The Ikettes were a trio (sometimes quartet) of female backing vocalists for the Ike & Tina Turner Revue, a prominent American rhythm and blues group from the 1960s.
Ike Turner formed the Mirrettes to replace the Artettes as the backing group for the Ike & Tina Turner Revue. The Ikettes began recording in 1960, when lead Delores Johnson, Eloise Hester, and Joshie Armstead accompanied Tina Turner on her first recording, "A Fool in Love". They cut "I'm Blue (The Gong-Gong Song)" the following year. Ike produced the record and leased it to Atco Records, who issued three less successful Ikettes singles in 1962. The following year, Ike switched them to his Teena record label for two singles: "Crazy in Love" (credited as Robbie Montgomery & the Ikettes) and "Prisoner in Love". "Here's Your Heart" came out on Innis in 1964 but failed to go national; nor did a Phi-Dan single in 1965.
Despite their beginnings, the Ikettes became successful artists in their own right. They had hits in the early and mid 1960s, charting with "I'm Blue (The Gong-Gong Song)" in 1961, "Camel Walk" in 1964, and "Peaches and Cream" and "I'm So Thankful" in 1965. Unheralded, they were arguably one of the ten top R&B female groups of all time. Ike never paid them much, which caused their lineup to change frequently, and they never received royalties. Former Ikettes Clydie King and Venetta Fields had a spectacular career after leaving Ike & Tina - Joining Ray Charles as the Raelettes, the UK rockers Humble Pie (post Peter Frampton) as two thirds of the Blackberries as well as a brief stint with Delaney and Bonnie.
