DANNY & THE JUNIORS: JOE TERRANOVA and FRANK MAFFEI
B/w band photo by Jack Hoffman of Danny & The Juniors in black pants and sequined shirts, signed by original band members Joe Terranova and Frank Maffei
Inscribed photograph signed "Ben", "Frank/Maffei", "Joe Terry" and "Angel" in brown ink. Inscribed "To Mary Damon & the Jrs." in brown ink in unknown hand. B/w, 8x10 overall, 7¼x8 image, one surface. Photo by Jack Hoffman. Captioned: "Danny/and/the/Juniors/featuring Joe Terry/The Class Act of Original American Rock & Roll". We don't know who "Ben" and "Angel" are, but they were apparently added to fill out the lineup in the absence of founding members Dave White Tricker and Danny Rapp. Few bands have the luck - or at least the initial luck - of Philadelphia doo wop outfit Danny & The Juniors, whose first song At the Hop shot to the top of the charts in 1958. Originally formed as the Juvenairs in 1955 and composed of Danny Rapp (1941-1983) as lead tenor, Frank Maffei as second tenor, Joe Terranova as baritone/bass and Dave White Tricker as tenor, (saxophonist Lennie Baker was added later). the band was discovered by Philly businessman John Madara during an afterschool gig. He introduced them to Artie Singer of Singular Records and recorded the White-written Do the Bop, renamed the more contemporary At the Hop. Danny & The Juniors played the song on American Bandstand after Little Anthony and the Imperials cancelled an appearance there, and the song began its chart-topping run in 1957, after Singular sold the song to ABC Paramount. Danny & The Juniors wrote a number of classics into the early 1960s, including Dottie (1958), Rock And Roll Is Here To Stay (1958), Twistin' U. S. A. (1960) and Twistin' All Night Long (1962), but only Rock and Roll Is Here To Stay managed to crack the Top 20. White went on his own singing and songwriting career in the early 1960s, and Baker became a member of the 50s revivalist group Sha-Na-Na, but the surviving charter members of the band continue to tour and perform. Lightly toned and creased. Light scratches on image (not visible head-on). Otherwise in fine condition.
