Formed in East Meadow, New York, USA, in the late 50s, the Bell Notes were a one-hit rock group whose ‘I’ve Had It’ reached the Top 10 in early 1959. The group comprised vocalist and saxophonist Carl Bonura, vocalist and guitarist Ray Ceroni, bass player Lenny Giambalvo, pianist Pete Kane and drummer John Casey. The band was discovered by disc jockey Alan Fredericks, who produced their original composition, ‘I’ve Had It’, and released it through Time Records. The single reached number 6 and although Time released four further singles and an EP, the band had no further hits. The Bell Notes recorded several singles for the Madison label in 1960, but again there was no success and the group faded.
