From ‘Always a tight family’ : Brothers have performed for years throughout the Carbon Valley By Kimberly Pursel (excerpt) :
In 1969, Nick, Felix, Roy and Max Martinez started a singing quartet and called themselves The Four M’s. Today, the brothers still perform for weddings and events, such as Firestone’s Fourth of July Centennial Celebration held last year.

“We have recorded over five records,” said Felix.

The Four M’s perform a variety of music and for fun they’ll impersonate the likes of Willie Nelson, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart and Elvis Presley.

The brothers have performed for many benefits and fundraisers over the years throughout the Carbon Valley.

“I would say we have raised over $1 million over the last 40 years,” Max said.
