Abstract:Interview with Springfield’s first Rock and Roll band; the Harmony brothers discuss their musical career as the “teen idol” Harmony Boys in the 1950s. With a sound similar to the more well-known Everly Brothers, the brothers became local favorites with a fan club and performed at local clubs, televisions station music shows, and Uncle Tom’s Barn Dance in Decatur. They discuss playing at the “Splatter Platter Party” in St. Louis with other artists such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Mann (who sang “Mona Lisa”), Dee Clark, and the Jesters. They also performed on the “The Hop” with Annette Funicello.
