    Biography :

    Since there were other Playboys groups at the time (one on Rainbow and another on Tetra), Federal asked them to use a different name and James Gibson suggested the "Ramblers" (after the car). "The Heaven And Earth"/"Don't You Know" were released in December 1956.


    The Falcons (5)/Fabulous Playboys with Hollowell

    Probably during the summer of 1957, Frank Holt was replaced by second tenor/baritone Alton "Bart" Hollowell, who had been in the Enchanters on Coral. They later became The Falcons (5)

       

    The group, fronted by Carl 'Sonny' Monroe would later become The Fabulous Playboys and from there evolve into The Falcons after the original group of the same name had disbanded.
