Danny and the Juniors, who appeared on the American Bandstand' anniversary show in 1958, was a group of four teenaged boys whose members went to John Bertram High School with some of the show's regulars. Danny and the Juvenairs sang on the street corners until Artie Singer of Singular Records heard on of their songs "Do the Bop." He took them to Dick Clark, who realizing was on its way out as a dance craze, suggested they change the lyrics. The song got a new title, "At the Hop"(1957), which over night became a number on hit. The group's "Rock and Roll Is Here To Stay" (1958) became a teen anthem later that year
