Groupe Doo Wop US originaire de Philadelphie (Massachusetts). Danny And The Juniors a été fondé en 1955 par Danny Rapp (né le 9 Mai 1941) avec des étudiants comme lui. Ils firent leurs premières armes dans les soirées et les "rallies" organisés dans les écoles. Remarqué par Artie Singer, ils enregistrèrent dès 1957 pour Singular Records. Danny And The Juniors ont constitué l'un des principaux groupes de Doo Wop blanc avec les Belmonts de Dion. Ils se sont séparés en 1964. Danny Rapp est décédé le 5 Avril 1983 à Parker (Arizona).

Danny & the Juniors shot straight to the top of the charts in early 1958 with their biggest hit ever, the gold-selling "At the Hop" (penned by the songwriting team of Dave White and John Madara), though they reached the charts again with eight more singles through 1963, notably the Top 40 charters "Rock and Roll Is Here to Stay," "Dottie," and "Twistin' U.S.A."
Danny Rapp, Frank Maffei, Joe Terranova, and Dave White Tricker (aka Dave White) were four Philadelphia high school friends — all were born in 1940 or 1941 — who formed an atypical late-'50s rock & roll dance combo, originally calling themselves the Juvenairs. Rapp — the group's leader — choreographed their dance steps and invented the routines that they performed during their sets. After playing after-school gigs and local shows as a foursome for a while, they later added saxophonist Lennie Baker to the lineup.
While still in high school in late 1957, they were working a record hop as the intermission entertainment, when a local businessman named John Madara spotted the band. Madara had an interest in rock & roll promotion and introduced them to a local songwriter and Vocals coach named Artie Singer, who also ran his own label, Singular Records.
