The Limeliters launched their career, to universal acclaim, in 1960 at San Francisco’s legendary “hungry i” night club (having spent the previous winter rehearsing and polishing their act at a ski lodge in Aspen, Co. called “The Limelite Lodge” — which served as the inspiration for the band’s name). The original band members, Lou Gottleib, Alex Hassilev and Glenn Yarbrough, took the country by storm with their soaring harmonies, eclectic repertoire and sophisticated humor.
For the next several years, The Limeliters performed on college campuses throughout the country, made numerous television appearances, produced a grammy nominated children’s album, provided the title song to a John Wayne movie and recorded one of the most memorable advertising jingles of all time,
“Things Go Better With Coke!”
In the ensuing years, the lineup of the group has featured several spectacularly talented new members, but The Limeliters have never deviated from the integrity
of the fabulous sound that they pioneered. Current members Andy Corwin, Steve Brooks, and Don Marovich are in perfect synch with the Limeliter tradition and
remain one of the most dynamic vocal groups on the scene today.
