The Danleers

Pete Grendysa, Bear Family, 1991

THE AMERICAN RHYTHM & blues vocal group was a development of the Pop groups that enjoyed heavy popularity from the 1910's into the 1950's. When you take those barbershop harmonies, add some hot jazz and jive, sprinkle with jubilee handclapping and gospel shouts, then mix well, you'll get the rhythm & blues vocal group style.
