R.Rosie Rozell And The Searchers
Rosie Rozell And The Searchers (1963-1975)
The Soul Searchers hailed from Marietta, Georgia, beginning in 1963 on a part time basis. The group consisted of Glenn LeCroy, Mildred LeCroy, her sister Betty Hudson (later Betty Rozell), Pat Payton and John Payton. From 1963 through 1970, the group went by multiple names, which consisted of "The Soul Searchers, "The Searchers Quartet", and "The Searchers."
In early 1970's the Soul Searchers went full time and it was soon there after that Rosie Rozell joined the group after leaving the Statesmen Quartet. The group then changed their name to "Rosie Rozell and The Searchers." After Rosie Rozell joined the group Jack Toney, Woody Beatty, Gerald Williams, and Joel Duncan all sang with the Searchers. The Searchers disbanded in 1975 as Rosie Rozell had decided to return to the Statesmen Quartet.
