The Andrews Sisters were good, but not as good as the bozees: bounce

The Brown sisters were definitely inspired by the Bozees:

Mamie Smith was the original inspiration:




She inspired Connee Boswell and her sisters down in New orleans:






…and Connee inspired  Ella Fitzgerald to audition at the Cotton Club (Ella was only 15 when she tried out on the reality show there):




… and then Ella logan copied Ella Fitzgerald.  She was from Glasgow, and her real name was totally not Ella:




As for the groups, the Boswell sisters--inspired by race records, became the inspiration for just about every white sister act from then on.

The Ross Sisters were a big hit in England, although the vocals were not their forte:
