In the 1968 & 1969, The 1910 Fruitgum Company topped the charts with 1-2-3 Red Light, May I Take A Giant Step, Goody Goody Gumdrops, Indian Giver and their signature song, Simple Simon Says.
As the story goes, the group was named by guitarist Frank Jeckell, after finding an old gum wrapper while going through a trunk in his attic. The group came from New Jersey and were the forerunners of the so-called Bubblegum Craze. The group has traveled and performed with top acts throughout the country, and at one time, toured with the Beach Boys.
Their hit recordings were nursery rhymes put to a rock and roll beat, which started a craze enjoyed throughtout America and the United Kingdom. Today, along with original members, Frank Jeckell and Floyd Marcus, the group consists of musicians and vocalists dedicated to ensure a great performance for their audience. The group not only performs hits from The 1910 Fruitgum Company, but performs some of the best songs of the sixties. The 1910 Fruitgum Company reappeared in the '90s as Al Bundy's favorite group in the Fox TV series, "Married With Children."
