Quick facts about Cadets
The Cadets were an American doo wop group. The group began as a gospel group, the Santa Monica Soul Seekers, in the late 1940s. The members were Lloyd McCraw, Willie Davis, Austin “Ted” Taylor, Aaron Collins, Glendon Kingsby, and Will “Dub” Jones. In 1955, the group auditioned for Modern Records, and were accepted. The group decided to switch to the popular R&B style, with the exception of Kingsby, who left to continue in gospel music. Modern came up with the name “The Cadets”, and the group released their first single, “Don’t Be Angry”/”I cry”. Collins led the A side while Taylor led the flip side. The group followed with several more singles. One of them was slated to be a cover of The Feathers’ “Why Don’t You Write Me?”. Modern worried that this single may compete with “Don’t Be Angry”, so it was recorded on their subsidiary label, RPM Records, and was credited to “The Jacks”. Davis led “Why Don’t You Write Me?”, and the flip side, “Smack Dab In The Middle”, was led by Dub Jones. Many more singles followed, with the five recording as “The Cadets” on Modern, and “The Jacks” on RPM. McCraw left at the end of the year, and was replaced by Pete Fox. The group signed up to the Buck Ram management agency in March of 1956, and continued churning out singles. A few months later, Taylor left to pursue a solo career. Learn more about Cadets
