Larry Chance and The Earls

Larry Chance and The Earls represent the music that helped to define rock ‘n roll - the original Doo-Wop era that put the street-corner society onto the national charts. Larry Chance and The Earls can trace their roots right back to the first era of rock n' roll. Born in south Philadelphia, Larry attended school with the likes of Fabian Forte, Frankie Avalon and Chubby Checker. At that time, Philadelphia was one of the most happening places in America; for one thing, it was the home of "American Bandstand" and it's where Chance first "sang on the corner". When his family moved to the Gun Hill Road area of the Bronx, the teenage Chance realized that vocal groups were to be found on almost every street corner and he lost no time developing one of his own. Founded in 1957, The Earls consisted of Larry and five of his friends from Evander Childs High School. Through the years, as original members moved on to other things, The Earls' current line-up developed with drummer/2nd tenor Bobby "Tee" Tribuzio joining in 1963, bassist/1st tenor Bob Coleman, keyboardist/bass vocalist, Danny Girlando and guitarist/baritone, Chuck Mearizo.

Larry explains that a lot of fifties' vocal music resulted from the simple fact that, "Although times were prosperous, our parents weren't ready to buy guitars or other instruments, so we had to make music with our voices. The Earls, above all, did that in terms of musical arrangements. We tried to make ourselves sound like a guitar or horn accompaniment." Of course, by the time personnel changes began to occur, The Earls realized that musicians who could play instruments as well as sing would be a key to ensuring longevity and the group evolved accordingly.

Larry recalls that The Earls were discovered by a man named Trade Martin, who heard them singing on the corner, and handed them his card. "We gave him a call about two weeks later, went into a studio and did our first recording session, which included "Life is But A Dream".

At that time, disc jockey Murray the "K", whose "Swingin' Soiree" on WINS was one of New York's most popular radio shows, gave The Earls their first major break. As a result of overwhelming phone-in votes on Murray's "champ Record of the Night" and "Boss Record of the Week" contests, The Earls' single, "Life Is But A Dream" drowned the competition - including and Elvis disc! "We had at least a thousand kids in the Bronx with pockets full of dimes," remembers Larry fondly, thinking of how determined The Earls were to become successful. It worked. By winning the poll, "Life Is But A Dream" became one of the station's pick hits and went on to be a smash. It was followed by "Remember Then", and enough other super hits to give The Earls FIVE songs on WCBS-FM's list of the 500 greatest records of all time!

When films like "American Graffiti" and TV shows such as "Happy Days" started to dominate our thoughts, people began to recall how much rock's original unpretentious era meant to them. "Some acts have fans. We have family," says with feeling. So, wether or not you "Remember Then", the time to tune into Larry Chance and The Earls is right now!
