Ames Brothers

The Ames Brothers were a singing quartet from Malden, Massachusetts who were particularly famous in the 1950s for their traditional pop music hits.

Their name was originally Urick, and the name "The Ames Brothers" was suggested for them by the playwright Abe Burroughs when the Urick Brothers first went from the Boston area to New York to perform. One of the brothers, Ed, (born July 9, 1927), later went on to become a well-known soloist. The other brothers were Joe (born May 3, 1921), Gene (born February 13, 1923), and Vic (May 20, 1925-January 23, 1978).

They were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1998.
