    The Tremaines were a vocal group from  Gates Ave, Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn  with Toney Hughes on lead and Julius Williams on Bass. The group recorded "Jingle Jingle" and "Moon Shining Bright" for Cash records. VAL Records bought the rights to Cash which produced the single.

    In 1958, Old Town Records released the master purchased from Val Records "Jingle Jingle" and "Moon Shining Bright" under their name. But for some reason they reissued it in June, with the Tremaines renamed the "Packards." This has led many over the years to believe that there's a link between the "Ding Dong" Packards and the "Jingle Jingle" Tremaines. There isn't. The group will record nothing more and Julius Williams will join the Camelots in 1963.
