    Biography :

    Lead Singer Louis "Donnie" Burgio, Peter "Pete Alonzo" Vecchiarelli, Andy Catalano, and Frank Furstaci came from the Bronx, that fertile field for Street Corner doo whoppers.
    Donnie & The Dreamers had a talent for adding that doo wop touch to pop standards and they proved it in early 1961 with their hit version of the 1950 oldie "Cont Every Star".


    While this was hot (it spent 10 weeks on the chart) the Whale label followed it up by sending out deejay samples of "Life Is But A Dream", calling the Group Kenny & the Whalers. It went nowhere.
