The Duprees are known the world over for their romantic interpretations of some of the most beautiful love songs ever written. They have made a career out of giving new life to old hits. If you take the Glenn Miller arrangements of the 1940's along with the tunes of Joni James, Frank Sinatra, Jo Stafford, Nat King Cole, (just to name a few) and put them together, you have the sound of The Duprees.

Starting out in the early sixties, in Jersey City, New Jersey, The Duprees were formed by Mike Arnone. They were discovered by George Paxton, the president of Coed Records and former big band leader from the 1940's. Impressed with The Duprees' smooth vocal quality, he had them record Jo Stafford's 1950's ballad "You Belong To Me" with Big Band arrangements. It was an instant national hit and the group's first Million Seller. The unmistakable sound was born and the hits kept rolling:
1962 You Belong To Me · 1962 My Own True Love · 1963 Gone With The Wind · 1963 Take Me As I Am · 1963 Why Don't You Believe Me · 1963 Have You Heard · 1963 Love Eyes · 1963 It's No Sin · 1963 The Sand And The Sea · 1964 Where Are You · 1964 It Isn't Fair · 1965 I'm Yours · 1966 Let Them Talk · 1966 Exodus · 1967 I Understand · 1969 Two Different Worlds
In 1987 the group celebrated their 25th year in the recording business with a Silver Anniversary Album containing 25 of the most requested songs (one for each year).
In 1994, at the request of their die-hard fans, The Duprees released a long-awaited Christmas album titled "A Duprees Christmas" featuring some of the greatest Christmas songs ever recorded.
The Duprees celebrated 35 years in show business in 1997. Their journey continues with their latest album release titled "Till The End Of Time". This new CD is a collection of songs with new and exciting arrangements of old standards combined with some original selections.
With their unique sound and outstanding vocal harmonies, The Duprees are still entertaining audiences in major venues throughout the world; appearing with some of the biggest names in show business. Although there have been changes over the years, the group is still intact and still performing to standing ovations at each performance
