2013 LAS VEGAS PERFORMANCES

What makes these guys unique is they sing everything from classical to country and jazz to hip-hop as they pay tribute to a wealth of famous musicians.


The formula of their success is that each tenor has his own individual style and genre in which he sings exceedingly well. Then they come together as a group and change styles cross genres without missing a beat.


Included in this show is a segment celebrating some of the great groups during the last century like the Mills Brothers, the Beatles, the Mamas & the Papas and Aerosmith."


And the show also features some comedy by the foursome's resident funny man Brian Damson. The tenors are Damson, Morgan James, Michael Scott Brooks and Ken Nielson.


The IV Tenors have thrilled audiences wherever they have appeared.... Don't miss the opportunity to see this hit show as they pass through Las Vegas on their National Tour.
