Vocalists
    Formed in 1959 as The Val-Airs in Turtle Creek, Pennsylvania
    Original line-up:
    Bill Burkette (lead baritone)
    Don Miller (baritone)
    Hugh Geyer (first tenor)
    Chuck Blasko (second tenor)
    Recorded 'You're The One,' 'Five O'Clock World,' 'Magic Town,' 'The Land Of Milk And Honey,' 'Turn Around, Look At Me,' 'My Special Angel' and 'Till'
    They changed their name to try to win local popularity, as the Vogue Terrace was a teenage dance hall near their hometown.
    They needed six years before they hit it big with 'You're the One.'
    Once the '70s came, they fell out of favor and the hits dried up.
    A businessman bought the trademark name of The Vogues and in the 2000s booked singers under the title without one original member performing.
    They worked hard for a local Pittsburgh record company, and their efforts paid off big time in 1965.
    'You're The One' and 'Five O'Clock World' both hit #4 on Billboard's Singles chart in 1965.
    Three years later, they struck gold again, with both 'Turn Around, Look At Me' and 'My Special Angel' reaching #7.
    Blasko lobbied Congress to make changes in trademark laws, and subsequently was allowed to go from touring as Chuck Blasko's Five O'clock World Reunion to Chuck Blasko & The Vogues.
    The trademark owner realized the error of his ways and signed two of the four original Vogues (Burkette & Geyer) to perform.
    In 2001, they were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame.
