The Precisions

There are several different groups called The Precisions. Bosko Asanovic and I think we have identified all the different groups below. Please get in touch should you wish to add, or correct, anything. 

The Precisions (Los Angeles Group)


Highland 300 - Eight Reasons (Why I Love You) / Mama Told Me – 1962
Rayna 1001 - White Christmas / Brenda - ?

The Precisions (New York Group)

Golden Crest 571 - Cleopatra / Someone To Watch Over Me – 1962

The group was reformed in 1996 around one original member (Mike Pellegrino), and we are now one of the most popular 60's bands in the New York tri-state area. We have a web site that may be of interest to your readers. www.theprecisions.com

We had the name first but our manager changed it to the Palesades and then the Magics. You can check the about us page at www.themagics.com . We are still doing shows in the NE. I co wrote the song Sweet Dreams with one of the other guys who has since passed away. You can go to BMI.com and you will see my name as co writer.
