Biography

Active: 1950s
Country Of origin: United States of America

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~ Rovi
