The Clark Brothers James and Steve grew up in Philadelphia PA in a Gospel-Singing Family.
Their first engagement was at the Cotton Club at 15 and 17 years young.
Frank Sinatra’s suggestion that they move to the United Kingdom after the war – WWII – most probably saved their careers, their first British performance was for King George VI .
They wrote hits for Max Bygraves, appeared at the London Palladium; opened a University of Show business in London, Cliff Richard and Bonnie Langford were among their pupils.
