Paul, Chuck, Mark and Glenn hand picked each other out of a room of 60 members of the Michigan State Men's Glee Club to form a group and sing one song in a concert to help fill the time. And the name was chosen because of the sight gag of three really tall guys and one little guy with the highest voice. No auditions ever took place. The same four guys are still together... 25 years later.
Officially in 2017, THREE MEN and a TENOR will be celebrating it's 25th Anniversary year proving that they are a group of guys that are committed to each other, while road tested and respected in the industry for their incredible longevity. They have shown a unique ability to entertain every audience of all ages and sizes, and have been recognized 3 times as the "Best Entertainment in Michigan" by the readers of the Michigan Meetings and Events Magazine (2016, 2011, and 2006).
What started with these four guys and one song... has grown into a show that has now been seen by over 2 million people and is approaching it's biggest year yet. As 3MT continues it's musical journey, they are motivated to play a role in making people smile and laugh at a time when many have forgotten how. And if they accomplish nothing more, that seems worth the effort.
GET SOCIAL WITH 3MT:
50 years of great American music from The Temptations, The Eagles, The Doobie Brothers, The Mills Brothers, The Vogues, The Beatles, Elvis, Eric Clapton, James Taylor, Grand Funk Railroad and the Zac Brown Band.
The THREE MEN and a TENOR SHOW is musically produced by Donny Brown (founding member of "The Verve Pipe") and select songs choreographed by Kristy Davis (former Rockette) to give all audiences the full spectrum of the senses for a live vocal performance. It makes The THREE MEN and a TENOR show an experience not to be missed.
With high energy and touching arrangements of music from over 50 years of music and a mixture of just about all types of music for any fair/festival or main stage headliners, THREE MEN and a TENOR is the easy choice to open shows for national major talents. With only 4 microphones and mic stands to clear, the stage is ready for the headliner right away!
With the "Three Men" standing almost 6'5" and the "Tenor" at 5-feet tall there is as much playfulness in the show as there is polished musicianship. It gives each show a unique and genuine feel for every audience to experience the playfulness and professionalism of THREE MEN and a TENOR.
Each member of the group is deeply patriotic and recognizes the efforts and sacrifices of our military men and women and appreciate them in many different ways. The group acknowledges our military from the stage during shows, and can sing military tribute/Americana songs during their performances to show support.
Paul, Chuck, Mark and Glenn have 25 years of stage-polished, road-tested history together that has helped hone their timing and chemistry on stage. They have accomplished so much together that there is a very natural, genuine feeling of enjoyment in every show they do, that sends musical messages to every audience.
THREE MEN and a TENOR was formed by Paul Felch, Chuck Colby, Mark Stiles and Glenn Williams in 1992. The four remain together 25 years later and accomplishing amazing things with their unique vocal and comedic talents and timing. One of the reasons that the guys maintain such a loyal and loving fan base, is that the group will come out to meet the public after almost every show taking time to meet the people that they have just engaged with. It shows their crowds that they are as genuine off the stage as they seem on stage. And for many years, it is why many people refer to the group affectionately as "The Guys".
Paul is the foundation for all of the 3MT music. With over 30 years of bass guitar experience, you'll hear vocal bass lines as he might play them in a funk band from Detroit. Paul wrote the popular group ballad, "It's You", and he lends his powerful, sultry lead voice throughout the show, plus many memorable comic moments including the legendary "Sprinkler Dance".

Since day one, Chuck has grabbed any audience through his wit and masterful delivery of his featured songs. His comic portrayals of Bob Marley, Elvis, and Robert Paige send crowds into hysteria, but then Chuck can deliver a heartfelt powerful lead on Big Bad John that typically leaves people breathless. Chuck also co-wrote "Come on Back" and the danceable hit, "I Don't Need Nobody".

Mark claims his vocal musical influences (especially the crooners from the Rat Pack era), are a big part of why he is comfortable with the ballads and delivering the songs with the tender leads. Songs like Just My Imagination, The River, and Shower the People get full vocal passion and performance when Mark delivers. Mark co-wrote "She Comes Home to Me".

Glenn has spent many years with all eyes on him when he takes the stage... how can you not? Declaring that he made a career out of his height (or lack of), Glenn is a natural comic performer and shines in the light! And as you will see in the performance of "Wonderful Tonight", don't even try to limbo against him!
