The three girls that made up The Teen Trio -- Sandy Schneider and twin sisters, Jean and June Hendon -- actually began singing together in their preteen years in their home state of Michigan when they were known as The Three Chicks. After they joined the Pennsylvanians, Fred Waring renamed them The Teen Trio.
Fred Waring & the Pennsylvanians
During the time the girls were with the Pennsylvanians in the early 1950s, they recorded with the group, toured with the group, and appeared on their weekly CBS-TV show. They had a wonderfully unique and inimitable sound that was achieved through their incredibly great vocal harmony. For us Christmas music lovers, of course, they added great warmth, spice and charm to the legendary Fred Waring LP 'Twas The Night Before Christmas, via their solo efforts on the songs Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, and the album's title song, 'Twas The Night Before Christmas.
Mr. Waring once remarked that the Teen Trio was the greatest trio that ever sang for the Pennsylvanians. And coming from the man who was known as "The Man Who Taught America How To Sing," that's quite a compliment indeed. After their tenure with the Pennsylvanians, the girls became known as The Jaye Sisters (a name picked for them by the great Tommy Dorsey).
They initially recorded for Decca Records, and then later, Atlantic Records. Among the standout recordings they had during their Atlantic years were two songs that their good friend Bobby Darin wrote for them: Real Love and School's Out.
Jean, June and Sandy are all retired today and enjoying sunny climates far from their home state of Michigan: Jean and June now live in Florida, and Sandy in California. They have remained very close friends through the years and still get together occasionally, and when they do, they still sing together for old times' sake.
