They recorded several original songs including "The Choo Choo Train"," I can't Get Up", "The Wobble", "Onions Remind Me of You", "Fiesta in a Pizzaria", "Let It Be Me". They also played at "Palisades Amusement Park., New Jersey" in 1962 with Tony Orlando & Gene McDaniels.
After one of their records was released they played at record hops in Massachusettes on the same show with Curtis Lee "Angel Eyes" & Don & Juan "What's Your Name".
