    Biography :

    Poplar, founded in New York City in 1962 by Stan Seifer, generally featured doo wop-styled groups, but backed them with often surprisingly sharp early rock arrangements that avoided being derivative by adding in little percussion touches, unusual basslines, and touches of horns. Poplar Recorded the Enchantones in 1962.

    The group was made up of five members: Joe Bello, as lead singer, Danny Laboy, first tenor, Joe Rivera, second tenor, Roger,  baritone and Woody, bass.  They lived in what was then a rough neighborhood called Brownsville, Brooklyn.  They started singing on street corners, hallways (for echo effect) and school yards, before recording and playing venues visited by the likes of Johnny Mathis and Lou Christie.
