Entertainers, Inducted 2019, Pioneer
Biography
Ronnie and Robert Crump – forever remembered as they were billed on posters, marquees and playbills as “The Crump Twins”, were two of the most recognizable entertainers in Vancouver from the late 1940’s to the early 1960’s. They notably performed on the same stage alongside Sammy Davis Jr. and Louis Armstrong. As a duo act, singing, tap dancing, telling jokes and playing guitar and drums, they regularly were featured at a host of downtown nightclubs and theatres during their years of performing. They are perhaps the most prominent entertainers to be mentioned in association with the lost east end neighbourhood of Hogan’s Alley. Rock and roll guitarist, Jimi Hendrix from the same neighbourhood was once a Crump Twins sideman. Robert passed away in March of 2019 leaving behind his twin brother Ronnie. The Crump Twins remain two of the great pioneers in the early years of the Vancouver entertainment scene and the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame is proud to have them inducted into the Hall....
