DANNY & THE JUNIORS
Danny & The Juniors began singing together in the
early 1950's. The four Philadelphia youngsters -- Frank Maffei, Danny
Rapp, Joe Terranova and Dave White -- were only 13 and 14 years old and
known as The Juvenairs. Big fans of the local rhythm and blues radio
stations. it was there they they heard the first stirrings of a new music
soon to become known as Rock 'n Roll. They knew this was something they
wanted to be a part of and began to perform the new music as well as their
own original material at school dances, local clubs and restaurants.
As record companies began a frenzied quest for young people who could
perform the new genre, the Juvenaires were soon discovered and transformed
into Danny & The Juniors. When their own original song "At
The Hop"was recorded, they were on their way -- straight
to the top.
A monster hit on 5 continents, "At
The Hop" reached #1 on pop, country and rhythm and blues
charts. Today it stands as the #23 all-time biggest record according to
The Billboard Magazine List Of #1 Hits.
In the face of parental opposition and critic's prediction that rock 'n'
roll was a passing fad, their next hit, "Rock
'n' Roll Is Here To Stay", became a veritable anthem and
Early in 1958 Dick Clark presented Danny And The Juniors with a gold
record for "At
The Hop" on American Bandstand, the first of many awards and
accolades they would receive over their career, including Best New Group
of 1957 and continuing to the present. More recently they have been awarded
the prestigious Philadelphia Music Alliance Achievement Award.
Danny And The Juniors have toured with many early legends and founders of
American Rock In Roll including Fats Domino, Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly,
Jerry Lee Lewis and The Platters in the famous Alan Freed Big Beat Show.
They have appeared on American Bandstand almost 50 time, as well many
other TV shows.
They have traveled millions of miles and entertained millions of people in
all fifty states, Canada, Europe, South America and Asia and feel
privileged to be able to continue to do so.
Dave White left the group in the 1960s to concentrate on writing and production and composed a number of hits
including "You Don't Own Me" for Leslie Gore and "Like A Baby" for Len Barry.
In their fifth decade as performers, Danny & The Juniors appear at
conventions, theatres, clubs, casinos, fairs and festivals. Their
wholesome, fun-loving stage show is embellished with comedy, impressions,
bright costumes and audience participation, and is regarded as one
of the best in the business.
