The Brooklyn Bridge Live

Originally lead by Johnny Maestro who began his career in 1957 as the original lead singer of the Crests, one of the first interracial groups of the recording industry. Then in 1967, another New York vocal group called the Del-Satins—who had become well known in the New York area as weekly performers on the local dance party program The Clay Cole Show, had made several non-charting recordings between 1959 and 1967 under their own name, and were also noted for backing up Dion on his post-Belmonts recordings—were looking for a new lead singer to replace original lead Stan Zizka. In 1968, Sperber was hosting her once a month Battle of the Bands talent search and brought Maestro along as the evening's special guest.
