A Brief History

In the late '50s in Center City, Philadelphia, local vocal coach, Artie Singer, whose student, Johnny Madara, had recorded Singer's song, "Be My Girl," hooked up with the singer to record a song written by Madara and partner Dave White through his small Philly label, Singular Records, called "Do The Bop." This would later be changed to "At The Hop" and become a classic in Rock and Roll History.
