Gary Lewis & The Playboys Bio

Gary Lewis & the Playboys were a 60s era pop and rock group fronted by musician Gary Lewis, otherwise son of comedian Jerry Lewis. They are best known for their 1965 Billboard Hot 100 number-one single "This Diamond Ring." Known for an earnest, boy-next-door image similar to British invasion contemporaries such as Herman's Hermits and Gerry & the Pacemakers, the group folded in 1970, but a version later resumed touring and this still continues as of 2011, often playing for veteran's benefits.

The group auditioned for a job at Disneyland, without telling Disneyland employees about Lewis' celebrity father. They were able to do this because they were known then as Gary & the Playboys. They were hired on the spot, audiences at Disneyland quickly accepted them, and the Playboys were soon playing to a full house every night.
