    The gals are Dottie Hayes and Millie Weaver and they've been singing together from 1953, making their name a household word among theatre-goers around the nation. The act really got started when Dottie's father. The well known Cleveland producer Billie Hitt, overheard the girls harmonizing together in their dressing along with swing artist Bea Booze and Ruth Brown. Billie pricked his ears sensed that they really had something there, and organized them into a quartet known as the Coppertones.

    The group only worked together a short while when miss Booze returned to Night-Clubs and theater  dates as a single as the See See Rider Girl and Ruth went to New York to appear at a Greenwich Village club. Dottie And Millie stuck together and changed their name to the Copperettes which they have now incorporated as a business partnership. After many appearances the girls recorded  "True Love Is Missing" and "If You Asked Me" on the Groove label, the single was released as The Two Sweethearts . 11 years later, the girls recorded again, they were known as Dottie & Millie on Topper.
