Andrews Sisters

Mostly remembered for their music, rich in sweetness and optimism, the Andrews Sisters were loved by the many troops they tirelessly entertained during World War II. During their career, the amazing trio recorded more than 1,800 songs and sold over 90 million records. Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the Andrews Sisters began their music careers when they were still in their teens. In 1932, they began singing accompanied by the Larry Rich Orchestra. Together, they toured the Midwest and performed in vaudevilles. Another group of sisters, the Boswell Sisters, of New Orleans, influenced the Andrews Sisters' Dixieland style. Soon, the Andrews trio broadened their style to include ballads of the swing era, South American dance songs, boogie woogie and other novelty sounds.

In 1937, they were discovered by Dave Kapp, who heard them over a taxi cab radio in 1937 during a live band remote, signed them to Decca Records. Levy who acted as their manager would later marry Maxene. The sisters' big break came in 1938 with Bei Mir Bist du Schoen, a Yiddish tune, which became the first million selling record for an all-female group. Between the late 1930s and the 1940s, the group was a frequent heard tune on the radio.
