The Chevrons


Produced in doo-wop central, Manhattan’s Washington Levels neighborhood, the Chevrons are most widely known for two regional strikes for the Brent label, along with the starting for Jim Croce producer and Cashman & Western member Dennis Minogue (aka Terry Cashman). The group was produced in 1959, with lead Minogue (also a football potential customer for the Detroit Tigers), initial tenor Marty Trautman, second tenor Frank Williams, baritone Gary Giordon, and bass Al Conde. (Conde, the final to become listed on the group, previously sang using the Spirals on the single “College Bells,” documented for George Goldner’s Eliminated Records.) Agreed upon to Bobby Shad’s Period Information, the Chevrons debuted with “That is included with Like,” released on Shad’s Brent subsidiary. Elevated airplay over the East Coastline also provided the Chevrons an opportunity to tour, using a caravan led by Bruce “Cousin Brucie” Morrow. They got into the national graphs in 1960-1961 with “Lullabye” and made an appearance on some of the best rock & move television shows from the period, including Dick Clark’s American Bandstand. The Chevrons’ debut LP, 1961’s Sing-A-Long Rock and roll N Roll, adopted quickly on its pumps — with preparations by Mickey Baker of Mickey & Sylvia — and two singles had been pulled through the recording: “Small Celebrity” and “Arrive OPT FOR Me.” The group break up soon after, nevertheless, with Conde heading on to type another group (the holiday season) and composing “New Orleans” and “Existence” for the Sabrina label, shaped by Angelo D’Aleo and Fred Milano from Dion & the Belmonts. After changing his name to Terry Cashman, Minogue teamed with Gene Pistilli to create popular for Spanky & Our Gang (“Weekend Will Never Become exactly the same”) and create several strikes for Jim Croce. He also obtained hits within the duo Cashman & Western along with a single single, “Talkin’ Football (Willie, Mickey as well as the Duke).” A 1989 reunion for Don K. Reed’s radio display on New York’s WCBS-FM brought the Chevrons back again together once again, and a decade later on, the Wop Ding a Ling collection put together (among various performers from enough time and Brent brands) the Chevrons’ “Lullaby” and “YOU SHOULDN’T BE Heartless.”
