    Biography :

    Group first got together in 1956 doing record hops and other local events. Pittsburgh disk jockey Jay Michael liked them and called on them frequently to appear at dances and other shows he was doing. He hooked them up with Dickie Goodman's Eldorado Records, where they recorded several masters. Bot the group felt that they have performed poorly on the masters and decided not to sign any contract with Goodman oe Eldorado.

    Munhall brought the group's demo tape to New York and landed a contract with ABC Paramount Records. At their session, they did two ballads and three up-tempo tunes. In January 1958 their ABC Paramount disc was released. Their second was released in August 1958. They made many appearances for Jay Michael at record hops. Because he liked them so much, he was trying to live the rest of their lives. They did not sit well with them and early in 1959 they chose to split up.
