Growing up the Drifters,Platters, Skyliners and Coasters were favorite groups..Jimmy Beaumont and the late greats Johnny Maestro and Joey Vann of the original Duprees favorite lead singers along with Dion, Ben E King and Sam Cooke. Of course the legendary and still going strong Mr T ..Tony Bennett was a great influence. Elvis and Frank were co-kings.. The British invasion groups were amazing, with the Beatles and Kinks favorites.. I do a lot of the songs of the aforementioned and humbly hope I do them some justice.
