From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

The Lennon Sisters were a singing group consisting of four siblings:

  • Dianne (born December 1, 1939)
  • Peggy (born April 8, 1941)
  • Kathy (born August 22, 1942)
  • Janet (born June 15, 1946)

They were all born in Los Angeles, California.

These singers debuted on The Lawrence Welk Show in 1955. They were a mainstay on the show until they left to start a career of their own in 1968. The quartet was only three members from 1960 to 1964; oldest sister Dianne got married, left the group, and then rejoined them again.

In 1969, the sisters starred in their own variety show, Jimmy Durante Presents the Lennon Sisters Hour. Six weeks before the show premiered, the sisters were forced to deal with the shooting death of their father, by a deranged fan. The show lasted one season.

In the 1970s, the sisters performed regularly on The Andy Williams Show, and toured with Williams across the country. From 1994 to 2004, the quartet performed as headliners at the Welk Champagne Theater in the Ozark community of Branson,Missouri. When Peggy retired from singing in 1999, younger sister Mimi took her place, and when Dianne left for a second time in 2001, the act became a trio again for the rest of it's run in Branson.

They are not related to the former Beatle member John Lennon, who died in 1980.
