About The Group
The identical twin brothers got started singing at the age of six when they sang harmony at the Little Boy's Club every Saturday night in Little Rock, Arkansas. They were a duet team that specialized in harmony singing. The early influence on their musical career was their mother, who taught them to play and sing even before they could read and was also their booking agent.
Around 1947, the Armstrong Twins went to California and began appearing at Dave Ming's 97th Street Corral. They appeared on Cliffie Stone's Hometown Jamboree show. By 1953, they had made about 14 recordings with Four Star Records. Some of the songs included "THree Miles South Of Cash In Arkansas", "Alabama Baby", "Garden In The Sky", "Mandolin Boogie".
In early 1953, they were making appearances on radio and television. Every Friday and Saturday night they were at the Town Hall Ballroom in Compton, California with Eddie Kirk and his show.
