“I’m Blue [The Gong Gong Song ] The Ikettes “

25 Apr


The Ikettes

were a trio (sometimes quartet) of female backing vocalists for the Ike & Tina Turner Revue. Despite their origins, the Ikettes became successful artists in their own right, with hits in the early- and mid-1960s. Mostly unheralded, they were arguably one of the ten top R&B female groups of all time.

The group’s origins began with the Artettes, the backing group of Art Lassiter. The first official incarnation of The Ikettes was comprised of Robbie Montgomery, Venetta Fields, and Jessie Smith; Ike never paid them much, which caused their lineup to change frequently, and they never received royalties.[citation needed] The original trio of Ikettes later morphed into the Mirettes.
