The Fiestas were an American R&B group from Newark, New Jersey.

Formed in 1958, The Fiestas signed to Old Town Records in 1959 after the label’s owner, Hy Weiss, overheard the group singing in a bathroom adjacent to his office in Harlem. Their debut single was 1959’s “So Fine”; the tune was a hit in the U.S., hitting #3 on the Black Singles chart and #11 on the Billboard Hot 100.

A series of soul singles followed from the group, among them “Last Night I Dreamed”, “You Could Be My Girlfriend”, “Anna”, and “Think Smart”, but only 1962’s “Broken Heart” managed to chart, hitting #18 on the Black Singles chart.

Leaving Old Town, the group later recorded for Strand and Vigor, releasing music into the mid-1970s.
