The Sharpees were an American soul group with Vernon Guy, Benny Sharp, Stacy Johnson, and lead singer Herbert Reeves.
Originally from St. Louis, they made their name in 1965 with the record "Do The 45". They stayed together in one form or another until 1972 when Herbert Reeves was murdered. They typified the harder edge sound of Chicago Soul. A super job by Eddie Silvers on the arrangement for the One-derful! Records of Chicago.
