The Addrisi Brothers were an American pop duo from Winthrop, Massachusetts. The brothers themselves were Donald "Don" Addrisi (December 14, 1938 – November 13, 1984 (aged 45)) and Richard "Dick" Addrisi (born July 4, 1941 (age 76)). Both Don and Dick played parts in their family's acrobatic group, The Flying Addrisis. In the 1950s, they got in touch with Lenny Bruce about starting a singing career and moved to California. They auditioned for parts on the Mickey Mouse Club, but were rejected. Soon after, however, they signed to Del-Fi Records and recorded several singles. Aside from the modest chart hit "Cherrystone" (1959), these were not successes. Further releases from Imperial Records and Warner Bros. Records fared no better, so the pair began working more as songwriters.
