The Crystals

When Phil Spector discovered The Crystals, not one was yet out of high school.

They continued their successful recordings with five more TOP TEN records: Uptown, He’s A Rebel, He’s Sure The Boy I Love, Da Doo Ron Ron,  and Then He Kissed Me. Two of the TOP 50 most popular records in the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame belongs to The Crystals. The Crystals now consist of Dee Dee Kenniebrew, who was there from the very first recording, Patricia Pritchett-Lewis, and MelSoulTree.

The Crystals performed for TV Producer Roger King at his birthday party and in attendance were Danny Aiello, Kirk Douglas, Gladys Knight and many other celebrities. Roger came on stage to perform and dance along to our singing of “Da Doo Ron Ron, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, I’ll Be There, Hold On I’m Coming, Rescue Me, Dedicated To The One I Love, Be My Baby, Why do Fools Fall In Love, He’s A Rebel” and other hits.

“The Lettermen” singing trio founded by Jim Pike and joined by brother Gary Pike enjoyed an unprecedented (46) forty-six consecutive hit record albums on Billboard Magazine’s national charts, twenty hit singles, nine gold record albums, five Grammy nominations, a “CLEO” and with record, tape and CD sales more than $100 million worldwide. In October 2001, Jim and Gary as “The Lettermen” were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame.

Billboard Magazine referred to Jim and Gary Pike’s Lettermen as “The Greatest Romantic Vocal Group of All Time”. These guys became a legend, no less. And today the legend continues as REUNION!

At the height of The Lettermen’s fame, Jim Pike lost his voice was unable to sing. As a result, he had to find a replacement in the Lettermen trio and finally sold the “Lettermen” name in the late 70’s. At the end of a 10-year silence, Jim Pike miraculously regained his singing voice.

Because of overwhelming requests to reunite, Jim Pike and brother Gary, along with Ric de Azevedo, who gained fame as a member of “The King Family and “The King Cousins”, ABC television’s “First Family of Song”, have reunited their harmonic singing talents to now be known as “REUNION.”To visit the REUNION official website go here. http://www.reunionthesingingroup.com/
