The Undertakers

At least three artists have used the name The Undertakers: 1) A british invasion group of the early 1960s remembered for songs like "Just a Little Bit" and "I Fell in Love." 2) The Undertakers were Kevin Shapen, Jason Hill, Pat Yonally and Todd Kinner, a garage punk revival band from Eugene, Oregon. Formed in 1991 by five high school dropouts that were more concerned about chicks and beer than if they were gonna land a top 100 hit. Influenced by The Sonics, Wailers, Kingsmen and countless others, The Undertakers prided themselves on raw energy and teen anger.

The Swinging Blue Jeans

The Swinging Blue Jeans are a five piece 1960s British merseybeat band, best known for their proto-rave-up hit single "Hippy Hippy Shake". Intriguingly, while "Hippy Hippy Shake" sounds rather Beatles-clone like, The Beatles did in fact do a cover version of this song for the BBC. The beat group had a three year spell of moderate success, flying along with the all-pervading merseybeat success story. Once the novelty started to pale, the hits dried up, and the band eventually retired to the oldies circuit.

The Velvelettes

The Velvelettes were a 60's femal vocal group founded in 1961 by sisters Carolyn and Millie Gill with cousins Bertha Barbee-McNeal and Norma Barbee (both from Flint, Michigan) on the Western Michigan University campus, where they were students. The group signed to Motown Records, but weren't given top priority, as other female vocal groups were attracting audiences and recording hits. While the group awaited their chance at stardom, they recorded backing vocals for more established Motown girl groups, including The Marvelettes, Martha & The Vandellas, and The Supremes.
