The Fontane Sisters were a trio (Bea, Geri and Margi Rosse) from New Milford, New Jersey]. Originally they performed with their guitarist brother Frank, but he was killed in World War II. They were featured on a radio show done by Perry Como and Como's later television program.


In 1949 they were signed by RCA Records, and did some recordings as backup to Como. In 1951 they had a minor hit with "The Tennessee Waltz," of which bigger recordings were done by Patti Page and Les Paul and Mary Ford.
