    Biography :

    New Castle's Four Friends began in high school in 1954 when Bill Hoffman, lead; Fred George, bass; Leslie George, and Bob Dolling began singing together. They have been working together ever since singing for record hops, civil programs, in churches and for charities.

    The boys received some fame in 1958 when they made "My Young And Foolish Heart" b/w "Save This Fallen Heart" For Fee Bee Record that sold pretty well.  In 1960, Leslie George dropped out of the group. Dolling was married and left the group. Hoffman and Fred George, not to be thwarted in their hopes of fame and fortune, sifted until they found two vocalists to replace Les George and Dolling.

    For two now Charles Beshero has been singing baritone and Bob Schweiktert is the quartet tenor. With the new members, they auditioned for Epic in 1961 to record a song written by Bill Hoffman. The label promised one single in March 1961 which never materialized.
