The Mel-Tones

Profile:
American modern vocal group, they appeared in several motion pictures and numerous radio shows, later the name was expanded to "Mel Tormé and the Mel-Tones" in recognition of Mel Tormé's dual role as the arranger and solo vocalist. The group disbanded in 1945 due to members being drafted to army service.

Members were Bernie Parke, Diz Disruhd, Betty Beveridge, and Ginny O'Connor, plus Tormé who doubled as arranger. Later Disruhd was replaced by Les Baxter.
