Description
The Hoppers

The HoppersWith humble beginnings as rural farm-boys, The Hoppers were organized in 1957 by founding member and owner Claude Hopper along with brothers; Will, Steve, Paul, and Monroe. The Hoppers memoir, After All These Years, tells the heartwarming story of how the group later came to be known as The Hopper Brothers and Connie. In the summer of 1958, Claude Hopper took a lunch break from his part-time job at the A & P Grocery store in Madison, NC, taking a walk to the corner. Connie Shelton was driving in the little downtown section of Madison and drove up to the light at the corner, saw Claude, and glanced over his way. "It was my big chance to ask her to play piano for us!" says Claude. Smiling from the corner, Claude motioned for Connie to roll her window down and hollered: "Hey, Connie! My brothers and I are singing together in a gospel quartet. Would you be interested in playing for us?" Connie answered, "I'll have to think about it." Then, the light turned green and she found herself blurting out: "Uh-oh-okay!"
