1957 - The Wind / Que Pasa? (What’s Happening) (Stepp 236)
Singer and songwriter Simon Barbee formed The Barbee's with his nieces Bertha, Norma and Joyce Barbee. Bertha and Norma were cousins and Joyce a cousin by marriage. The Girls were twelve, thirteen and fourteen at the time.
The group got some local gigs in Flint, Michigan and the surrounding towns, and was very well received. They recorded in 1957 The Wind b/w Que Pasa? for the small Stepp labe . Carolyn and Mildred Gill, Norma and Bertha Barbee, and Betty Kelley launched The Velvelettes in 1962.
