From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Secrets were an American girl group from Cleveland, Ohio.

The group first performed under the name The Sonnets, named after the Sonnet piano. They were offered a local gig supporting local ensemble The Starfires (later The Outsiders), and at one of these performances, talent scout Redda Robbins offered them a contract.[1] The group then met with songwriters Johnny Madara and David White, members of The Spokesmen. Through their influence, the group was able to release a single on Mercury Records called "The Boy Next Door"; the song hit #18 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in December 1963.[2] Three more singles followed on Mercury, but none of them charted, and the group parted ways in 1965.

Members Patty Miller and Carole McGoldrick continued performing as The Memories for a year following the breakup. The group reunited in the early 1990s to play at their high school reunion.[1]
