They began in their hometown of Newport, Rhode Island, singing and entertaining in local restaurants, clubs and family parties. Today they're based in Santa Monica, California, have hit records and smash albums galore and tour the country in SRO concerts yearly. Originally a male group (with oldest brother Bill, who's gone solo) they added their mother, Barbara, and little sister Susan along the way. All in all, they're a happy—and talented—family group.
