    Biography :

    After their last single on Modern Records, Willie Davis and Aaron Collins formed a new Cadets after Dub Jones left to become the bass of Coasters in 1958, at that time at the peak of their success. The new Cadets were Thomas Miller, baritone, and George Hollis, bass, both of the Flairs (ABC).

    After two singles in 1960 the Cadets (actually half Cadets, half Flairs) were ready to call it a career, but in name only; with Randolph Jones subbing for Hollis on bass, the quartet became the Peppers in 1961 singing "One More Chance" on Ensign.  In 1961, with Hollis back on bass, the group became the Flares.
