    Biography :

    The Reflections all came from the same Rosedale, Queens neighborhood. As in many neighborhoods at the time, singing groups were formed, dissolved and reformed with singers moving about to find the right combination of sound and dedication. Alfred, Jerry, Joey, Dennis and Bob had all been members of other groups and they came together to form the The Reflections.


    Echo, electricity, heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer - Rosedale Station was the perfect place to sing. This was the place The Reflections practiced on a regular basis. Practice paid off - with releases on Crossroads Records. They released two 45rpms - 'Maybe Tomorrow' b/w 'I Really Must Know' and 'Because of You' b/w 'Rocket to the Moon' The records received some air play and the group made personal appearances, catching the attention of a New York disc jockey who wanted to promote the group Reflections. Management and the disc jockey could not come to terms and so the group became disenchanted and broke up a short time later.
