The Four Preps…featuring Original Lead Singer BRUCE BELLAND

Bruce is the only original member heard on every Four Preps track ever recorded. Over five decades he’s become what one critic called “that rare creature - an Original Lead Singer from the Fab. 50’s who can still bring audiences to their feet.” As the only original member of The Four Preps still actively performing, Bruce loved the idea of going back on tour and once again singing Lead in a great harmony ensemble. So now there’s a new touring version of The Four Preps strolling millions of Oldies lovers back down memory lane with the distinctive song stylings of the voice that has defined their music from the start.
