We are a Singers Club, founded by singers, run by singers, and produced by singers dedicated to keeping the music of our generation alive. 

 

Doo-wop is a genre of music that was developed in African-American communities in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Baltimore, Newark, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Detroit, Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles in the 1940s, achieving mainstream popularity in the 1950s and early 1960s. Built upon vocal harmony, doo-wop was one of the most mainstream, pop-oriented R&B styles of it's time.

 

The term doo-wop is derived from the sounds made by the group as they provided harmonic background for the lead singer.

 

The roots of the doo-wop style can be found as early as the records of the Mills Brothers and the Ink Spots in the 1930s and ’40s. The Mills Brothers turned small-group harmony into an art form when, in many of their recordings, they used their vocal harmony to simulate the sound of string or reed sections. The Ink Spots established the preeminence of the tenor and bass singers as members of the pop vocal ensemble, and their influence can be heard in rhythm-and-blues music beginning in the 1940s (in records by the Ravens), and throughout the ’50s, and '60s.
