The Elegants

This New York doo wop group earned notoriety for their masterpiece "Little Star" in 1958, which topped both R&B and pop charts. They were a white ensemble led by Vito Picone with Arthur Venosa, Frank Tardogono, Carmen Romano, and James Mochella. All had been in other groups before uniting as the Elegants. They continued recording for Hull, United Artists, Limelight, Photo, IPG, and Laurie through the '50s, '60s, and into the '70s, but never had another hit, despite cutting a number of solid ballads. There were two other editions in the mid-'60s, Vito Picone with the Elegants and Vito & the Elegants. ~ Ron Wynn

The Elegants perform every February at the Elks club in Paramus NJ and Vito and Nino and Jimmy are still there.

I believe Vito Picone is the lead singer; I know they still perform and still hoping for the opportunity to see them live

These guys, like Dion and the Belmonts, were some of the first of the "Italian Doo-Wop" groups, which of course, eventually lead to The Four Seasons. Dion covered this song, but "The Elegants" did it first, and theirs is the definitive version (although everything Dion covered, he covered well).

is this not Dion and the Belmont's?

Those were the best days of music. When music was real and so were the
artists who sang them.

I remember being younger and at nite, I would be in my room and listening to the radio until late into the night. What's funny I still do it now, how times change, but yet stay the same. Same song from the little transitor radio to a high tech computer. Wow!
