Dancin’ the Strand – The Sherrys

The Sherrys were an American girl group from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, active briefly in the 1960s.

The group came together in 1961 around Philadelphia singer Little Joe Cook, former lead singer of The Thrillers; it featured two of his daughters and their cousin. Initially they acted as a backup ensemble for local acts such as Bobby Rydell. In 1962, a dance craze called The Popeye shot to popularity, and the group recorded the tune “Pop Pop Pop-Pie” (written by Johnny Madara and Dave White of The Spokesmen) in hopes of capitalizing on it. The group was invited to perform on American Bandstand and the record peaked at #25 on the US Billboard R&B chart, and #35 on the Billboard Hot 100.
