The Coronets


The Coronets | Uncle Marv | tc002

The Coronets were Sam and William Griggs, Lester Russaw, Charles Carruthers and George Lewis, and in 1953 they signed with Chess Records who had been sent some demo discs. They were not happy with the band or arrangements that came out of their recording session, but it yielded a hit: Nadine, later covered by The Dells. The group did not stay with Chess Records.
