    Biography :

    When the Sputniks (1) decided to call it quits, Curtis Stanton, then took up with The El Domingoes of “Evening bells” fame on the Kappa Rex label. This was a short while after they had recorded and work was still plentiful. The El Domingoes line-up at this juncture was Jay Vernon, lead, guitar and songwriter (Vernon wrote “I’m not kidding you,” the Kappa Rex B-side), Robert Troutt, baritone, Lawrence Thompson, lead, first and second tenor, Curtis Stanton, lead and tenor, plus a bass singer, a country boy remembered only as “Turk.” The El Domingoes played all over the Bay Area, including The 54 Club. In 1962, Curtis Stanton quit The El Domingoes and joined a jazzy trio with Artis Johnson and his old buddy, Robert Beale. This unnamed combo sang jazz standards and was able to find sufficient employment.
