    Biography :

    In 1962-63 the Montells, students at Roosevelt Junior-High School in Long Island, N.Y., were founded. The group consisted of Mary Parsons, Sheron Regular and Antoinette Robinson, and sang in church and school choirs, also at glee clubs. Soon Antoinette left to be replaced by Edythe Flemings and Mary’s sister Charlotte.


    The Montells performed at dances and sock hops as well as other school functions and events around Long Island. Their main influences were the Shirelles and the Chantels.

    One day Sheron was scanning the newspapers and came across an advertisement for “black female singers.” After calling the number, they were soon in touch with Charles Podell and Golden Crest Records of Huntington Station, N.Y. Thus the Montells were on the map for two singles.
