The Dovells were a rock vocal group formed in Philadelphia, PA, in 1957, as The Brooktones (taking their name from Overbrook High School, which all its members attended). The original members were lead singer Len Barry, Jerry Summers, Mike Freda, Arnie Satin, Jim Mealey and Mark Gordesky. They started to get dates singing at various school functions and every so often at a local record store owned by John Madara, who was also a songwriter (he co-wrote "At the Hop" for Danny and the Juniors).
