They were all members of the school band and sang with the band at dances and gatherings. They quickly became a household name. Their first recording was “Ev’rybody Pony” and “Tick Tick Tock”. This record showed at #2 on Billboard with a bullet. The songs were recorded on the Ritchie Label and became a big hit for the group. They followed up with several other songs. Members of the original group are: Teddy Henry, Eugene Callaway, Donald Jackson, Larry Davis, Gerald Hamilton, and Jerome Jefferson. Today’s group consists of: Eugene Calloway, Gerald Hamilton, Jerome Jefferson and Larry Davis. Teddy and Donald passed away several years ago and are sadly missed by The Continentals.
