When it comes to music, you can tell when a performer values the art like the greats that have gone down in history as the best. Other times you can tell they are just in it for the fame like many of today’s pop artists.
While Elvis Presley was one of the few artists who could combine talent with his personality to create a music legacy, he was not the only performer to go down in history as amazing. But with over 1200 live performances throughout his career, Elvis knew a thing or two about wooing a crowd.
Below you have to see the Collins Kids perform. This rockabilly brother-sister duo from the 1950s will knock you off your feet.
If you have never had the pleasure to witness the Collins Kids perform, then you’re in for a treat. The video below is rather impressive.
The impressive Collins Kids group consists of Lorrie who is the eldest sibling. She is the main singer and has an amazing voice. Her younger brother, Larry is the guitar player who pounds away on a massive double neck guitar in the video below.
The Collins Kids were known for their popular hit songs “Hop, Skip and Jump,” “Beetle Bug Bop,” and “Hoy Hoy.” In 1954, the Collins Kids got their start on the radio program called Town Hall Party.
But they were far too good to stay on that program forever. They were eventually picked up and became regulars on a TV program called “Tex Ritter’s Ranch Party.”
However, the Collins Kids didn’t just make headlines for their music. Lorrier was actually teen heartthrob Ricky Nelson’s first public girlfriend. And that made a lot of teenage girls very jealous.
