The Jaggerz - 1969 - Introducing The Jaggerz

The Jaggerz are a pop/rock band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, often considered a one-hit wonder because their only major success was the single "The Rapper", written by Donnie Iris. Released on the Kama Sutra label in 1970, "The Rapper", released in late December 1969 got to #2 in the Billboard Hot 100 chart for two weeks in March 1970, and sold over one million copies with the gold record awarded by the R.I.A.A.. The band's name derives from the Pittsburgh English slang term, "jagger bush," meaning a thorny bush. They were managed by The Skyliners manager, Joe Rock. While attending college at Slippery Rock University, Donnie Iris started a band called the Trivells. The band became known as Donnie and the Donnelles when the line up increased from three members to four. Shortly after dropping out of college, Iris found out that a band called Gary and the Jewel Tones needed a new guitarist, where Jimmie Ross was a member. This gave birth to a new band called the "Jaggers." Forming around 1965, they began playing night clubs and the like for the next few years.In 1968, the Jaggers signed with Gamble Records, and they began to record their debut album. While in the early stages of recording the album, Jimmie Ross saw a magazine advertisement featuring another band called "The Jaggers." In order to avoid confusion, manager Joe Rock suggested that the "s" in "Jaggers" be changed to a "z." In 1969, their debut album, Introducing the Jaggerz, was released and was a moderate success.
