The Tridels from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania performed and recorded for nine years, from 1962-1971. The original members were Mike Bove’, Larry Chassen and Marc Snader. The release of the trio’s first single, “Land of Love” for San-Dee Records in 1964 was a WIBG Sureshot and Cash Box Magazine pick making waves on the East Coast. When the record broke in the Midwest, the group joined the "Caravan of Stars" tour in the summer of 1964 and toured four states and Canada promoting the release. The Beatles explosion in 1964 dampened prospects for most American releases that year, but the Tridels continued to perform until 1965, when Larry was drafted and Helene Goldberg joined the group. The trio recorded over 35 original compositions, and wrote and recorded for commercials and two documentary films. The Tridels disbanded in 1971.
The original members reunited in 2010 and released a Double CD Anthology of their music and memories of the 1960s, titled Back To Life. The current Tridels include Mike (vocals), Marc (vocals/rhythm guitar), new band members Erich Berg (vocals/percussion), Art Wilson (vocals/bass/lead guitar), Ian Alexander (vocals/studio recordist), and Doug Fearn (studio recordist). The Tridels went back into the studio in late 2012 to record a group of new compositions for their next album due in 2013.
