|Tony Passalaqua also born in Brooklyn,, New York. The
Fascinators were composed of Tony Passalaqua, lead, Angelo La Grecca,
baritone, Nick Trivatto, tenor, Ed Wheeler, tenor, and George Cernacek,
bass (though he was just a tenor and occasionally had to smoke cigars
before appearances or record sessions in order to deepen his voice!)
Signing with Capital Records, they wanted to record Tony only, he said
not without the group. After 3 records Capitol dropped them. Tony then
changed his name to Tony Richards and sang with the Twilights. The
Archies and "Sugar Sugar" was next before forming the Legends
of Doo Wop.
