    Biography :

    Tom DeSantis was born and raised on Doowop in Queens, N.Y.  Tommy started singing in the subways and hallways in 1958 with a group of local kids called The Velveteens composed by  Tommy DeSantis (Baritone), John Colwell (First Tenor), Ray Sharpe (Lead) and Jerry Garramone (Second Tenor). In late 1959 Tommy left the group to start a new group called The Enchantments recording for Variety, and Liberty records in the early 60's. Unfortunately, impossible to find these singles, maybe that they have never been released. After a short breakup of the original Enchantments they reformed in 1970.  The group performed, and toured throughout the 1970's until Tommy moved to S.W. Fla in 1979.
