The Ivy Three
The group was formed by three undergraduates at Adelphi University in 1959. They signed to Shell Records; their first single, "Yogi", was written by Shell founders Lou Stallman and Sid Jacobson along with member Charles Koppelman. The song became a hit in America, peaking at #22 on the Black Singles chart and #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1960. It was the group's only hit, and they disbanded by 1961. Koppelman and Rubin later became successful managers in the music industry.
