The internationally famous vocal singing group, The Vogues® are here.
They bring us "that sound" which is the harmony, the energy,
the musical experience...the original four.
Our intention is to dedicate this site to the members of the
original Vogues® group. This not-for-profit site will
document and celebrate their past, present, and future... including the
reunion of all 4 members on stage at the Vocal Group Hall of Fame
induction concert. Welcome to the first and original website
dedicated to the original group that we all know and love.
The history of the Vogues® is complicated. But to make it simple,
here is what is going on today:
It is not our intention to get involved with discussions on trademark
ownership or to direct business to either performer. The use of the
trademark name on this site is strictly for reference purposes only and
it is to be noted that the aforementioned name is a registered trademark

celebrate the original performances and offer neutral information
