The Andrews Sisters
Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the Andrews Sisters began their music careers when they were still in their teens. Mostly remembered for their music, rich in sweetness and optimism, the Andrews Sisters were loved by the many troops they tirelessly entertained during World War II.
They had Patty as the lead soprano, Maxene as the second soprano and LaVerne completed the sound with a resonant contralto or bass. The sisters' big break came in 1938 with Bei Mir Bist du Schoen, a Yiddish tune, which became the first million selling record for an all-female group. Between the late 1930s and the 1940s, the group was a frequent heard tune on the radio. Some of their songs included: Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Rum and Coca Cola and Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree. The sisters even performed with other popular artists such as Bing Crosby, Les Paul, Burl Ives, Danny Kaye, Carmen Miranda, Guy Lombardo, Ernest Tubbs, and the Glenn Miller Orchestra.
18 shows from 1945 & 1946.
