Big band singing trio from the late [[TheGreatDepression 1930s]] through the early [[TheFifties 1950s]], although their biggest years were during WorldWarTwo. Prolific and a household name for years, they consisted of Patty ([[EveryoneLovesBlondes blonde]], and the [[FaceOfTheBand leader]], 1918-2013), [=LaVerne=] ([[FieryRedhead redhead]], 1911-1967) and Maxene ([[BrainyBrunette brunette]], 1916-1995). They worked with the famous Big Bands of the era, although they resented that they put the emphasis on vocals.

They became one of the most popular female close harmony groups of the first half of the 20th century and released a number of famous {{Ear Worm}}s that have been in a number of video games and movies. They inspired many artists after them, and are the TropeMaker for BlondeBrunetteRedhead.

Also, many mp3 websites [[MisattributedSong fail to differentiate]] them and the [=McGuire=] Sisters. They're also sometimes mistaken for the Boswell Sisters, an earlier Jazz trio with some very strong stylistic similarities.
