Biography
The Modernaires began in 1935 as a trio of schoolmates from Lafayette High School (Buffalo, New York). The members, Hal Dickinson, Chuck Goldstein, and Bill Conway, were called Don Juan-Two and Three, and had their first engagement at Buffalo's suburban Glen Falls Casino, with the Ted Fio Rito Orchestra. They then joined the Ozzie Nelson Band, and became known as The Three Wizards of Ozzie. They next recruited Ralph Brewster to make a quartet and, performing with the Fred Waring Orchestra, became The Modernaires. In 1937, they were featured on the Paul Whiteman radio show.
