LaVerne Andrews (At top, with Patty at centre, and Maxene at bottom)


American contralto singer, the eldest of the three siblings known as The Andrews Sisters, a close harmony singing group of the swing and boogie-woogie eras. Throughout their long career, the sisters sold well over 75 million records. Their 1941 hit "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" can be considered an early example of rhythm and blues or jump blues.

LaVerne Andrews married Lou Rogers, a trumpet player in Vic Schoen's band, in 1948, and remained with him until her death on 8 May 1967 from cancer (he died in 1995).
