a brief history

Bunny Sigler was born in Philadelphia in 1941. By the time he met John Madara and Dave White in 1965, he had had minimal success with several small labels with his songs, “Come on Home” and “Promise Me.” John and Dave took Bunny into the studio, but it would take two years before their efforts would put him on the charts. John came up with the idea to rework some old Shirley and Lee standards, “Let The Good Times Roll” and “Feel So Good.” Both songs became hits, and “Let The Good Times Roll” was a huge success, reaching 22 on the national charts in June of 1967. Several other songs hit the charts, reworks of The Falcons “You’re So Fine” and Clyde McPhatter’s “Lovey Dovey.”

 

John's memories

Bunny Sigler was probably one of the best male singers I have ever worked with. Most of his vocals that he performed were done in one take.

Bunny and I used to hang out a lot with each other. We hung together outside the Shubert Building, where my office was, with other residents Leon Huff, Thom Bell and Linda Creed.  Bunny had a great sense of humor.  I remember he used to tease me about him being half Italian.  We laughed a lot together. 

 

what happened next?

Bunny Sigler would also find success as a prolific songwriter, working with artists such as Billy Paul, Patti Labelle, Shirley Jones, Lou Rawls, Harold Melvin and The Blue Notes and many others. He also recorded several solo albums for Philadelphia International Records. He has recently appeared on stage with Patti Labelle, another Philadelphian.
