The Vowelles are vocalists who perform with Johnny Consonanti and Martha Reader. They often accompany Reader in Motown-style harmonies as part of a group, Martha Reader and the Vowelles (playing on the Motown group Martha Reeves and the Vandellas).

Martha Reader and the Vowelles usually perform the vowel sound out of the middle of a monosyllabic word, singing it to a tune similar to Martha and the Vandellas' 1963 hit "Heatwave," accompanied by saxophone. In Season 1, they performed short words with Johnny Consonanti singing the consonants and them the vowels.
