Arizona Senior Academy audiences are in for a rare treat when The 4GENTS present an evening concert on Tuesday (Aug. 14) beginning at 7:00 p.m.
The 4GENTS have been burning up dance floors and melting hearts with their remarkable vocal talents since 2015. Specializing in doo-wop and popular tunes from the ‘50s through the ’70s, these crooners perform nostalgic hits with flair, appealing to audiences of all ages. But make no mistake, The 4GENTS did not just casually meet on a street corner to harmonize together – each singer is a thoroughly trained musician with serious credentials. When they come together to sing doo-wop, the result is magical.
Matthew Holter, founder of The 4GENTS, is an award-winning music teacher and member of True Concord Voices and Orchestra who has performed and directed internationally in England, China, and Russia.
Jose “Chach” Snook enchants audiences with his clarion voice and presence. He was a member of the NY-based vocal ensemble Pieces of Eight before moving to Tucson where he has been named Teacher of the Year as an outstanding fine arts teacher.
Greg Guenther, an award-winning singer and educator, performs with multiple professional opera companies in Arizona, teaches with TUSD’s OMA program, and is on the faculty at Pima Community College.
Juan Aguirre, the bass whose amazing low notes will thrill you, has performed with Arizona Opera and has toured the world in both classical and popular genres. He is a recording artist who has also appeared on television and radio as a bilingual actor and voice-over artist.
