For the best of Doo-Wop music, you can't go wrong by turning to the Larados. If this group's
   name sounds familiar, it should. The original Larados got their start at Edsel Ford High School,
in Dearborn, Michigan. It wasn't unusual to hear The Larados practicing in the hallways,
staircase or bathroom, because they were always looking for that echo.
They were active from 1955-1960 and had
"Bad, Bad Guitar Man" and "Now The Parting Begins" as hits.
In 1978 The Larados merged with The Reflections,
to form the Mid-West's best Vocal Harmony group.
 The Reflections produce a high energy, good-time dance and stage show!

The Reflections were all from Detroit's western suburbs.
After one release on the Kay-Ko label, they  signed with Golden World Records,
where they recorded top hits  like"(Just Like) Romeo & Juliet", "Poor Man's Son",
"Shabby Little Hut" and "Like Columbus Did".
They all  ranked in the Top 30 in Billboard and Cashbox magazines.
"(Just Like) Romeo & Juliet" skyrocketed to No. 5 on the pop charts,
and the #1 spot on the  Rhythm and Blues charts in 1964,
with sales peaking at just over 4 million.




To the many requests we get for the tricky lyrics in
"Just Like Romeo and Juliet"
here they are-
....'talk about Love and Romance
just wait 'til I get myself straight
I'm gonna put Romeos' fame
right smack dab out of date...
