1950s Crooners and Doo Wop Groups

The late 1950s saw the birth of rock and roll music, most prominently when Elvis Presley hit the scene. Building up to this genre though were the crooners and doo-wop groups that started around the 1940s but hit its golden years a decade later. Although there was some overlap between the two styles of music, they mostly saw separate waves in popularity throughout the era. Here’s a playlist of some of the most famous of those musicians. You can listen to them in full on the Classmates.com spotify page. Who else would you add to this list?
