After auditioning all of the College’s hopefuls, Daverne chose Susan Redfern, Sharon Swain, Barbara Brown, Louise Girvan and Barbara Stitchbury.
A short period of vocal coaching followed before he christened the group The Glendelles. He soon had them in the studio adding backing vocals to Cathy Howe’s debut single ‘Then He Kissed Me’/‘Mommy and Daddy Were Twisting’, released in October 1963.
The Glendelles own debut single ‘Sally Go Round the Roses’/‘Ring Ting A Ling’ was released a short time later. They backed Cathy Howe on her second single ‘I Adore Him’/‘Keep An Eye On Her’ at year’s end.
The Glendelles recorded two more singles for Viscount in 1964 – ‘Popsicles and Icicles’ in March, and ‘Please Please Daddy’/‘The Four Winds and the Seven Seas’ in June, before breaking up, leaving behind the three singles and about the same number of live performances at The Shiralee in downtown Auckland and Milford's Surfside ballroom.
Little is known of their whereabouts since.
