Biography

Savannah, Georgia, USA
Popular dark-haired "Big Band" singer Connie Haines may have been petite in size (less than 5' tall) but she possessed a sturdy set of pipes to compensate and was adored by her large fan base during the swinging war years. Performing alongside an equally young Frank Sinatra in both the Harry James and Tommy Dorsey bands way back when, she was known for her cool, doll-like vocals, quivery vibrato, and zesty, rhythmic stylings -- 25 of her more than 200 recordings, including "Let's Get Away From It All" and "Friendship", sold more than 50,000 copies.
