    Biography :

    In 1961, The Five Discs with their new lead singer John Carbone and new bass Charlie DiBella cut two singles for Calo & Cheer records. ‘Never Let You Go’ was the last single to feature Carbone, as Eddie Parducci of the Delvons took his place. Trying for a change of luck, the group became the Boyfriends, releasing a solitary single on Kapp Records titled "Let’s Fall In Love" b/w "Oh Lana"".

    By 1965, DiBella, Albano, and Basile had seen enough; with replacements the group became Parducci (lead), Donnie LaRuffa (first tenor), Frank Arnone (second tenor), and the ever-present Barsalona (baritone). In 1968 (two years before Tony Orlando gave up publishing for stardom as Tony Orlando and Dawn) the Five Discs/Boyfriends became Dawn on Rust for a remake of Sam Cooke's "Bring It on Home to Me.
