Kiss, Our Winter Love, Warm, Cherish/Precious And Few and the list goes on.... Tony's always crowd pleasing Maria, Donovan's Daddy's Girl, and Mark's Copacabana and Do I Love You? Does it get any better? A crowd pleasing ending with God Bless The USA and I Believe. Mark, Donovan and Tony were the best after and I truly enjoyed renewing old friendships. What a wonderful journey. I Love these friends!

On Christmas night, in the middle of the Caribbean, I was given an
incredible gift when Beth McFarren agreed to be my wife. She is the
most amazing woman I have ever known and I look forward to the day
when you can meet the woman who has changed my life.

47 years and counting! Your music is absolutely the greatest.

I have been a Lettermen fan since 1965 (and member of their fan club!), and I still love their music, especially Tony's solos! So glad I found your sites.

Hello everyone, Well it's off to Hawaii I go on a new adventure. I am
flying out tomorrow to Hana, Hawaii on the east coast of Maui, my new
home. It might be a while till I get back online. It is a small
community with a gas station and a general store. I am told I will be
able to watch the whales swim by from my deck at the house. I think I
will be able to write some good music there. Be sure to stop by my web
site and download this month's free MP3 of "Lost" and take a listen to
my "True Composer" CD in MP3 format at MIDI-Contest.com . Take care and
I will keep you posted on my new music.
Love to all

My name is Margie Gephart (formally Hoffmann).
I have known Tony since he was married to Judy and lived in Chatsworth, CA.
His olders son, Anthoy, and my daughter Tammy were frinds as little people
at Egermont School. I would love to hear from Tony on how his children are
doing. We had many great times together when our children were young. I
really remember the Forth of July parties and the roasted lamb. Please give
Tony my message; maybe he also would like a part of the past.

I looked at your site and it is great. Thank you for using my photos and sharing them with everyone. You are a good friend.
Hi again Shinichiro,
I just went to your web site once more and as usual it is great. I loved
all the collection of photos you now have of the Lettermen
present....and past. Keep up the good work.
Thank you for including me on your fan page. I have enjoyed singing with Jim, Bobby and Gary for the past 22 years. It has been such a joy singing all of the Lettermen hits. We hope to be able to get back to Japan in the near future.
Thanks again, Ric
Happy Birthday! Are you going to do anything fun to celebrate?
The solo album still isn't finished, but I am hoping to make some new
recordings very soon. There is also talk about the Diamonds doing a tour
of Japan in October, but nothing is firm yet. I will, of course, let you
know if I am coming over.
Hi Shinichiro, I enjoyed your Lettermen page very much. You have a great collection of photos and music. It brought back many memories. Please feel free to Email me and visit my web site at
Hi Shinichiro, Thank you for your kind Email and thank you for linking my site to yours have a happy holiday season.
your friend Donny Pike
Thank you so much for having a fansite for us. Reunion just did a concert last Saturday. We had a blast as we stopped counting our standing ovations after 5 of them. We only wish we could get Reunion back to Japan.
Please keep in touch and thanks for all that you do.
Jim and Sue
Mr. Shinichiro, my name is Don Campeau. I was in the Lettermen years back. In 1983, we did a Television special for NHK. Do you remember me?
I am happy that you like Mylene's music. I would like to speak with you. Thank you.
It is just fine with me to have you set up a cross link with The Lettermen's and my website.
Thanks for being a great fan. I believe we have shared emails before. You purchased my cd a while back.
I do hope I can sing for you again someday.
All the best.
Thank you for including me in your site about the Lettermen. I am now
performing with "The Diamonds" and I'll look forward to meeting you the
next time we tour Japan!

Thank you so much for creating your web page! I am very flattered. I hope we get to meet again sometime when I'm in Japan.
Thanks for the update! I should be doing some updates to my page in the near future so keep checking in.
Thank you soooo much once again for taking the time to honor me and the Diamonds with your web site. We are currently in Florida touring and have may concerts scheduled for the new year. Unfortunately, we do not have anything on the books for Japan yet. Let's hope that changes soon. I would love to come over once again and see all my old friends in Japan. I should have the new solo album ready in a couple of months. As soon as it is finished, I'll let you know.
I am not sure if you can read what I am typing to you, due to the language barrier but I hope you can. I am a big Lettermen fan in the states and I was looking at your site and I found it to be very informative and interesting. I enjoyed it greatly. Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know about visiting your site. Thanks and keep up the good work.
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your web site. I found you through a link at Patrick's site.
For years I have know Jim and Sue Pike, Tony and Gary and Sharon. The Lettermen, in fact, inspired me to go into the music business. What nice people they are.
Thank you for a good LETTERMEN site.
I have to congratulate you on an incredible website dedicated to The Lettermen past and present, including other vocal groups. Your Website is filled with so many wonderful pictures of the group. I have been a fan of The Lettermen’s since the early 70’s, and had the opportunity to see them in 1999 here in New York. I wish Capitol records would release a compilation of all of the songs recorded through the years. Whenever I get a chance, I try to get as many recordings as I possibly can, without duplicating songs.
Again, wonderful site
Robert McManus USA….
Glad you like the pictures...you can use them as you see fit.....glad to see the
music travels around the world...by the way, keep up the good English as I do
not know Japanese!

Glad to help...tje picture looks looks great! And you have some really neat
"old" pictures on your sites as well.....
Thank you for the neat site. I enjoyed hearing all the clips that you've included. I look forward to checking this site on a regular basis.
YOU GENTLEMEN ARE THE GREATEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I saw Reunion perform at ISU in Pocatello July 6, 2005. It was a night I will always cherish as they autographed my CD and picture. I had all there albums when I started working. You are my favorites. Please email me if you perform again in Idaho or Las Vegas as I will surely be there in the 2nd row again. Good luck in all your concerts!
nice to see you're still busy. I was a young missionary in Studio City back
in 1986 and went to your 50th birthday party. I still thoroughly enjy the
tapes you gave me and they inspired me to put together a volunteer variety
show for nursing homes and I'm trying to build my own trio with harmonies as
close tou Reunion's as I can. Thanks for sharing your talents.
Jim, I've seen you perform with the Lettermen (about 100 years ago,
I think) in Baltimore and with the Four Preps (in Springfield, MA) and I
still think you're wonderful. I'm very happy to see you and Gary back
together and performing again. Best of luck to you!
It was very good to meet you last Friday at the Xmas dinner. Yesterday my wife Cindy received the autographed CD on Christmas songs by The Lettermen... thank you so much.
We still have to decide who will buy the Worms next fishing season.

Please give this comment to Tony Butala.
Our son Michael Van Vooren sang with you at St. Brendans with Mr. Mitchell on at least one occasion and maybe a Mr. Mitchell anniversary. Michael was a Mitchell Boy and one of his lead singers. Maybe you remember him.
Michael and his wife Mae are going to be attending your concert at the Cerritos Performing Arts Center on December 11 2005. He will be seated on Level 2/Grand Door 2 G row/box seats 8 and 10. We have given Michael and his wife Mae these tickets for Christmas. I am hoping you can surprise him by recognizing him as one of The Mitchell Boys. Michael does sing sometimes but he has four young children--three daughters and one son. He is still a beautiful singer. Maybe you might ask him to join you in a musical number. Once a Mitchell Boy always a Mitchell Boy.
We would appreciate a return message from you Tony Butala.
Marie and Richard Van Vooren Michaels parents
