    Biography :

    Like the Danleers, The Webtones were named after their manager and songwriter Danny Webb. The group consisted of Louis Williams (Lead), Terry Wilson (Baritone), Frankie Clemens (Bass), Duke Ebron (Second Tenor) and Bruce Cooke (First Tenor). Their manager wrote the Danleers’s only hit and charting single, “One Summer Night,” which was also the group’s debut single in April 1958.

    By late fall, Danny Webb had placed The Webtones, with MGM for one quick unheralded release, "My Lost Love" b/w "Walk, Talk And Kiss". unfortunately, Despite the promising and beautiful "My Lost Love" the single never charted and this will be their only recordings as The Webtoones... After their last single on Mercury, The danleers broke up. Danny Webb put Lead singer' Jimmy Weston together with three members of the Webtones, to form a new Danleers group : Louis Williams, Terry Wilson and Frankie Clemens.

    Webb then proceeded to get the reorganized Danleers a contract with Columbia's Epic subsidiary. The New Danleers  recorded some singles on Epic, Everest Le Mans and Smash. With no hits since 1958, the Danleers were history by the mid-60s.
