Oldies But Goldies My Music

The Archies

The Archies were an American fictional garage band founded by Archie Andrews, Reggie Mantle, Jughead Jones, Veronica Lodge, and Betty Cooper, a group of adolescent characters of the Archie universe, in the context of the animated TV series, The Archie Show. The group is also known for their real world success, through a virtual band.

The fictional band’s music was recorded by session musicians, featuring Ron Dante on lead vocals and Toni Wine on duet and backing vocals, and released as a series of singles and albums. Their most successful song, “Sugar, Sugar”, became one of the biggest hits of the bubblegum pop genre that flourished from 1968 to 1972.
