Oh Rosemarie

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.
