Here are the Performers
who make up the present-day Four Lads

Don Farrar, Lead Tenor

Don began his professional singing career in 1956, as top tenor in a male quartet from his college, the University of Kansas. That group was part of a USO show that went to Europe to entertain the US troops. The songs they performed included, among others, "Standin' on the Corner,". Little did he know then that destiny was giving him a hint of things to come. After singing with jazz groups in Kansas City and Omaha, forming his own group for a while, then singing in dinner theatre for three years, he moved to New York to seek his fortune as a group singer. Hearing through the grapevine that there was an opening in The Four Lads, he auditioned and was hired on the spot, moving into the second tenor position. That was in 1984. Two years later, due to a retirement, he moved up to lead tenor, and has been there ever since. His dream of long ago has come true. His eMail address is

Aaron Bruce, Second Tenor

Aaron began his singing career as Boy Singer with the famous Dick Jurgens Band, and the even more famous Jan Garber Orchestra. The Four Lads heard him one night, and when Bernie Toorish, the second tenor, decided to retire he felt that Aaron was the man for the job. That was over 35 years ago, and Aaron has been a fixture in the group ever since, recording with the group on their "10 MILLION AND STILL COUNTING" album. He feels it is a great honor to be part of The Four Lads, and the Lads are honored to have him. You can eMail him at aaronbruce@TheFourLads.com

Harry DuVall, Baritone

Harry's professional career actually began in 1957 in a male quartet performing at Bimbo's 365 Club at North Beach in San Francisco. This led to a gig at the Riviera in Las Vegas, which in turn led to a stint with The Axidentals. This famous group moved to New York City and made several albums. Harry then began a lucrative career singing jingles and commercials, and doing record dates as a backup singer in NY. During this time he spent two years with The New Group, recording an album, and appearing 7 times on the Johnny Carson Show. In 1980 he was hired by The Four Lads, replacing John D'Arc, a long time member of the original group, and has been with the Lads on and off ever since.

Frank Busseri, Bass

Frankie is "the Old Man" of the group, being one of the Founders, and the only remaining Original Member of The Four Lads. He began as the baritone, and that's his voice you hear singing solo on the original recording of "Standin' on the Corner". He moved to the the bass part after Connie Codarini, the original bass, retired in 1961. For over 65 years he has been the Group's leader, manager, mainstay, Shining Light, and Keeper of the Flame, always on guard to maintain the original sound and musical standards of the Lads. He was inducted into the Group Singers Hall of Fame on Sept. 16th, 2003. You can eMail him at Tony@arbproducions.ca
