Josep Apuzzo from East Haven, Connecticut developing a promissing singing career from his early years (he talking vocal lessons with a coah) and with the bird of the vocal group sound he decided to form a vocal group with his neighbors Chick and Tony Leone and Chick Ciccolallo. They practice with the classic song_In the still Of the Night. And chose the group name of The Romans.

In 1956 recorded four songs and the Haven label released_Honey Love / Why Can’t This Be So?. The disc have a good local acceptacion, the group appear on TV and local shows with Bobby Darin or Connie Francis but never made another recording.

Just discovered this on youtube. Tony Leone is my father-in-law -he passed on in the early 1980's. His brother Chick(in photo) also has passed. He was a police officer for the town of East Haven for a number of years. He served on the force with my dad, Frank Konesky.
I personally don't know the other two gentlemen. This was very cool to come across. I sent it to his sons - two of whom are professional musicians.

My dad sang lead for the group. This was a real find and truly a thrill. Would really like to hear the flip side "Why Can't This Be So?" Thanks for posting the group photo, I have a different one in an 8x10 glossy. This recording was made when I was in the fourth grade. This brings back so many great memories.
