The Dovells - Voice Your Choice

The Dovells were from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They used stage names in place of their real names: Len Barry (Leonard Borisoff), Jerry Summers (Jerry Gross), Mike Dennis (Mike Freda), Danny Brooks (Jim Meeley), and Arnie Silver, the only member without a nom de plume.

Len Barry left the group in late 1962 to pursue a solo career and scored hits such as 1-2-3, Like A Baby, and a few others. Before he left, The Dovells scored eight times on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, including 2 Top Ten hits.

And those two Top Ten hits are waiting for your votes this week on Voice Your Choice: Bristol Stomp and You Can't Sit Down. Have a favourite? Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page. We'll play the song with the most votes next week on Treasure Island Oldies.
