NOTE:  Until recently most sources agreed The Avalons and The Clickettes were the same group.  The following sheds some light on the error.

Avalons (Bronx) are The Teen Clefs (ref Shirley Bryant) – Louella , ’58 (Dice 90)

(As/ a John Clemente youtube comment in 2018?, the lead singer on Louella is the younger brother of Shirley Bryant (of The Teen Clefs ’There Goes Sputnick/ Hiding My Tears (With A Smile).  Both The Teen Clefs and Avalons (Bronx), along with the Clickettes, recorded for the ’Dice’ label.)

 

Avalons (Bronx) may also be The Teen Clefs – You Broke Our Hearts, ’58 (Dice 91)

(It’s presently unconfirmed (Mar 13 2019) If this is the same Avalons or an unknown group of [Avalons (Bronx)].  The lead as [Johnnie Richardson] is also unconfirmed.  Writing credits for the title ‘You Broke Our Hearts’ is Johnnielouise Richardson.  An unreleased song of the same title, credited to Johnnie & Joe [Johnnie Louise Richardson, Joe Rivers] is a different song than the one issued on Dice 91.)
