- When Phil Spector
discovered The Crystals, not one was yet out of high school. Their
first recording, There's No Other (Like My Baby) was also
their first hit which catapulted them straight to the "Apollo" theatre.
They continued their successful recordings with five more TOP TEN
records: Uptown, He's A Rebel, He's Sure The Boy I Love, Da Doo Ron
Ron, and Then He Kissed Me. Two of the TOP 50 most popular
records in the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame belong to The Crystals. The
group has scaled from five members to three. The Crystals now consist
of Dee Dee Kenniebrew, who was there from the very first recording,
Patricia Pritchett-Lewis and MelSoulTree.
- The Crystals perform a lot
of package shows (combined acts on the bill), amphitheaters,
conventions, state fairs, and outdoor parks. The audiences are getting
more diverse with youngsters from 9 years old and up coming with
parents and grandparents to see the acts they hear singing in the
movies that are so often utilize their music today.
- The biggest thrill came to
The Crystals when TV Producer Roger King asked them to perform at his
birthday party at his private beach house. In the audience was Danny
Aiello, Kirk Douglas, Gladys Knight and many other celebrities. Roger
came on stage to perform and dance along to our singing of "Da Doo Ron
Ron, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Ain't No Mountain High Enough, I'll Be
There, Hold On I'm Coming, Rescue Me, Dedicated To The One I Love, Be
My Baby, Why do Fools Fall In Love, He's A Rebel" and other hits. A
good time was had by all.
- The Crystals have a high energy show
"that keep them trim and fit" and our audiences asking for more. We
keep them wondering "can these really be The Crystals?" Dee
Dee says, "oh yes I am."
