    Biography :

    The Calendars were a doo wop group formed in Canarsie Brooklyn. Members were Cecil Davis, Leonard Puzey, Ollie Jones and C Hawes (Ollie Jones & Leonard Puzey were formerly in the Ravens). "I'm Gonna Laugh At You" was mastered in December of 1961 and released on January 1962. Unfortunately  this great tune was not promoted the proper way.

    Coed records was busy promoting other artists such. Adam Wade, The Duprees, The Crests, The Riveras etc. and basically by the early 1962 this song was ignored.  It is a shame that it didn't received the proper air play that it deserved. Some people think that George Paxton owner of Coed records had little bit of money at that time to promote this record.
