    Biography :

    The Coolbreezers started singing as a gospel group in Wash. D.C. and switched to doo-wop. Members were Joe Reuth, Richard Steward, Bob Armstrong, William Primrose, Earl J. Williams, and Sonny Williams. Bea Williams, sister of Earl and Sonny Williams, assumed the role of manager and had them record some rhythm and blues demos that she sent to New York for evaluation.


    As a result,  ABC Paramount had them record one record that went nowhere , Bea Williams then started her own label, BALE, and released two singles by the Coolbreezers in 1957: “The Greatest Love Of All” / “Eda Weda Bug” and “Let Christmas Ring” / “Hello Mr. New Year.” Earl Williams also sang bass for the Twilighters on Marshall.
