The Four Lads Are a Popular Canadian Male Singing Quartet.
In the 1950's, 1960's, and 1970's, The FOur Lads earned many gold singles and albums. Their million-selling signature tunes include "Moments to Remember," "Standin' on the Corner," "No, Not Much," "Who Needs You," and "Istanbul."
The current incarnation of The Four Lads featured the original member Frank Busseri (bass), plus Don Farrar (lead tenor), Aaron Bruce (second tenor), and Alan Sokoloff (baritone).
The original quartet grew up together in Toronto, Ontario, and were members of St. Michael's Choir School, where they learned to sing.
The founding members of The Four Lads were Corrado "Connie" Codarini, bass (died April 28, 2010); John Bernard "Bernie" Toorish (born March 2, 1931), tenor; James F. "Jimmy" Arnold (January 4, 1932 - June 15, 2004), lead; and Frank Busseri, baritone and group manager.
Codarini and Toorish had formed a group with two other St. Michael's students, Rudi Maugeri and John Perkins, who were later to become founding members of another group, The Crew-Cuts.
