Throughout the sixties THE TOKENS wrote, produced and recorded some of music's most well known songs. Besides their smash recording of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," they also had hits with "Tonight I Fell in Love," "I Hear Trumpets Blow," and "Portrait of My Love."
Successfully transitioning to the other side of the recording booth they produced The Chiffons ("He's So Fine" & "One Fine Day"), The Happenings ("See You In September" & "I Got Rhythm"), and Tony Orlando & Dawn ("Candida," "Knock Three Times" & "Tie A Yellow Ribbon").
THE TOKENS were also the first group to play their own instrument tracks for recording sessions.
In 1998 THE TOKENS became the first and only group to sing the National Anthem in all major league ballparks in one season, an accomplishment that landed them into the Guinness Book of World Records. They have been inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame and the Long Island Music Hall of Fame.
Following the loss of both Mitch Margo in 2017 and his brother Phil Margo in 2021, Phil's son, Noah, felt it paramount to continue to celebrate the great music created by his father and his uncle. With this new configuration Noah honors their legacy while keeping it in the family.
