The Archies

The Archies are a group of adolescent fictional characters of the Archie universe, a garage band founded by Archie Andrews, Reggie Mantle, and Jughead Jones.

Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge later also joined the group.

The Archies play a variety of contemporary popular music, consistent with the era in which the comic is drawn. They seem to have a preference to Rock and roll however.

The most famous is "Sugar, Sugar" which went to #1 on the pop chart . Most of the male lead vocals were sung by Ron Dante and the female by Toni Wine .
