Herman Sang - Jamaica Way Reggae Podcast
Herman’s brother – Claude Sang Jr., formed a singing duo with Derrick Harriott, called The Jiving Juniors. Claude was a schoolmate of Derrick Harriott at Excelsior College in Jamaica and after the two entered and won the Vere John’s Talent Show at The Palace Theatre in 1957. Claude and Harriott enlisted Herman to play piano on all of their shows and eventually their recordings. Herman Sang comments, “I was still going to school at Kingston College and we would play in Kingston and also outside the area. ‘Claude and Harriott’ composed a song called ‘Lollipop Girl.’ That was a big hit! We went on to be very popular covering songs by The Coasters group. We had big shows where we opened for Lloyd Price, Fats Domino, and James Brown.”
