The Tokens


Hank Medress was a teenager in Brooklyn, NY, when he started his vocal quartet in 1955 with Neil Sedaka. The group's original name was the Linc-Tones, after their school, Lincoln High School. Sedaka left for a solo career, and lead singer Jay Siegel joined brothers Mitch Margo and Phil Margo and Medress to become The Tokens. See more trivia »
