Biography

Guys ‘n’ Dolls (sometimes tagged “Guys n’ Dolls” or “Guys ‘n Dolls”) were a 1970s UK vocal group. They secured a couple of Top Ten hits in the UK Singles Chart, with the songs “There’s A Whole Lot Of Loving” and “You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me”.

Guys ‘n’ Dolls were formed in 1974, after Ammo Produductions held auditions for three girls and three boys to start the band.

The six members of the new group, Paul Griggs, David Van Day, Thereza Bazar, Dominic Grant, Martine Howard, and Julie Forsyth, first met in November 1974. They released their first hit single, “There’s a Whole Lot Of Loving” in January 1975 (this was actually recorded by session singers, and the group were later discovered not to have actually recorded the original).

In the six years that followed, the group released several more hits, including “Here I Go Again” (1975) and “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me” (1976). In 1978 they shared the stage with Frank Sinatra at the Royal Festival Hall in London.

In 1977 the group had a Number one in both the Netherlands and Flanders with “You’re My World”, formerly made famous by Cilla Black.

(By 1977, Van Day and Bazar had left the band but continued to have success as Dollar.)

Guys n’ Dolls finished as a unit in December 1985, having spent eleven years together. Grant and Forsyth performed as a duo and had another five hits in the Netherlands.
