    Biography :

    According to Class & Rendezvous Vocal Groups, The Searchers were another spin-off from the Hollywood Flames. We do not know their full lineup but it appears to have included artists including Bobby Day and Earl Nelson (who always seemed to be in the Class recording studio for one reason or another) and Jesse Belvin. The two sides of their only single, "Wow-Wow Baby” / "Ooo Wee”’ (Class 223), have similar titles and energy. The beginning of "Wow-Wow Baby” is explosive while “Ooo Wee" sounds a lot like "Over And Over" by Bobby Day and the Satellites, issued on Class 229 during the same time period.
