The original lead singer for the Starlighters, David Brigati truly had the "voice" of an angel.
If you've ever heard David sing "Face of An Angel" (1959), you know what I'm talking about.
David is to the left in this shot, Larry Venieri is in the center, and Joey Dee is to the right.
Here are the Starlighters in all their glory.....
David Brigati, Carlton Latimore, Willie Davis, Joey Dee, and Larry Venieri.
Many a celebrity crowded into the Peppermint Lounge on 45th Street
in downtown New York City to catch these fellas on stage.
These two guys make up the sweet sounding background on most of the great Rascals' hits.
The unofficial "5th" Rascal, Dave sang "Once Upon A Dream" on the Rascals' album of the same name.
