Carl Henderson was the only black member of the group recorded for the Texas label Remco Records as a solo artist and later moved to California where have in the mid 60’s minor hits on the Renfro label.the rest of the group with several personal changes continue singing as a hispanic white group.Later Dimas Garzia was part of The Royal Jesters(see in this blog).

Additional note;

According to The Complete Book Of Doo-Wop this group recorded from 1958 to 1963 for labels as Marvels,Rhythm,Vee Jay,Midsouth,Skylight,Goldwax or Fernwood Records but I think these recordings are another mistake of the book.
