The Brooklyn Bridge was formed in 1968 on Long Island, NY and were led by Johnny Maestro, who made a name for himself as the lead singer of the Crests, who were one of the most successful integrated doo wop groups, most famous for the classic sock hop hit "16 Candles". Brooklyn Bridge was an 11-member group made up of Maestro, the hit singer Dion's backing group the Del Satins (Fred Ferrara, Mike Gregorio and Les Cauchi), and some dudes on instruments that pegged themselves the Rhythm Method (musical director Tom Sullivan, guitarist Jim Macioce, organist Carolyn Woods, bassist Jim Rosica, trumpeter Shelly Davis, saxophonist Joe Ruvio and drummer Artie Cantanzarita).
The Brooklyn Bridge snagged a gold record in 1969 on the Buddah label with a cover of the Fifth Dimension's "Worst That Could Happen.", which was written by Jimmy Webb, but unfortunately that ended up being their one and only hit song. The next singles they released, "Blessed Is the Rain" and "Your Husband-My Wife" were good, but didn't do much chart-wise, and neither did their subsequent albums. After the group's contract with Buddah expired in 1972 they kept performing live though, and Maestro, Ferrara, Cauchi and Rosica could still be found doing their thing as Brooklyn Bridge as late as the 1990's.
