Norman Fox & The Rob Roys

A rock ‘n’ roll vocal group from Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA, who had one hit song, ‘Tell Me Why’ (1957). Members came from Dewitt Clinton High School and were Norm Fox (lead tenor), Bobby Troutman (tenor), Andre Lilly (second tenor), Bobby Thierer (baritone) and Buzz Halfan (bass). The group surprisingly recorded on a Houston, Texas imprint, Backbeat, a subsidiary of Don Robey’s Duke label. A follow-up, ‘Dance Girl Dance’, met with no success upon its release in 1958. One more recording for Hammer (later on Capitol) in 1959, ‘Pizza Pie’, likewise failed to find an audience and the group not long after broke up. In the late 80s, Fox and Thierer re-formed the Rob-Roys with three new members and recorded some a cappella sides for the Starlight label.

NF & Rob Roys version of Tell Me Why is soo much better than the Belmonts and they don't get the recognition they deserve?
