The Tigers were arguably Japan's most popular band of the Group Sounds era. The group featured Kenji Sawada as their lead singer, and were signed by Watanabe Productions.
The group was first named Funnys and was formed in 1966. They changed their name to The Tigers on their first TV performance on 15 November 1966. They appeared in several Japanese movies in the late 1960s.
The Tigers recorded Smile for Me, composed by Barry and Maurice Gibb, which was released as a single in July 1969 in the UK and Japan.
On 24 January 1971, The Tigers held their last concert The Tigers Beautiful Concert at the Nippon Budokan. After The Tigers broke up, Sawada formed the first Japanese supergroup, PYG, in 1971.
In 1981, they reunited, but in 1983 broke up again.
