We are familiar with Chicago band leader Husk O'Hare from his Gennett recordings as a band leader and the Vocalion record under his name. The Vocalion record I have read was probably not by his band but by a band he was lending his name to. I won this photo on ebay of O'Hare and his Three Girl Friends. The Three Girl Friends are not identified but might be a singing group from the time. Anyone know the identity of the Three Girl Friends? Nice to see a new picture of O'Hare as he was involved in the Chicago jazz scene of the 1920's.

.... the "Three Girl Friends" or as "The Three Waring Girls," but it is a different group. Much prettier.



They had a hit with Cole Porter's "Love for Sale" in 1930 [from the musical "The New Yorkers.].

Try also Berlin's "Let Me Sing and I'm Happy" where they do a bit along the lines of "The Rhythm Boys."

and Youmans's "Tea for Two." [Good harmonization]

I think the Three Girl Friends [Waring] are June Shafer, Ida Pearson, and Stella Friend.

Did they have the mumps or something when that picture was taken?

As you are looking at the photo ...

to the left of Husk is Peggy, to the right is Rita and above is Jeanne. They were from Chicago Illinois. They were with Husk from 1931 to 1934, touring the Midwest and broadcasting from the LaSalle Hotel in Chicago.

Such a nice surprise to see their photo! I search Husk's name every once in a while and each time I find more and more on their career!
