The Juvenaires, who later became Danny and the Juniors. Johnny and Dave started writing together and came up with "Do the
Bop" which became "At the Hop" thanks to Dick Clark. Madara and White went on to form Madara and White Productions and co-wrote scores
of Billboard chart records like "You Don't Own Me" for Lesley Gore, "1-2-3" with Len Barry, "The Fly" for Chubby Checker, "Pop-Pop-Pop-Pie"
for the Sherrys, "Birthday Party" for The Pixies Three, "The Boy Next Door" for The Secrets,"Dancin' The Strand" for
Maureen Gray, "Over the Weekend" for Billy and the Essentials, "Play Those Oldies Mister Deejay" for Anthony and the Sophomores and
