Started in 1992 by Mark Gilman and Jay Smith as The DeRita Sisters And Junior, around at 2000 shortened the name to Derita Sisters.
"The name was stolen from an old 1920s vaudeville team called The DeRita Sisters And Junior. Junior was actually Curly-Joe DeRita who joined the final incarnation of The Three Stooges comedy team in the 1960s. It was a joke band at the time and we thought it was funny, but nobody else got the joke. Eventually we just shortened the name to The DeRita Sisters".
