In 1960 "Over The Rainbow" was released which skyrocketed to a #1 hit selling 2 1/2 million copies worldwide. "My Foolish Heart" hit nationally in 1963, which established a respectable place within the "Top 100's) and the Demensions appeared live on Dick Clark's American Bandstand repeatedly.
Currently, the dynamic sound of the Demensions remains a cornerstone for this musical genre, with modern-day appearances at Westbury Music Fair, PNC Bank Art Center, Lead East, and Mohegan Sun where standing ovations by loyal fans attest to the timeless magnetism and appreciation They command. Lenny Dell of The Demensions was inducted into the Doo Wop Music Hall of Fame in California. on March 14, 2015.

The Eternals are still performing today... on the radio (WCBS) & Television (PBS more Doo-Wop 50), and have performed in such places as Radio City Music Hall, Madison Square Garden, Westbury Music Fair, Atlantic City, Nassau Coliseum, among other places around the Tri-State area. They have also traveled as far as California for The Doo-Wop Society of So. Cal. and Kansas City for the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
The Classic Sounds
If you close your eyes and think back to Murray the K, the Brooklyn Paramount, the street lights on Belmont Avenue, the boulevards of Bensonhurst, straphanging from a leather strap on your way to see "Dem Bums", Frankie, Dion, WMCA Good Guys, cruising the streets in a '56 Chevy with the windows cranked down, singing to the tunes on your portable AM radio, you’ll know why “The Classic Sounds” sing DooWop.
That's why a surgeon, a plumber, 2 teachers, and a musician can lean in close to each other, sing those back-up sounds that are second nature to us all, give you a little hand jive and a smile, and make you remember what "feel good" acapella music is all about.
