    Biography :



    In 1960, The Castaleers disbanded. Ron Henries, who had already split, continued on when he joined Dipsy and the Doodles for their only single “(Archibald II) The Duke of Nothing” b/w “Jolly Cholly” on Colpix subsidiary May Records in 1963. He enjoyed national with this Providence-based group, which included former 5 Dukes member Danny Jett, Everett "Grumpy" Mitchell & Ralph Johnson.

       

    This “answer record” to the Gene Chandler smash “The Duke Of Earl” brought national attention to Ron Henries’ new Rhode Island-based group. It remains a favorite on oldies stations around the world. Despite the group’s proximity to popular amusement park Jolly Cholly’s Funland in North Attleboro, Massachusetts, the record’s B-side was written by their New York producer and had nothing to do with the southern New England summer hot spot.
