 This Cameron's group is an interracial BLIND group from the Bronx first know as The Jiveliers and consisted of Robert Browne,Pat Gaines and William Raabe Jr.(the other members were unknow).

They were discovered by the owner of Cousin's Records Lou Cicchetti who renamed the group and send the guys to the Duane Studio in New York where the group recorded on June 5,1960 two sides_Cheryl/Boom Chick-A-Boom. finally released as a Cousin's single in late 1960.


This single was the only Cousins master which Cicchetti never offered to another label.

On June 6,1960 the group with Diane Umhaver as High Tenor recorded two new sides_Baby Don't You Know/She's Got It. but these sides never were released by any label.
