In 1964, the band played at the Bowl, a Sydney nightclub, doing covers of popular songs such as "Shakin All Over". The group performed regularly in front of thousands of excitable teenagers who danced wildly to the sounds and energy pro-vided by these new pop heroes.

Over a frantic period of two years, Brown and the Whispers issued four excellent albums, seven hits singles and eight EPs..
