John Borneman (tenor), Roger Axworthy (lead), T.J. Marker (bass), Ted Nichols (baritone)

June, 1960.
The first long-running Dapper Dans quartet. John Borneman and T.J. Marker both came from Fred Waring and His Pennsylvanians along with original baritone George Pillon (no photo available) and original lead Roy Russell (no photo available) when the Dapper Dans began in the summer of 1959. Entertainment Director Tommy Walker had asked stage manager Chuck Corson (previously a stage manager for Fred Waring) to find a barbershop quartet for Main Street, and so Corson brought in some men he knew from Fred Waring. Ted Nichols (had also been with Waring) came in later when George Pillon retired and Roger Axworthy (not from Waring) came in when Roy Russell retired from the Dappers around Labor Day of 1959.
