    Biography :

    Formed on a Port Chester street corner in 1956, the group was made up of a bunch of kids messing around. They are John Passarelli, Fritz Falanka, John Belfato, Louis Passarelli and Bill Verrastro. The Don-A-Tones were born, named after their manager’s (Don Catalano) baby girl, Donna.

    The Don-A-Tones

    One day, a passer by suggested that they try their luck at a local talent show. So they did and they won. Three years later, they were working out a deal for a high-paying record contract with RCA-Victor Records. But the music industry was really screwed up back then. There was a lot of payola going on with DJs and they didn’t really have the sources to get her records played.
