The Limeliters

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… and today, after 6 decades in the music business, The Limeliters are still one of the most exciting and entertaining vocal acts touring the country — “passing the music on” to new audiences, young and old.

THE CURRENT LIMES:

Andy Corwin

Andy Corwin is a performer and songwriter with an offbeat sense of humor and an formidable repertoire of folk, country and bluegrass music. A native New Yorker, Andy relocated to Southern California in the late 1970’s to attend U.C.L.A. where he earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in playwriting. A long-time folk & bluegrass enthusiast, he was a member of the satirical folk/comedy quartet “The Foremen” during the 1990’s and recorded two albums with the group for Warner/Reprise Records.. Andy has been a member of The Limeliters since 2004 and performed alongside original member, Alex Hassilev, for several years until Alex’s retirement from the band. In 2005, Andy’s comedy song writing was awarded top honors in the Kerrville Folk Festival’s “New Folk” Songwriting  competition. These days, Andy resides in Austin, Texas — where he occasionally performs (solo) at “Esther’s Follies”, Austin’s legendary comedy cabaret theater.
Andy is also an accomplished film and TV documentary director, writer and editor whose work has appeared on PBS, NBC, The Discovery Channel, The History Channel, A & E and The Food Network.

Steve Brooks

Cross two famous guys named Brooks – Garth and Mel – and you get Austin singer-songwriter Steve Brooks. A classic Texas troubadour who mixes storytelling, humor, heartbreak and cracker-barrel philosophy, his songs have been recorded by more than a dozen Americana artists, like Slaid Cleaves, Christine Albert and Russell Crowe. He wrote a song-a-week for Jim Hightower’s nationally-syndicated radio show and appeared on TV’s “I’ve Got a Secret” as six-time World Pun Champion. Writes Stave Magazine, “He is simply the most clever man you’ll hear with a guitar.”

Steve says that he was excited about joining the Limeliters because “The Limeliters and I were both born in the same year, and the kinds of folk songs they helped make popular were the same ones my mom sang to me growing up. Their classic songs and unique arrangements have stood the test of time, and they’re as much fun as ever to listen to and to play. As both I and the band approach our “Sixty-Year Old Waltz,’ I’m both honored and tickled to join their lineup and do my part to pass the music on, as it was passed on to me.

C. Daniel Boling

Balladeer/songwriter C. Daniel Boling is a past winner of the prestigious Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk songwriter contest and other songwriting honors including the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival, Walnut Valley Festival, Santa Fe Bluegrass and Old Time Festival and more. A Park Ranger and Criminal Investigator in National Parks and Public Lands throughout the western U.S.A. for 30 years, since 2008 he has toured coast-to-coast and overseas in over one hundred shows a year in house concerts, listening rooms, theatres and festivals. Daniel grew up on traditional folk music and the folk songs of the 60s. He is a Berkalin Records recording artist and has released eight solo albums since 1999.

Dutch music magazine Real Roots Café says of Daniel, “Think of a subtle intertwining of Steve Goodman, John Prine and Tom Paxton.”
