Dipsy & The Doodles (Providence, Ri.)
Everett "Grumpy" Mitchell
1963 - Duke Of Nothin' (Archibald # II) / Jolly Cholly (May 134)
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.
