The Ink Spots

Ink Spots

Male Vintage Quartet from Davie, FL

The Ink Spots' story begins in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1932, when four young men - Deek Watson, Charles Fuqua, Orville "Hoppy" Jones and Jerry Daniels - formed the first version of the group. The quartet performed as the Riff Brothers and the Percolating Puppies before settling on the Ink Spots name. In search of a recording contract, the group headed to New York City, where they met up with singer Bill Kenny, who replaced Daniels as the group's lead tenor in 1936. Three years later, The Ink Spots had their first million-selling record, "If I Didn't Care'. The song, which would be their biggest hit, ultimately sold 19 million copies.

Over the years, their unique style, sound and elegant stage presence have delighted audiences worldwide. The Ink Spots continue to delight audiences with the wonderful harmonies and arrangements that have made the group a musical legend around the world.

With over 80 hit records and numerous million sellers, audiences .return again and again. Such presenters as the London Palladium, Harlem's Apollo Theater, the Houston and Atlanta Symphonies, colleges and leading venues around the world have brought the high energy and all-around professionalism of the famous Ink Spots to their stage.
