Profile:
UK harmony vocal group. Active from the 1950s.
The group formed in Leicester and comprised four former pupils of Moat Boys School (Joe Smith, Stan Jones, Bob Wragg, and Leon Fisk) and London-born Nicky Clarke. After winning a Butlins talent content, they became a fixture on the TV show Six-Five Special, becoming household names. They went on to be regular performers on Oh Boy! in the late 1950s.They continued to perform through the 1960s, and appeared on other British TV shows such as Val Parnell's Startime, Thank Your Lucky Stars, All That Jazz, Sunday Night at the London Palladium, Comedy Bandbox, Frost on Sunday, and Sez Les, and on US television on Showtime. They split up in the early 1970s, but reunited in 1988 to perform at fellow Oh Boy! star Cliff Richard's concert celebrating thirty years in the entertainment business in 1988, and continued to perform around the UK.

The group have been described as "Britain's first boy band".
