    Biography :

    This group formed in 1957 while stationed with the US Army in Hawaii. They recorded with producer Bob Bertram (of 'Susie Darlin’' by Robin Luke fame) for his Hawaii-based International label in the late 1950s. Unfortunately, The Lucky Charms recordings were never released. Shame Bertram pushed Robin and left the Lucky Charms on the shelf.

    Master tapes of the sessions were sold and subsequently released on a Starfire LP in 1981. Ira Johnson - lead, Larry Richardson - 1st Tenor, George Richardson - 2d Tenor, Harold Wells - Baritone & Edwin Cyrus - Bass; These five GI's from Schofield Barracks hit some fine notes. The Lucky Charms opened for Elvis Presley in Honolulu who loved the Lead singer Ira Johnson.
