This harmony vocal group was formed in 1925 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA by the McMichael brothers, Ted (4 April 1908, Marshalltown, Iowa, USA, d. 27 February 2001, Camarillo, California, USA; baritone), Judd (b. George Edward McMichael, 1 August 1906, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, d. 30 October 1989, Thousand Oaks, California, USA; tenor) and Joe (b. 16 January 1916, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, d. 12 February 1944, Los Angeles, California, USA; tenor). In 1926 Eddie Dunsteder invited them on to his radio show in Minneapolis and called them the Mystery Trio. Later they toured the country as the Personality Boys after meeting band leader Joe Haymes. By 1930 Cheri McKay had been added to the trio to sing melody lines (the role which their mother had originally taken) and they became the Merry Macs. The group signed to Victor Records in 1932 and released In The Little White Church On The Hill. They also appeared at the Chicago Theatre and appeared on NBC...
