    Biography :

    After a first group called the Embers, John & Sandy Anzalone form a group, The Galaxies In 1960. The group consisted  of John & Sandy, Arlene Pisciotta, John Gilleeny and John Sescila. The group was working the Platter's "Winner Take All" and another version of "You Belong To me"…

    The Embers                                                         The Galaxies

    Some personal changes again were made with Arlene & John Gilleeny departing and Ralph Rega joining the group. This group would record "Winner Take All", "A Thousand Miles Away" and a few other demo's before Ralph would exit to join "The Invitations".

    The Galaxies                                                                      The Invitations

    Ralph was replaced by Vinny Lombardi and a name change to the Allures took place. It was this group between 1961-1963 that would do many recordings, mostly because of their new Manager, Sal Campo. "Winner Take All" b/w "Tell Me Why", a cover of the Norman Fox hit was released in late '79 on the Crystal Ball label as the Allumes (This was because the Writing on the Demo was so faded it was illegible).

                                                                                            The Vibra-Tones/Allures

    The Group would wax two 45's backup singers. the first on ABC For Evelyn Del as The Vibra-Tones and the second on Xavier records for Piano player, Art Wayne. "Try & Try Again" was originally called "We don't Need A Chaperone" but after a revamping of the Lyrics by the producer on the lead vocals, the background vocals were lowered since the words no longer reflected the background singers response. After the lack of success by the Allures, the Group disbanded.
