I have had both the honor and the pleasure of performing with The New York
group of gentlemen professionally opened the show and put on a
performance which any group would envy. The New York Reflections are
from left to right above: Dennis Harrington, Al Innella, Joe Orlando,
Jerry Frulio, Bobby Z. and Al Tohn.
The New York Reflections
were originally formed in the Rosedale area in the Borough of Queens, New York
City That's me,
right smack dab in the middle, after the show, posing with the
Lenny Cocco & The Chimes. They are a super performing group
as well as a group of true gentlemen who I am very proud to know! Their
well-known hits-"Once in a
While"-"I'm in The Mood For Love" & many others! UPDATE 2008: Lenny Cocco and The Chimes, as pictured above,
have dissolved the group and no longer perform or have a website together.

Before the show, a picture with a legend, Nick Santo, lead vocalist of "The Capris"
Their "signature songs"-"There's a Moon Out Tonight" & "Morse Code of Love" The Capris have recorded many other hit songs!
A good friend, an absolutely great showman and a genuine gentleman, Larry Chance of "Larry Chance & The Earls"
Hits include-"Never"-"Remember Then"-"Life is But a Dream"-"I Believe"-"Eyes" and the list goes on and on!

Here I am with Bob Villano, talented performer of "The Fireflies." Their big "hits" were "You Were Mine" & "I Can't Say Goodbye" You definitely must hear their rendition of "The Duprees" song "Have You Heard." It will literally blow you away!

A picture with the one and only Cleveland Still (center) & The Dubs. Their big "hit" was "Could This Be Magic" (Always loved that song & their many other hits too!) The Dubs have been around for decades pleasing audiences with their performances!
Here I am with another good friend and a well-known legend in music. It's Vito Picone of Vito Picone & The Elegants. "The Elegants" blasted onto the record charts back in 1958 with the super hit "Little Star." Vito co-wrote the song and performed the lead vocal to it and it turned out to be a chart buster! Vito and the group are still going strong, and although many groups, which started back around the same time as they did, no longer sound anywhere even close to how they did back in the late 50's & early 60's, Vito Picone & The Elegants still sound every bit as good today as they did back then!
A dynamite performer is Barbara Harris of "Barbara Harris & The Toys." In 1965 they recorded, "A Lover's Concerto" and they were firmly planted in the "Top Ten." Barbara is still performing today and drawing audiences all over the country! Click on the picture above to visit Barbara's website!
Here I am with Timothy Wilson of Frankie Lymon's Teenagers. Timothy is the lead vocalist of the group, and he does a excellent job of belting out all of the familiar "Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers" hits!
It's me with Joe Terry of Danny & The Juniors. Their hits were "At The Hop," "Rock & Roll Is Here To Stay," as well as many others. Click on the above picture to visit the website of Danny & The Juniors!
"Hangin' out with the ever-popular Mickey B." at Radio Station WGBB for a LIVE "on-the-air" interview. Now, this page is actually my "good friends" groups page, and although Mickey is not a "group," per se, he is a very good friend and a well-known and popular radio and television personality whom I have personally known for over 30 years. Therefore, I can say without any reservation whatsoever that he truly is "The Prince of Rock & Roll."
