The first group consisted of Hauser, Erin Dickins, Marty Nelson, Pat Rosalia, and Gene Pistilli. The second version of the group, formed in 1972, consisted of Hauser, Alan Paul, Janis Siegel, and Laurel Mass . In 1979, Mass left the group after being badly injured in a car accident and was replaced by Cheryl Bentyne.
