Biography

The original group: Joe Bennett (lead vocal, lead
guitar), Wayne Arthur (upright bass,), Howard
“Sparky” Childress (guitar), and Jimmy Denton
(drums).

In October 1957, their hit song, “Black Slacks”,
charted No. 17 on the Billboard Charts and
stayed in that position for more than four
consecutive months. “Penny Loafers and Bobby
Socks” also charted that same year. These songs
were hits on the ABC-Parmount Label at the
same time rock ‘n roll was breaking out!
