Biography

This R&B vocal group from Brooklyn, New York, USA, comprised Jimmy Weston (lead), Johnny Lee (first tenor), Willie Ephraim (second tenor), Nathaniel McCune (baritone) and Roosevelt Mays (bass). In 1957, the Danleers signed with composer/manager Danny Webb, who took the group and one of his songs, ‘One Summer Night’, to Amp-3 Records. ‘One Summer Night’ captured perfectly the teen angst of the rock ‘n’ roll era, and went to number 4 R&B and number 7 pop in 1957. Despite some equally evocative follow-ups on Mercury, the Danleers failed to have another hit, breaking up in 1959. Jimmy Weston continued his singing career in the Webtones, another recorded group managed by Danny WebThe Webtones lasted until 1964.
