The original CLUSTERS were formed in 1957. The group consisted of Charlie Scardina (lead), Tommy Mordente (first tenor), Donnie Milo (second tenor), Henrey (Rico) Ferro (baritone) and Joe Gugliotta (bass). All members were between 15 & 17 yrs. old out of Brooklyn, New York.

In April of 1958, the CLUSTERS recorded "Darling Can't You Tell" and "Pardon My Heart". The record was released on the Tee Gee record label and became a New York hit. It also reached #10 on the Billboard charts. The group appeared on the Alan Freed Big Beat TV show and Ted Steeles show at the Paramount Theater with Frankie Avalon, Bobby Darin, The Big Bopper, Clyde McPhatter and others. The Clusters reformed again in the 90's with new members and cut a CD called The Clusters 2000. The group then broke up and bass singer Joe Gugliotta joined the acappella group Second Time Around.

In January of 2003, the members of Second Time Around decided to reform the CLUSTERS with original Clusters bass, Joe Gugliotta. The "new" CLUSTERS are, Paulie Gee (lead), Joe Morelli (first tenor), Jerry DelGiorno (second tenor), George Granorola (baritone), and Joe Gugliotta (bass).

The CLUSTERS are available for private parties, corporate function, fundrasiers and other events where quality entertainment is desired.

The JOHNNY MAESTRO & THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE story spans virtually the entire rock era. It begins with the Crests in the latter half of the 50's and continues today.

Johnny Maestro began his career singing with The Crests. Their first records ("My Juanita" and "Sweetest One") generated some regional response but "Sixteen Candles" brought them national recognition. Even though a string of hits followed, the group disbanded in 1962. Johnny began working with the Del-Satins, a local New York City vocal group. The Del-Satins had several releases ("Teardrops Follow Me" - a local hit) and had done studio work with several artists and were most notably the background vocalists on all of Dion's solo efforts. While working the local club scene, Johnny & the Del-Satins met the Rhythm Method - a 7 piece band - and they all decided to merge, thus creating the Brooklyn Bridge.

The Brooklyn Bridge received a gold record for "The Worst That Could Happen" and performed on countless television and concert venues. Other hits followed "Welcome Me Love", "Blessed Is The Rain", "Your Husband, My Wife", "You'll Never Walk Alone". By 1972, the Brooklyn Bridge had sold over ten million records and established Johnny Maestro as one of the premier vocal talents of his era.

During the 70's, the group went thru both musical and personnel changes - current members are listed above next to photo. The group continues to perform at many major venues and television appearances. The success story of Johnny Maestro & the Brooklyn Bridge has continued throughout the years and will continue to do so.

Like most Doo Wop Acappella groups, 5-3 WOODLAND got started on the street corner. Not just any corner -
the particular corner was 53rd & Woodland Avenue in Philadelphia. Actually, there were two groups -
the 'Old Heads' and the 'Young Boys' - teaching each other and learning from one another. During the 70's and 80's, they saw each other at parties and would sing together to everyone's enjoyment.

In 1993, they got together at the urging of Gene Volpe, an original 'Young Boy', to sing on stage at the Lansdowne Folk Club which had recently been established by a friend, Lee Jones. (By the way, it was Lee who named the group; something for which the group will never forgive him for!) The group has been together since then and has performed in the Philadelphia and South Jersey area.

5-3 WOODLAND has opened for the Tokens, Skyliners, Dovells and Lee Andrews among others. It Ain't Easy is the groups premier CD.

Vernon Britton

Fred Williams

Around 1950, in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, NY, Vernon Britton, Sam Fickling, Fred Williams and Jerry Halfhide - influenced by the Orioles - formed a group called the Tune Toppers. They obtained a recording contract with Jubilee Records and due to conflicting names, became the Toppers.

At Jubilee, they recorded 'Baby Let Me Bang Your Box' b/w 'You're Laughing 'Cause I'm Crying'. Competition was fierce and the release was not a big seller. Soon after the group reorganized and consisted of Henry Austin, James Brown, Fred Williams, Vernon Britton and Gabriel Gill. They went on to record for King Records, but King Records didn't like the name Toppers and so they became the Hurricanes. In addition to recording as the Hurricanes, they also did back-up sessions - most notably for Jerry Dorn - for which they did not receive any credit. The Hurricanes had eight records released on King. All the recordings were reviewed as 'good', although none became major hits. The Hurricanes enjoyed more success with their live appearances and had many bookings. They played the Apollo, Howard, Royal & Earle Theatres, among others. The Hurricanes even toured Canada for a year! The Hurricanes got the opportunity of a life-time with a spot in a movie - 'Rockin' the Blues'.

Disillusioned with King Records, they were introduced to Jerry Field's Skyline Records. In November of 1958, they released 'Once In A Beautiful Lifetime' backed with 'I Dare You Baby'. These recordings were labeled as Henry Alston, which was Henry Austin and he was backed-up by the Hurricanes. Later Skyline re-released it with the flip of 'What Is There Left For Me'.

Soon after, the Hurricanes became acquainted with Bill Lasley who originated the Memo Records label. He convinced the Hurricanes to become the Memos. Three 45rpm records were release on the Memo label. It was after this that the group disbanded for a variety of reasons.

On May 5th, 2001, the Hurricanes were honored by UGHA (United in Group Harmony Association) with an award and induction into the Hall of Fame. This award establishes recognition for pioneer vocal groups for their overwhelming influence in the evolution of music. The Hurricanes, formed in the 1950's, definitely were a pioneer group that contributed to the popularity of vocal group harmony.

Since then, the Hurricanes have been revived and have received heart-warming accolades from audiences in New York to Pennsylvania! Don't miss this show-stopper!

The MEMORIES were the original Bob-O-Links from Washington, DC, formed in late 1956. Ron Lutz, Lou Martin and Robert 'Boots' Dove are original members of the Bobolinks, now with the MEMORIES. The name was changed to the Memories in 1961 and they now hail from Maryland. With their 47+ year career, they have performed at thousands of concerts around the country, as well as radio, televsion and Las Vegas.

Early in their careers, the MEMORIES discovered that they possessed exceptional musical chemistry. In 1960, Hi Ho Records released their first recording 'I Promise' , which was follwed by 'Love Bells' in 1961. Other records followed - such as 'When You Dance' for the Aladdin Record label and the album series 'America's Music'.

From the beginning of their remarkable career, the MEMORIES have had but one goal in mind - to provide exceptional listening and dancing music for those who enjoy going back to a time when growing up was just a lot of innocent fun. Perhaps even more remarkable than its diversity is the authenticity with which the MEMORIES delivers their large scope of material. They posses both a knowledge and affection for so many various forms of music, and reflect an intuition for knowing what to perform. This combination of talents have afforded the Memories an extraordinary level of success.

The REFLECTIONS all came from the same Rosedale, Queens neighborhood. After many years, they have reunited to once again perform as the REFLECTIONS.

As in many neighborhoods at the time, singing groups were formed, dissolved and reformed with singers moving about to find the right combination of sound and dedication. Alfred, Jerry, Joey, Dennis and Bob had all been members of other groups and they came together to form the REFLECTIONS.

Echo, electricity, heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer - Rosedale Station was the perfect place to sing. This was the place the REFLECTIONS practiced on a regular basis. Practice paid off - with releases on Crossroads Records. They released two 45rpms - 'Maybe Tomorrow' b/w 'I Really Must Know' and 'Because of You' b/w 'Rocket to the Moon'

The records received some air play and the group made personal appearances, catching the attention of a New York disc jockey who wanted to promote the group REFLECTIONS. Management and the disc jockey could not come to terms and so the group became disenchanted and broke up a short time later. About a year later, REFLECTIONS reformed and practiced on a regular basis. Families and life took precedence and once again the group was dissolved - everyone going in their own direction.

In 1986, a Rosedale Reunion was being planned. By this time, most of the group members lived in other states and hadn't been in touch for years. The band that perfomed at the reunion was the Satins - Joe Orlando of the Satins was an original member of the group REFLECTIONS! And all of the members of the orignal group were at the reunion also! They found a place to sing in the building and much to their surprise, their first attempt was on-key and never sounded better!! The united REFLECTIONS even performed a few songs with the Satins that night. Later that week, they all revisited the Rosedale Station only to find it locked - but the underpass of the station had a nice echo and they spent the rest of the afternoon singing.

Even though they all lived in different states, the guys kept in touch by telephone. Once in a while they would reunite and sing together. In the spring of 2002, the guys decided to get back together again as the group - REFLECTIONS. At this time, they added the newest member - Alan Tohn - songwriter and arranger.

TOMMY and the SAINTS have been overwhelming the oldies circuit in the Tampa Bay area for quite some time!

Kenny Galeano originally formed the Saints on Long Island with Tom Foy. Together with Lola Foy, Andy Kachiounes (baritone) and Ronnie Cassella (guitar) the Saints enjoyed performing. Eventually their lives took them in different directions. Kenny relocated to Florida and started the 'new' Saints. In the early 1990's, Kenny met Tommy Mara and was quite impressed with his magnificent vocal talent. And, as they say, the rest is history!

Within time, the Saints (Florida), adopted the name TOMMY and the SAINTS, so as not to confuse the New York Saints with the Florida Saints. Both groups are good friends and support each other...thanks to Kenny.

Tommy Mara has always been involved in the music entertainment field. His career has encompassed several genres of music, leaving a great impression with each and every one of his performances. Without a doubt, Tommy has made his mark on the oldies circuit - his passion, vocal ability and unforgettable performances are a force to be reckoned with! For a complete history of Tommy Mara, check the TOMMY and the SAINTS web site!

When you see and hear THINGS TO COME, their energy and level of enjoyment is apparent! They still enjoy performing after 32 years together; they started as The Plazas in 1966 at Springfield Gardens High School in Queens, NY. Through military service, disco, musical backup, studio recordings and revolving members, the original members - Al, Gene & Ron - united with Daryl and decided to stick with acappella. Each member steps forward to do 'lead', each with his own style and flair.

THINGS TO COME have received the UGHA 'Rookie Group of the Year' award in 1992, 'Veteran Group of the Year' award in 1993, and were First Place Winners of the New York Regional Harmony Sweepstakes in 1994. They have performed at most major venues on the East Coast!

THINGS TO COME also had the honor to perform with Harry Douglas as the 'The Deep River Boys' on many occasions. Their CD 'First Things First' includes many of the tracks they perform in concert, as well as including tracks with Harry Douglas.
