Brothers Dick and Don Addrisi (December 14, 1938 - November 13, 1984) were a pop vocal and songwriting duo from Winthrop, Massachusetts that became famous beginning in the late 1950s. Their parents were the Flying Addrisis, a famous traveling trapeze act in which both Dick and Don participated as kids. The duo is best known for the melodic soft rock ballad, "We've Got To Get It On Again" (1972).
The Addrisi Brothers debuted in 1959 with "Cherrystone," a cheery Everly Brothers sound-alike rocker recorded when they were in their late teens. They re-emerged on both the Adult Contemporary and Pop/Rock charts in 1972 with "We've Got To Get It On Again," a Pop/Rock Top 40 hit which also made the Adult Contemporary Top 10. This smash was followed in 1974 on the Adult Contemporary chart by another soft rock ballad, "Somebody Found Her (Before I Lost Her)." The Addrisi Brothers' hits, which continued through 1979 on both charts, also include the disco-styled "Slow Dancin' Don't Turn Me On" (1977), "Does She Do It Like She Dances" (1977), and "Ghost Dancer" (1979).
As songwriters, The Addrisi Brothers had their biggest success with The Associations' 1967 hit, "Never My Love," and the duo later charted with their own version in 1977. They also wrote and performed the title theme for the TV series, "Nanny And The Professor."
