  • Doo-wop at its finest.

    The del Vikings were that good. They had many hits during their tenure, but I have to say that they are one of my favorite bands of all time. I think Doo-Wop is a great genre of music. It has some really nice tunes and it has influenced Motown considerably. The Del Vikings were great because of the fact that they had managed to make their genre better. I think that they were very much a part of the music era of the 1950's and they have made some music history as well. Overall, they are a good group. Thank you.moreless
