Donovan, Mark and Tony
Thought I would share this with all that may not have seen it. I am sure Darren will succeed in all his future endeavors and I am sure we are all anxious to see a show before he leaves.
Best of Luck Darren, Theresa

Hi Everyone,
I am writing to share the following announcement from The Lettermen with all of you.

The Lettermen are pleased to announce the return of the tremendously talented Mark Preston as an official member of The Lettermen. Mark will take the stage again with The Lettermen beginning in January 2006. Mark originally joined The Lettermen twenty-one years ago, on September 4, 1984-the very same day that Donovan Tea became a Letterman. This spectacular configuration enjoyed performing together across the United States for four years until Marks departure in September 1988. Prior to his original stint with The Lettermen, Mark was a featured performer at such hotels as The Silverbird, The Dunes, The Marina, and The Sahara in Las Vegas, as well as Harrahs in Reno and Lake Tahoe. Mark also appeared in such hit television series as "Vega$". In 1986, Tony Butala, Donovan Tea and Mark Preston recorded what was to be the last vinyl album that The Lettermen ever released, entitled Why I Love Her. Mark also appeared on The Lettermen - It Feels Like Christmas, The Lettermen Best Hits (a Japanese release), and the singles, It Feels Like Christmas/I Believe and Proud Lady Of America/Star Spangled Banner. Since his departure from The Lettermen in 1988, Mark went on to establish himself as one of the top entertainers in the cruise ship industry, allowing him to travel the world-over, filling showrooms, delighting audiences of all ages and performing on such distinguished cruise lines as Celebrity/Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Princess, Holland America, Royal Viking, Cunard, Crystal, Sitmar and Admiral. Listening to that tall, dark, handsome vocalist again performing harmoniously with The Lettermen, and soloing on such songs as Lady, This Is The Moment, Copa Cabana, My Way and Unanswered Prayers, will be an exquisite pleasure for Lettermen audiences. Darren Dowler has been a member of The Lettermen since October 1995. His contract with The Lettermen will expire on December 31, 2005, at which time he will begin pursuing other interests away from The Lettermen. We have enjoyed the time he has devoted to the group, appreciate his personality and talent, and wish him well in all of his endeavors. We will be following and supporting his career and look forward to seeing him during Lettermen travels worldwide.
