The Lana Sisters

Riss Chantelle formed The Lana Sisters in 1958, along with Lynne Abrams. They put an advert in The Stage for a third member and got a reply from Mary O'Brien, who would go on to massive solo success a few years later as Dusty Springfield. After Riss left the Lana Sisters she became the Chantelles with two friends.

They were managed by Evelyn Taylor, as they toured around England. They appeared on the BBC's Drumbeat with Adam Faith and John Barry, and later took part in a Christmas special "Tommy Steeleā€™s Spectacular" with the song "Seven Little Girls Sitting in the Back Seat".

They appeared twice at the Royal Albert Hall and toured with Cliff Richard, Adam Faith, and Morecambe & Wise. The song "You've Got What it Takes" became a Top 10 hit in Ireland in 1960.
