The Regents were an Italian-American doo-wop group from the Bronx in New York who had a US top twenty hit in 1961 with the original version of Barbara Ann later successfully covered by The Beach Boys.
They followed it with Runaround that also made top thirty but the group had broken up by the time the record was released.
They reformed in 1973 with Villari the only remaining original member.
