Five airmen who came together at the NCO Service Club in Pittsburgh, the Dell-Vikings underwent several lineup changes because members kept getting sent to Germany. Eventually they became pop's first successful multiracial group on the strength of "Come Go With Me." The song was written by the group's bass singer and recorded one night in a Pittsburgh hotel room.
