    Biography :

    By the 1950’s Asbury Park’s schools were integrated and white teenagers were getting into black music, especially doo wop.  One such group, the Darchaes traces its origins back to the Siciliano home on the 1400 block of Asbury Avenue. Sam  Siciliano sang with the Darchaes and Patsy Siciliano had his own group, Patsy & the Prells . The Prells were  Frank Campanelli, John Petillo and Antony Orifici. Later, Anthony Castellucia replaced Pat Siciliano. They have a lot of personnel changes during their career
