    The Collins Kids were a juvenile rockabilly duo, featuring sister Lawrencine "Lorrie" Collins (born May 7, 1942, in Tahlequah, Oklahoma) and younger brother Lawrence "Larry" Collins (born October 4, 1944, in Tulsa, Oklahoma). Their hits, such as "Hop, Skip and Jump", "Beetle Bug Bop" and "Hoy Hoy", were geared towards kids, but their infectious singing and playing crossed over generations. Larry, a lightning-fingered guitar whiz at the age of 10, was known for playing a double-neck Mosrite guitar like his mentor, Joe Maphis. They were regular performers on Tex Ritter's "Town Hall Party" and "Ranch Party" television series in 1958 and 1959.
    Lorrie Collins is notable as one of the first female rock and roll singers, as she and her brother performed versions of songs such as "Shake, Rattle and Roll," "High School Confidential" and "Chantilly Lace", as well as "Hoy Hoy" and other early rockabilly numbers. Many of their performances on "Town Hall Party" survive and have been released on DVD by Bear Family Records
