Jamies

  • The Jamies were an American singing group, led by Tom and Serena Jameson.
  • The group's 1958 single for Epic Records, "Summertime, Summertime", hit #26 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
  • Both "Summertime" and its flip side, "Searching for You", are often described as doo-wop, because of their time period and their a-capella harmonies (with a harpsichord backing on "Summertime"). However, both songs may also be described as pop versions of Sacred Harp styles; the group started as church singers.
  • Several singles (many written or co-written by members Jameson and Feller) followed "Summertime", none of them hits. In 1962, they re-released "Summertime, Summertime" and hit again, this time peaking at #38
  • The song's fame far eclipsed the band's; The Fortunes, The Doodletown Pipers, Hobby Horse, Jan & Dean, The Legendary Masked Surfers, Mungo Jerry, and Sha Na Na would all cover the tune, and it was used in commercials for Buick and Applebee's.[2]. It was also prominently featured in the 1978 motion picture Fingers
