The unique blend of surging vocals, thrilling harmony, whacked out humor and classic folk music of this unique trio continue to earn them their title as The Fabulous Limeliters! The Limeliters launched their career in 1959 at San Francisco’s famous “Hungry i” and before long, founding members Alex Hassilev, Lou Gottlieb, and Glenn Yarbrough emerged as one of the dominant voices of the early 1960’s folk music scene. A string of best-selling albums for RCA Records and frequent television appearances quickly made The Limeliters a household name.
Throughout the ensuing years, the lineup has featured several spectacularly talented new members, but The Limeliters have never deviated from the integrity of the fabulous sound that they pioneered. With their energy and enthusiasm undiminished and undaunted, current members Don Marovich, Andy Corwin, and Gaylan Taylor remain as exciting an act as the genre has produced.
Don Marovich is a journeyman musician who has played professionally since 1975. Don’s early roots were in barbershop singing and he placed 2nd & 3rd in consecutive national competitions. Don went on to lead several popular music groups as well as a very active solo career in front of thousands of diverse audiences. In the 80s, Don, as a band leader, was the subject of a one hour music special that aired in 36 states on ABC television. Besides being a singer/songwriter, he also plays guitar, banjo and mandolin. He brings his considerable skill and experience to the Limeliters with great enthusiasm.
Bass player Andy Corwin is a performer and songwriter with an offbeat sense of humor and an outrageous repertoire of songs. In 2005, he won top honors at the Kerrville Folk Festival “New Folk” songwriting competition. In addition to The Limeliters, Andy also is a member of the folk/comedy duo: “Actual Size”. During the 1990’s, he was a member of the politically incorrect, satirical, folk quartet “The Foreman”. A native New Yorker, Andy is also an accomplished TV editor and director whose work has appeared on NBC, The History Channel, The Discovery Network, Animal Planet, A&E, and HGTV.
Gaylan Taylor’s professional career began in 1967 with the Win’ Jammers and in the 1970’s as a member of The New Christy Minstrels. In 2005, Gaylan toured with Glenn Yarbrough as the leader of Glenn’s Havenstock River Band. In addition to guitar and vocals, Gaylan plays bass and harmonica and has written well over 200 songs, two of which are on the Limeliter’s CD “Right From the Start”. A self-proclaimed “recording studio junkie”, Gaylan is equally comfortable as a vocalist, vocal arranger, instrumentalist, engineer, or producer. He is a consummate professional in terms of performance and conduct.
