The Mamas & the Papas

Redirected from The Mamas and the Papas

The Mamas & the Papas were a leading vocal group of the 1960s, and one of the few American groups to maintain widespread success during the British Invasion, along with The Beach Boys.

John Phillips, Cass Elliott[?], Denny Doherty[?] and Michelle Phillips[?] formed the group after several folk groups failed. They hit it big immediately after forming the Mamas & the Papas with "California Dreamin'", still their most recognizable and enduring song. Romantic and drug-related problems soon tore the band apart, however, and the band had broken up by 1971.
