The Ames brothers were a popular singing quartet in the 50s and 60s. The group consisted of brothers Gene, Vic, Joe, and Ed. They were four of the nine children of David and Sarah Urick, Russian Jewish immigrants who settled in Boston. Their 50s hits included "You, You, You," "Rag Mop", and "The Naughty Lady of Shady Lane". Ed left the group in 59 to pursue acting. He became well-known for his role as "Mingo" on TVs "Daniel Boone".

Bob Feldman, Jerry Goldstein, and Richard Gottehrer were a trio of Brooklyn songwriter-producers who landed a number one girl group hit with the Angels "My Boyfriends Back." Later wrote the garage band classic "I Want Candy" as the band "The Strangeloves", then, when forced to tour behind it, came up with a fictional story about being sheepherders from fictional Armstrong, Australia, rather than three nice Jewish boys from the Brill Building. Refused repeated requests and escalating remuneration to appear on Ed Sullivan because they had blown one of the band members grandmothers gift of money to finance medical school on the "band" and she watched Sullivan religiously. Goldstein went on to produce records for "War" in the 1970s, and Gottehrer produced efforts by Blondie, the Go-Gos, and others.
