Extended History

Four Renegades

Every gold medal quartet crowned by the Society in its 50-plus year history has been a great one. A handful - the Schmitt Brothers, Confederates, The Suntones and a few others - went on to become legends. The Four Renegades, 1965 champions, was one of the legends.

Organized in 1957 for the Illinois District contest, the Renegades originally consisted of Jim Foley, bari; Joe Sullivan, lead; Warren "Buzz" Haeger, tenor; and Tom Felgen, bass. Joe left the quartet in 1963 and was replaced by Ben Williams. For the next 14 years, by personal appearances, radio, TV and records, they would bring pleasure literally to millions.

In their climb to the top they had paid their dues: Ninth in Dallas in 1960, seventh in '61, third in '62 and '63, second in '64. Finally, in 1965 in Boston, The Renegades heard the announcement they had worked so hard to earn - gold medalist.
