The Capris are a veteran doo-wop group from Queens, New York with an ever-changing lineup that became famous during the early 1960s. Formed in 1957 while the members were all still in high school, the original lineup consisted of John Cassese (bass), Mike Mincieli (first tenor), Vinnie Narcardo (baritone), Frank Reina (second tenor), and lead singer Nick "Santo" Santamaria (baritone). They are best known for the dreamy oldies classic, "There's A Moon Out Tonight" (1960).
The Capris had a resurgence in popularity many years later when The Manhattan Transfer had a hit in 1985 with their remake of "Morse Code Of Love," one of a number of songs written by Santamaria and other group members. They have continued performing actively to the present day, with many personnel changes over the years.
