David Warren, of the Orioles R&B Group

This weekend I got to chat with David Warren, of the legendary Orioles.

The Orioles were a  R&B group of the early 1950s, one of the earliest doo-wop groups, who celebrated their 68th anniversary with us at Mr. Henry's.

The Orioles are generally acknowledged as R&B's first vocal group.

Coincidentally, David is also Roberta Flack's cousin, who recorded her first record in the upstairs jazz lounge at #MrHenrysDC
