The Fiestas -- Thanks For The Sweet Memories


The Fiestas, originally from Newark, NJ., had their first and biggest hit in 1959 with So Fine reaching number 3 on the R and B charts. They kept recording for the Old Town label until the 60's and scored another success with the title Broken Heart in 1962.  Broken Heart reached number 18 on the R and B charts. During the 60's they switched labels and signed first to Strand, NY and later to Vigor where they kept recording into the seventies without being successful again.
