Sam & Dave are the American music pioneers behind “Hold On, I’m Comin’,” and “Soul Man.”
From 1964-70 they ruled the Hot 100 with 13 straight appearances and two top 10 singles.
Sam & Dave were on the talent show circuit and came to be known for turning the party out every time they hit the stage.
Henry Stone took Jerry Wexler and Ahmet Ertegun of Atlantic Records to see them at King Of Hearts and they were blown away. Soon Sam and Dave signed a recording contract with Atlantic.
