The Third Degree

1) A group of session musicians paired with vocalist Jon Allen to rerecord a track called "Mercy." 2) Out of the ashes of nothing in particular, not really a revival of anything, and not claiming allegiance to any stodgy point of view, The Third Degree is rather quite an original band in a rather rehashed market. They're punk, and aside from a rather healthy affinity towards skateboarding, their style of music is not geared toward some predefined mold, but is rather the logical result of three active participants in the Orange County...

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.
