I can't confirm the identification, but if they are the Foursome, they 
appeared in the thirties Broadway shows "Girl Crazy" and "Anything Goes".
IBDB dot com gives their names as Del Porter, Marshall Smith, Ray Johnson 
and Dwight Snyder.
Since "Anything Goes" was a Cole Porter show, you might assume the photo is 
from around 1934-35.
Ray Johnson is named as arranger for the group.  Del Porter was the most 
well known member.
You can dig up more about Porter from here...

Here is a photo (in reverse, note the Brunswick Records advert at the back)
of Cole Porter with an unidentified vocal group...
Dan Langan and Dennis Rooney informed they are The Foursome.
Anyone knows the names of these men? The tall one before the mic has
something familiar to me...
