There’s a little town in south Florida called Dania Beach. It’s tucked in between the Miami and Fort Lauderdale metropolises and other than today’s artists it was best known for its jai alai palace (now a casino) and a great old-time ice cream parlor called Jaxson’s.
All of that changed in 1970 when brothers Carter and Eddie Cornelius formed a singing group with their sister Rose. Another sister, Billie Jo, joined two years later. At one time there was another member of the group, a family friend named Cleveland Barrett, but he was killed in a car accident before the group had any success.
