Joe Bennett and the Sparkletones was a teenage rock 'n roll group from Spartanburg, SC, consisting of Joe Bennett (lead vocals lead guitar), Howard Childress (vocal, guitar), Wayne Arthur (vocal, bass), and Jimmy Denton (drums), that charted Billboard with a number 17 pop hit in 1957 with "Black Slacks." Joe Bennett and The Sparkletones were a remarkable group of teenagers who wrote and played almost all their own material in the late '50s. They scored only a few hits -- the most successful of which was "Black Slacks," with "Penny Loafers and Bobby Socks" charting Billboard in 1957. Some Sparkletones appearances included, Ted Mack‘s Original Amateur Hour, twice on the Ed Sullivan Show, Nat King Cole Show, twice on Dick Clark's American Bandstand as the Sparkletones, and one appearance with just Joe Bennett, twice on the Alan Freed Show. During a 13 week show at the Royal Nevada Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Sparkletones were pleasantly surprised with a visit from Elvis at their concert and a personal visit and photo session with Elvis in their dressing room after their performance. Joe Bennett and the Sparkletones toured for about three years and disbanded in October 1960. Read more on Last.fm.
