Universally regarded as one of Rock and Roll’s finest and most versatile entertainers, Peter Noone is second to none! Star of stage, screen and record, Noone’s performances are the stuff of legend, deftly delivering a broad palette of music, all gems that, through his voice, defined a generation. Plus, over 60 million records sold!
At the age of fifteen, Peter achieved international fame as “Herman”, lead singer of the legendary pop band Herman’s Hermits. His classic hits include: “I’m Into Something Good”, “Mrs. Brown, you’ve Got A Lovely Daughter”, “I’m Henry VIII, I Am”, “Silhouettes”, “Can’t You Hear My Heartbeat”, “Wonderful World”, “Just A Little Bit Better”, “There’s A Kind of Hush”, “A Must To Avoid”, “Listen People”, “No Milk Today” “The End of the World” “Leaning On A Lamp Post”, and “Dandy”. Ultimately, Herman’s Hermits sold over fifty-two million recordings. In all, fourteen singles and seven albums went gold.
As “Herman”, the photogenic Noone graced the cover of nearly every international publication including Time Magazine. He performed on hundreds of television shows and appeared with such luminaries as Ed Sullivan, Jackie Gleason, Dean Martin and Danny Kaye. He was cast as the engaging “Duke of Cheshire” in ABC’s musical version of The Canterville Ghost. Soon thereafter, he portrayed the title role in Hallmark Hall of Fame’s Pinocchio. He also starred in three highly successful feature films for M-G-M: Mrs. Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter, Hold On! and When The Boys Meet The Girls.
Peter’s acting career flourished with guest-starring roles in prime-time television series such as: Married With Children, My Two Dads, Dave’s World, Easy Street, Too Close For Comfort, and Laverne and Shirley. In a memorable episode of Quantum Leap, he shed his “nice guy” image to portray “Dwayne”, a scheming promoter with murderous intentions. He starred as “Apoo”, a frustrated African relief worker, in the Los Angeles stage premiere of Topokana Martyr’s Day and as Alfred Von Wilmers in the U.S. National Tour of the smash Broadway hit Romance, Romance.
Accompanied by his band, Herman’s Hermits, Noone currently performs over 200 concerts a year. He consistently plays to sold-out venues and his admirers span the generations. Today’s teen girls scream just as passionately as their mothers did back in 1965, prompting VH1 to select Noone as their viewer’s choice for the “Sexiest Artist of the Year”. There is no doubt that Peter Noone’s extraordinary talent, disarming wit, handsome features and compelling stage presence will continue to delight fans of all ages, for a long, long time to come.
Back in the 1960s, Ron Dante racked up a handful of number one singles. Dante was the voice behind comic book and cartoon characters like the Archies who had stepped off the printed page onto the world of music’s stage. Ron was the lead singer of the 1969 chart topper “Sugar, Sugar,” for the Archies’ which was followed by their next million seller “Jingle Jangle”. The Archies had 7 chart records during that time including “Bang Shang A Lang” “Who’s Your Baby” and “Summer Prayer For Peace”.
While the Archies were riding high in 1969 Dante scored again by lending his voice to the Cuff Links for “Tracy.” That single, too, became a million seller and was in the top ten at the same time Sugar, Sugar was number one.
The Happenings virtually exploded onto the national charts in May of 1966 with their first single release, “See You In September”. The song quickly spiraled up the charts to become an international #1 record throughout the entire summer. Most recently, Entertainment Magazine has listed “See You In September” in the top 100 summer songs of all time! The Happenings, continuing to become a major force in the music industry, soon released their next smash hit “Go Away Little Girl” and hugely successful album “Bye, Bye, So Long, Farewell”. With Bob Miranda, the lead singer of The Happenings and the voice that literally spearheaded the group into international stardom, many great releases were to follow including the classic hits, “I Got Rhythm”, “My Mammy”, and a virtual treasure chest of hit albums!
1910 FRUITGUM COMPANY:
The 1910 Fruitgum Company ® virtually exploded onto the National charts in 1968 with the first single release, “SIMON SAYS”. The song quickly moved up the charts to become a # 2 record on the national charts and reached the top of the charts in the United Kingdom. The 1910 Fruitgum Company followed up this initial success with another smash hit, “1-2-3 RED LIGHT”. The group’s next hit record, “INDIAN GIVER” became The 1910 Fruitgum Company’s third Gold record.
