    The Tren-Teens are from Trenton, NJ and were composed by four Girls (Clara Woodard, Mary Ann Camp, Barbara Ingram and Sandra Mingoand) and one Boy (Carlton Sumners). Joe Evans co-arranged the two numbers on them. The A-side was a cute answer to Lee Dorsey's R&B success "Ya Ya", called "Your Yah-Yah Is Gone". In 1964, the group recorded "No Other Guy" b / w "Johnny Run Run". The single will be released by Jeff Records from New Jersey and the Tren-Teens will be renamed The Dew Drops. Cindy Birdsong sang with them for a time, then left to join Patti LaBelle and then onto the Supremes
