When Phil Spector discovered The Crystals, not one of the members was yet out of high school. The group's first recording was also their first hit and catapulted them straight to the Apollo Theater. They continued with five more top ten records, "He's a Rebel," "Da Doo Ron Ron," and "And Then He Kissed Me" being the most popular.
The three ladies in today's Crystals perform regularly at outdoor festivals, conventions and private parties, and they often perform on stage with other musical groups. Audiences of all ages enjoy their high-energy show.
