Jack Toney (1933 - April 15, 2004)
Jack Toney began his long career singing with a group called John Hull and the Joymakers. In 1962, he joined the Prophets to sing lead between Ed Hill's baritone and Big Lew Garrison's tenor vocals. The following year, he joined the Dixie Echoes, but his tenure there was also short-lived. When Hovie Lister came calling later in 1963, Toney joined the Statesmen, replacing Jake Hess who had left to form his own group, the Imperials. Toney sang with the Statesmen until 1966 when he was replaced by Roy McNeal. A year later, Toney was back with the Statesmen until 1968.
