Big band singing trio from the late 1930s through the early 1950s, although their biggest years were during World War Two. Prolific and a household name for years, they consisted of Patty (blonde, and the leader), Laverne (redhead) and Maxene (brunette). They worked with the famous Big Bands of the era, although they resented that they put the emphasis on vocals.
The sisters pioneered close vocal harmonies and released a number of famous Ear Worms that have been in a number of video games and movies. They inspired many artists after them, and are the Trope Maker for Blonde, Brunette, Redhead.
Also, many mp3 websites fail to differentiate them and the McGuire Sisters.
