The Lennon Sisters to Play the Suncoast Showroom, 9/13-14
The Lennon Sisters made their TV debut on Christmas Eve 1955 on "The Lawrence Welk Show" when youngest member Janet was just nine years old. Following their successful debut, Welk professionally adopted the girls and The Lennon Sisters became regulars on the program every Saturday night for the next 13 years.
Later, the sisters entered the music scene with their first hit, "Tonight, You Belong to Me" reaching #15 on the charts in 1956. Labeled "America's Sweethearts of Song," they recorded their first album, "Let's Get Acquainted," in May of 1957.
In 1961, the group's single "Sad Movies (Make Me Cry)" reached #1, becoming their highest charting record. Other popular recordings include "Scarlet Ribbons," "Greensleeves," and Schubert's "Ave Maria."
Throughout the '70s, The Lennon Sisters toured extensively and made regular performances on "The Andy Williams Show." The group also appeared on "Family Feud," "Hollywood Squares" and "Tattletales."
The Lennon Sisters are comprised of original members Janet and Kathy and younger sister Mimi.
