Artist: The Merry Macs featuring Marjory Garland
From high school proms to the hit parade…
You’re on the Sound Beat
You’re listening to the Merry Macs with Mairzy Doats, a Decca 78 from 1943. The group was made up of 3 brothers McMichael, and was formed with the lofty goal of…playing local high school dances.
The song would be the Merry Mac’s biggest hit, hitting number one in . It features Marjory Garland, the third in a line of female vocalists to sing with the group. She was a natural fit with the Macs…so much so that she became one after marrying band member Judd McMichael.
