Notes

John Howell organized the group of four young men a dozen years ago. These same four men are still together: The Four Saints. Howell himself plays 16 instruments, is the group's baritone, and contributes most of the writing and arranging for the foursome. Even though he's still in his early twenties, John has spent a collective 31 years taking music lessons on his various instruments.
Bob Erickson met John in Washington at the Junior High School age, and the two have been musicalizing ever since. Bob, one of the groups two tenors, adds trumpet, trombone, French horn, guitar and violin to the group's musical compliment, as well as instigating most of the comedy material that has made the group so well known.
Jerry DuChene, the other tenor of the quartet, is the only non-native of Everett, Washington, the birthplace of The Four Saints. Like the other members of the quartet, Jerry is a multi-honored musician, having a shelf full of cups, medals and statues attesting to not only his singing prowess but also to his talents on trumpet and trombone.
Doug Evans handles the bass vocal end of The Four Saints, and adds pantomime talents to the comedy end of the group. His instruments include piano, cello, French horn, trombone and trumpet.
