Vocal quintet from Wallingford Connecticut fronted by Kenneth "Kenny" Marhevka with Peter "Pete" Gerosa, Donald "Dino" J. Nitz, Richard Allen "Dick" Barbieri and Lin Ken. They all went to Lyman Hall High School. In 1959, they signing a recording contract with Elgin record, a subsidiary of Drum Owned by Clarence Drum. The Silvertones cut "My Only Love" b/w "Hey Good Looking". Bod Distasio, an original Silvertones member and also a Lyman Hall graduate sang on the single.
The enterprising Clarence Drum formed the aforementioned Drum and Elgin labels in 1958, signing several artists, including The Chestnuts and singer Bill Baker, who eventually joined the former group, switching his allegiance from bread to nuts, so to speak. Drum made some money when several of his releases were licensed to other labels, but not enough to keep the companies afloat past 1961.
