ROSE-MAR INTERNATIONAL
PRESENTS
THE FABULOUS DUPREES


The Duprees
Starting out in the early sixties, in Jersey City, New Jersey, The Duprees were formed by Mike Arnone.
They were discovered by George Paxton, the president of Coed Records and former big band leader from the 1940's.
Impressed with The Duprees' smooth vocal quality,
he had them record Jo Stafford's 1950's ballad "You Belong To Me" with Big Band arrangements.
It was an instant national hit and the group's first Million Seller.
The unmistakable sound was born and the hits kept rolling:

TOMMY PETILLO- Lead Singer: The "Heart, Soul and Voice of The Duprees" has a captivating vocal style that still mesmerizes audiences

TONY TESTA - Bass, Baritone, and Falsetto Tenor: Tony is the Coordinator and Master of Ceremonies for the group. His charismatic personality lights up every performance.

PHIL GRANITO - First Tenor: Phil has one of the most unique voices in the business. When he sings his "Jackie Wilson Medley" the audiences go wild!

JIMMY SPINELLI - Second Tenor: Jimmy brings an energy and style to the stage that is unsurpassed. A veteran of the business, he shows no signs of ever slowing down!
