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. 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.

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.

Don C. Marovich

Don C. Marovich is a native Hoosier who relocated to the Phoenix, Arizona area in the 1970’s — joining The Limeliters in 2012. Don has also had an active solo and band career with many thousands of hours in front of diverse audiences. In the 80s, Don, as a bandleader, was the subject of a one-hour music special that aired in 36 states on ABC television. Don currently resides and plays all over the Southwest in winters and summers in Northeast Wisconsin.
Besides being a singer /songwriter, Don also plays guitar, banjo, bass, and mandolin. Music runs in Don’s blood and he is most at home any time his guitar is in his hands and the mic is live. Don brings his considerable skill and experience to the Limeliters with great enthusiasm.
