FRANK LARUSSA - Started at the age of 12 yrs. old in a Christmas program at P.S. 145 in Brooklyn, N.Y. Then at age 13, he was asked to sing in the group called The Kents. They cut a record, that same year in 1959, called I Love You So, which he sang lead, and the flip side was The Happy Beat, a great lindy song. We had three of Alan Freeds musicians on the record also, it was a great sound. After three years the group broke up and he went to singing on the corners in Brooklyn with a group called The Fascinators, which cut a record called, Oh Rosemarie and the Flipside Oh Chapel Bells. A good friend of his, was Tony Passalaqua, who was the lead singer. After that he put his singing on the back burner. Till my Wife, Jill and I moved to The Renaissance Adult Community in New Jersey, where he joined a singing group called The Antigues. He stayed with them for about four years, when he had the pleasure of meeting Steve from ROCK 'N RHYTHM at the Ocean Italian festival. And as they say the rest is history.
PATRICIA MANZO - Patti sings Crazy, Gee Whiz, Locomotion, Bad Girl, etc. She loves performing songs from artist such as Anne Murray, Whitney Houston, Donna

Patti sang with Friends & Relations (1971-1 973), Hi-Spirit (1973-1993). Patti has recorded with Hi-Spirit,and on occasion vocals along with Steve songs written by Ray Dahrouge. Patty sings a rich lower and mid-register with a full yet, soft euphoric quality while never losing clarity. Her leads are very soul searching and emotional, as well as, pleasurable to the ear.
hey say the rest is history.
