About
WINNERS OF THE 2017 NEW YORK STATE SENIOR IDOL COMPETITION!

The Tribunes are a legendary 5-man acappella group specializing in the performance of vocal music from the 1950's and 1960's. The group was originally formed in 1957 and enjoyed success with their 1959 Top Forty recording, "Code of Love" on Paul Winley's famous Derrick Records label. Paul Winley has the distinction of producing the legendary album, "The Paragons Meet The Jesters", often revered as the quintessential doo wop recording of all time.

In 1959, The Tribunes won top honors at the world famous Apollo Theater's Amateur Night in Harlem, New York. The group continued to make appearances at Rock n' Roll shows, night clubs and major entertainment venues nationwide until the early 1960's, when the ensemble disbanded.

In 1997, The Tribunes were reestablished and are comprised of Mike Cuomo, Shelly Wengrovsky, Les Levine, Pete DeBenedetto and Hutch. A true "Super Group", each member has also been part of several top oldies acts performing throughout the U.S. and abroad. Shelly is a long time member of Platinum Recording Artists Cathy Jean & The Roommates. Mike and Pete were members of The Teenchords. Les and Shelly are members of the fabulous Del-Vikings. Hutch and Pete were members of the fantastic
acappella group, The Encounters.

The Tribunes are renowned for their authentic New York bred street-corner harmonies that are treasured by their audiences. The group boasts five lead singers to add to their versatility. Their energetic shows evoke emotions ranging from sheer excitement to feelings of pure nostalgia with their genuine renditions of the classic songs of the era. While catering to music lovers of all ages, the group encourages audience participation, and will include a contest with prizes awarded as part of the show, upon request. The Tribunes perform regularly across the United States and abroad and have shared the stage with virtually all of the oldies artists and groups performing today, to include The Harptones, The Drifters, Johnny Maestro and the Brooklyn Bridge, The Chantels, The Crystals, The Tokens, The Platters and many more.

INCREDIBLE! I received so many compliments on the Tribunes from my guests. Everyone had an incredible time and the music was great. Their use of wireless mikes and them walking around singing to people sitting at tables made it very personal and very entertaining. I need to come up with another reason to hire them again. I would not even look any further but the TRIBUNES. Thank you so much, you made my daughter's party a lot of fun.

Shelly and the rest of the Tribunes were a real pleasure to work with and are seriously talented singers. We had them perform for my mothers 70th birthday party and they were certainly a highlight of the party. They transported us back to the 50's and 60's, singing tunes that my mom grew up on. They also really engaged the crowd which was fun. Overall, I couldn't recommends these gentlemen highly enough! Ben R.
