The Valentines

There are at least two groups who call themselves "The Valentines". 1) One of the most highly regarded American Doo Wop groups from the mid 1950s. Their records are highly sought by collectors. Although they never had a record on the national hit parades, they were extremely popular in New York and the East Coast in general and had many regional big sellers. The stage performances of the group were sellouts and their harmonizing and choreography in sequence were amongst the most accomplished of their time.

The Perennials

Tuneful, inventive, modern punk rock is hard to come by these days without succumbing to the tortures of those three little letters, "E-M-O". In every suburb across America, band after band is Taking Back My Chemical Fallout, crying crocodile tears all over their overpriced guitars while the ladies up front muss their overteased hair and pout for the cameras. In the freezing alleys of working-class Boston, however, an antidote may finally be germinating in the form of THE PERENNIALS. The band may be emotive, but they are anything but emo.
