PITTSBURGH COURIER - January 17, 1948
The Caldwells are rated by the Note Book as the most sensational new act to hit Broadway in years. Voice and instrumental, the group has been working in Philadelphia since coming East from East St. Louis, Ill. Each member plays bass fiddle and guitar and has a distinctive style of singing the blues. Most of their numbers are originals and composed by Alex Caldwell, in the background. Others are, seated, Helen Stewart, John Dennis, and Aleatha Granger [sic Oleatha Granger].
(NOTE: East St. Louis is located in Illinois, across the Mississippi River from St. Louis, Missouri.)
