     In 1963, American Bandstand, the popular Philadelphia-based TV dance show with Dick Clark, was still going strong, having been broadcast nationally since August 1957.  The show was still seen mid-afternoons five days a week on the ABC television network.  However, by 1963, Bandstand’s format had been shortened to 30 minutes per show.  Not long thereafter, it began broadcasting taped shows rather than live broadcasts.  Then, in September 1963, ABC moved Bandstand to  Saturdays-only for one hour.  But even with those changes, American Bandstand was still a place where many aspiring recording artists came for national exposure to help launch and/or advance their careers.

     During 1963, there were more than 200 guest appearances on American Bandstand, with a number of artists making their national television debuts.  Among some of the more notable performers appearing in 1963 with one or more hit songs were: Dionne Warwick, Paul & Paula, the Ronettes, the Righteous Brothers, Peter Paul & Mary, Franki Valli & The Four Seasons, The Chiffons, Dion, Bobby Rydell, Skeeter Davis, Nancy Sinatra, Lesley Gore, Frankie Avalon, Gene Pitney, Dee Dee Sharp, Jan & Dean, Neil Sedaka, Darlene Love, Bobby Vinton, Link Wray, and others.

     In January 1963, Dionne Warwick made what may have been her first national TV appearance on American Bandstand performing her hit song, “Don’t Make Me Over.”  Released in October 1962, Warwick’s song had broken through nationally after receiving heavy radio play in San Francisco.  It debuted on the Billboard chart December 8, 1962, rising to No.21 on that chart and to No. 5 on the R&B chart in January 1963.  Warwick would follow this hit with others, including, “Anyone Who Had a Heart,” released in December 1963 and “Walk On By” in April 1964, a major international hit and million seller.  Warwick went on to stardom and a long career of many hits, including those in collaboration with the writer/producer team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David during the 1962 -1971 period.  Warwick, in fact, would put 56 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart between 1962 and 1998, making her one of the that era’s leading female recording stars.

Frank Valli & The Four Seasons appeared twice on “American Bandstand” in 1963.

     The Four Seasons, a quartet of singers from New Jersey with front man Franki Valli and his famous falsetto voice, appeared on American Bandstand at least twice in 1963.  These “Jersey Boys” as they would come to be known years later from a famous stage production of that name, formed their group in 1960 as The Four Lovers.  They eventually became The Four Seasons, with Frankie Valli on lead, Bob Gaudio keyboards and tenor vocals, Tommy DeVito on lead guitar and baritone vocals, and Nick Massi on bass guitar and bass vocals.  By the time they appeared on American Bandstand in 1963, they were already stars, having released their first album in 1962 with the No. 1 hit single “Sherry,” followed by their second No. 1 hit, “Big Girls Don’t Cry” – both million-sellers.  The Four Season appeared twice on Bandstand in 1963 – once in February and once in March – performing “Walk Like a Man” on both occasions.  That song had been released in January 1963, but by March 2nd that year it had hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, remaining there for three weeks and in the Top 40 for 12 weeks.  The Four Seasons would go on to become one of the more popular musical groups of that era, and for years thereafter, selling some 175 million records worldwide.

Lesley Gore, shown at 1964 TAMI concert, appeared on Bandstand, May 1963, singing “It’s My Party.”

     In late May 1963, a 17 year-old New Jersey teenager named Lesley Gore (Lesley Sue Goldstein) made her first appearance on American Bandstand singing her soon-to-be No.1 hit, “It’s My Party.”  Just three months earlier, she was virtually unknown, performing locally at a Manhattan nightclub.  That’s when Quincy Jones, a producer with Mercury Records, had caught her performance.  By late February 1963, Jones came to Gore’s family home where she chose a demo song named “It’s My Party” to record for his label.  Six weeks later, the recording was finished and sent to record stores.

     But by June 1, 1963, after Gore made her national TV debut on Bandstand performing “It’s My Party,” the song shot to No. 1 on the pop charts, remaining there for two weeks.  Gore would also have big subsequent follow-up hits, including “Judy’s Turn To Cry” and “You Don’t Own Me.”  And years, later, she would also be nominated for an Oscar for co-writing the 1980 song, “Out Here On My Own” from the movie Fame.

     The Righteous Brothers appeared on Bandstand in June 1963, but this was before their major stardom, coming at a time when they worked with a small recording company and then using the Moonglow label. Under that label, they produced two moderate hits: “Little Latin Lupe Lu” and “My Babe.”  Their big hit – “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin,” produced with studio wizard Phil Spector – would not come until 1965.

     Among others appearing on Bandstand in June of 1963, were: Frankie Avalon, Chubby Checker, Bobby Vinton, and Nancy Sinatra.  James Brown also appeared that month performing his “Prisoner of Love,” as did Barbara Lewis with her hit, “Hello Stranger” and The Essex, with their hit,”Easier Said Than Done.”  The Essex were an interesting group for that time, composed as they were of five U.S. Marines: Walter Vickers, Rodney Taylor, Billy Hill, Rudolph Johnson, and female Marine, Anita Humes.  Stationed at Camp LeJeune in North Carolina, they cut a demo that landed them a contract with Roulette Records.  Their hit song, “Easier Said Than Done,” was written by William Linton and Larry Huff, recorded by the group in 20 minutes, and released in May 1963.  To the group’s surprise, it soared to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on July 6, sold more than one million copies, and garnered a gold disc from the recording industry.  In September1963, The Essex had another hit, “A Walkin’ Miracle,” which rose to No.12 on the pop charts.  The group appeared on American Bandstand June 7th, 1963.

Little Stevie Wonder appeared on Bandstand July 8, 1963.  Click photo for separate story.

     Stevie Wonder, a young blind teenager out of Detroit, made his network television debut on American Bandstand on July 8, 1963, with a performance of his harmonica-with-vocals song, “Fingertips, Part 2.”  Wonder would go on to become a very popular music artist for decades, winning many Grammy awards, and continuing his success into the 21st century.  Major Lance appeared on Bandstand in September 1963 with a popular dance song called “Monkey Time,” written by Curtis Mayfield, a song that had risen to No. 8 on the pop charts that August. 

     In the latter part of 1963, Dick Clark’s American Bandstand had a contingent of “girl group” recording artists on the show– i.e., groups that were girl-led, all-girl composed, or had a “girl group” sound.  Among these were the Jaynetts, the Chiffons, Darlene Love, Dee Dee Sharp, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, and the Ronettes.  Clark also gave local groups continued opportunity on his show such as The Dreamlovers, a Philadelphia doo-wop group that once backed Chubby Checker on “The Twist” and other songs.  This group appeared several times on Bandstand in 1963.

     Although American Bandstand was still an important force in the music industry of that day, its power wasn’t what it had been in the 1950s.  By September 1963, when the show went to its Saturday-only format, it wasn’t playing new recordings every day, which had been one of Bandstand’s big selling points in the music industry.  With its reduced air time and song plugging, the show lost some of its influence in the industry.  Still, through 1963 American Bandstand was the place where aspiring artists came to launch or enhance their music careers.  Bandstand would have many years remaining as a TV dance show, extending into the 1980s.

     The 1963 season, in any case, was the last year that American Bandstand would be broadcast from Philadelphia.  In early 1963, the live broadcasts were replaced by previously-taped shows, though still running five days a week.  In August, Bandstand ended its weekday broadcasts and instead, went to a Saturdays-only show for one hour, ending its years in Philadelphia with its final broadcasts in December 1963.  By February 1964, the show resumed broadcasting from Los Angeles, California, near Hollywood.  Clark by then had also been serving as a game show host, a part of his career that would grow in the years ahead.  At the time of Bandstand’s move west, Dick Clark was still a young man at age 34.

The Jaynetts appeared on Bandstand in 1963 with their song, "Sally, Go Round the Roses."

     The move to California and the show’s location near the growing music industry in the Los Angeles area, was beneficial in terms of Bandstand landing more musical guests.  And in terms of the youth culture at that time, California was becoming an important center of attention.  It was “where the action was,” as Clark would later explain.  “Everything was going on there.  The surfing craze was high on everybody’s list of things to do, whether you lived near water or not.  Everybody wanted to have bleached-blonde straight hair… So I figured I’d better get out [there].”

     Still, the 1963-1964 period became something of dividing line for Bandstand and the nation.  With the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, America fell into a period of mourning and national soul-searching.  And with the turn of the new year in 1964, the music began to change as well.  In February 1964, after the Beatles performed on The Ed Sullivan Show, “Beatlemania” swept the country.  Plain Vanilla rock ‘n roll was heading into some new territory, not the least of which would be drug and psychedelic influences.

     Although Clark and American Bandstand were then in California and would adapt with the changing times and fashion, after Bandstand left Philadelphia it would never again have quite the same dominance it enjoyed during the late 1950s and early 1960s.  As author John Jackson has put it in his American Bandstand book, 1964 became the year in which “Clark’s epic production began its steady diminution…to becoming…just another television show.”  Dick Clark, in any case, while continuing to host the Bandstand show for many years in California, was building his career in other areas, including game shows, television productions, and related entertainment businesses through his Dick Clark Productions, which he formed in 1957.

     What follows below is a listing of artists who appeared on American Bandstand in 1963 – the final Philadelphia year — along with a few Bandstand “top ten” lists from that year.  Artists appearing on Bandstand are listed by date, and in some cases, with the song each performed.  Other Bandstand-related stories at this website include, “At the Hop, 1957-1958,” “Bandstand Performers, 1957,” and “American Bandstand, 1956-2007,” the latter  providing  a general history of the show, Dick Clark, and his related businesses.  Thanks for visiting — and please consider supporting this website.  Thank you.
