Biography

There are multiple artists with this name:

1) The four-man vocal group, originally calling themselves The Val-Aires,
began working together in the late 1950’s. Living in the small town of
Turtle Creek Pennsylvania, they got their start as typical high
school teenagers, having fun in the halls of Turtle Creek High School.
They quickly gained popularity. Their unique vocal sound got them a
contract with a small record label known as Co & Ce.

Turtle Creek (always pronounced turtle crick by Pittsburghers) in
the 1950’s and 1960’s was known as a tight-knit industrial town, something typical of suburban Pittsburgh during those times. Nearby factories churned out steel and trains whistled by while this group churned out ballads and songs that would take part in the roots of the evolving Rock and Roll era.

The Val-Aires quickly changed the name of the group and downsized from five members to four members to become the popular group that we all know: The Vogues®. Several hit albums followed until the popularity of vocal groups declined during the up rise of Rock and Roll.

Now the group’s name is owned by Stan Elich and
Bengar, Inc. And Hugh Geyer is back performing with Stan’s group after
a 34-year break. Many agree that Hugh is the sound of The Vogues.

Vocal groups may have experienced a decline in the 70’s and 80’s, but
