It is sad to report that Nick Santamaria, lead singer of the great Doo-Wop/Pop group THE CAPRIS has passed away on December 30, 2010 at the age of 69.  He had been suffering from cancer for a number of year.  Nick was the original lead singe of The Capris.  He left the group in the 1960 to become a New York City Police Officer.  He would later rejoin the group and remain until 2007.  Our thoughts are with his family and those who were close to him.

I’m sure he has joined the heavenly choir and is adding his wonderful voice to that stellar line-up.  Thanks for all the great music Nick. 

Till the next time—Joe
