    Biography :

    The Escorts were a Long Island group, West Bablyon and North Babylon. The Escorts are Phil Giarratano, Dennis DeVita , Doug Scanell, Danny , and Dave Kelley did bass. The Group cut one single for Brooklyn's Taurus Records, a label perhaps best known for its belated and ultimately disappointing Fireflies' LP.

        The Escorts (8)
    Be that as it may, label owner Michael Sebianiano, who focused much of his energy on putting out the white vocal group sound that was enjoying success in the early 60's, did issue quite a bit of solid material. A few years later, in 1967, Phil Tano joined the Valrays, Rod McBrien, John Giametta and a new member, Meco Menardo for a single.

    Band Member Names
    Two of the members of this band are my uncles. Their names are not spelled correctly. The correct spellings are Dennis DeVita and Danny DeVita. It was great to hear the songs again. I used to listen to them as they practiced in my uncle Danny's garage.
