About The Andrews Sisters
The most successful female group of all-time

The Andrews Sisters! LaVerne Andrews (contralto; 1911 - May 8, 1967),
Maxene Andrews (high harmony; 1916 - 1995)
and Patty Andrews (lead; born 1918).
All were born in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The Andrews Sisters began their career imitating the Boswell Sisters (well-known during the 1930's).

They sang with various dance bands and toured on vaudeville.

In 1937, they came to national attention through their radio broadcasts and recordings.

Their music entertained allied troops wolrldwide during World War ll, and helped sell war bonds. They toured and performed for soldiers serving overseas.

They appeared in several films. It was during this period that they recorded many songs with Bing Crosby. In fact, they were so popular that after the war they discovered that some of their recordings had been smuggled into Germany -- after the labels had been changed to read "Hitler's Marching Songs."

After the war, the sisters performed in clubs throughout the U.S.

Their last appearance together was in 1962 on The Dean Martin Show. Laverne, who had cancer, retired soon after; she died five years later, in 1967.

Maxene and Patty were silent for some time, until Bette Middler recorded a cover of their song "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy."

Throughout the 70's they began touring again, both separately and together. Maxine released a solo album in 1986.

The sisters had sold over 60 million records during their career and was inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1998.

Hit records:

  • Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen (1937)
  • I'll Be with You in Apple Blossom Time (1941)
  • Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy (1941)
  • Don't sit under the Apple Tree (1942)
  • Rum and Coca-Cola (1944)
  • Underneath the Arches (1948)
  • Here Comes Santa Claus (1950)
