    Biography :

    After the Lamplighters/tenderfoots, Frazier, Carl White and Sonny Harris were joined by Turner "Rocky" Wilson Jr. to form the Four After Fives. The Name came from the "After Five" uniforms they wore on stage. There was only one release by this group. Frazier does not recall the release "Lonesome" by the Ebbtides, but claims that they did that song as the Four After Fives.

    A name change to the Sharps preceded the groups' successful reunion with Thurston Harris. Lester Sills of Screen Gems chose the new name. The Same four Vocalists changed their name to the Crenshaws and their releases for Warner Brothers saw the brief return of Matthew Nelson on "Off Shore" and "Moonlight in Vermont". The next and final name change proved to be a Lucky one. Producers Adam Ross and Jack Levy named the group The Rivingtons after a street on the lower east side of New York.
