The Fascinations (1) (Akron, Ohio)
Jordan Zankoff (Lead)
1960 - It's Midnight / Doom Bada Doom (Sure 106)
In the late 1950s, Jordan Zankoff and pals Gene Blackford, Phil DiMascio and Darrel McDonald formed a doo-wop group called the Fascinations. The boys performed at sock hops and appeared on WEWS-TV's One O'Clock Club. In 1960, the Fascinations cut a 45 RPM record for the Sure label in Philadelphia.

The featured song was It's Midnight, a romantic serenade with soaring vocals, while the calypso-tinged Doom Bada Doom was the flip side. Although it wasn't a hit, Zankoff had found his niche. Things happened quickly after that.
Zankoff married an Akron woman, Mary, in 1961 and welcomed a daughter, Jodi, a year later, but the marriage ended in divorce in 1964. The singer changed his name to Jordan Christopher, eliminated his mustache and moved to New York. With a new lineup and new name, Jordan & the Fascinations recorded songs for Carol, Dapt, Crystal Ball and Josie labels.
