All members must contact the Lettermen Friends Club office 7 days prior to the concert to be added to the list.  Entrance will be denied without prior approval.  You will receive a confirmation email stating that you have been added.  Members will be notified of time/instructions during the week before performance. You need to take your email to the concert; this is your admission into sound check.

If you are afforded the opportunity to attend a sound check, please do not beckon to a group member on stage to make your presence known.  The group will be busy fine-tuning the sound & lights and should not be interrupted.  Anyone attending sound check will be required to leave the auditorium immediately afterwards and then return with their tickets when doors are opened to the general public.

A Private show – is not open to the public in any way.

Autographs

Historically, in most instances, The Lettermen have always signed autographs and posed for pictures after each performance. If you would like to obtain an autograph, please proceed to the autograph table at the conclusion of the performance.

Please be respectful of others and The Lettermen’s time and limit the number of items to be signed and photos taken.
