Biography

Laverne Andrews and her sisters, Patty and Maxene, were one of the most successful womens singing groups, with 19 gold records and sales of nearly 100 million copies. The sisters began performing in the early 1930s when the Depression wiped out their fathers business. In 1937, the sisters scored their first big hit with Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen. In addition to Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, their best-known songs included Dont Sit Under the Apple Tree and Rum and Coca Cola. The trio officially broke up after the death of Laverne in 1967, and a suitable replacement could not be found.
