Vocalist Bob Harrington, bassist Clint Hierlihy, drummer Richard Patterson and guitarists Gary Comeau and Paul Huot formed the Esquires in 1962. This Canadian band (not the Chicago doo wop group of the same name and era) signed with Capitol Records of Canada and released "Atlantis" in 1963. Their biggest hit, "So Many Other Boys," appeared in 1964 with new vocalist Don Norman. Introducing the Esquires appeared the following year, but the band switched to Columbia until breaking up in 1967. A 25th-anniversary reunion in 1987 featured Norman, Comeau, Huot, Patterson and Brian Lewicki.
