Ron Dante (born Carmine Granito, August 22, 1945, Staten Island, New York) is an American singer, songwriter and record producer. Dante is best known as the lead vocalist for the cartoon group, The Archies, from 1968 to 1971. Dante's first album release under his own name, on Don Kirshner's label, was Ron Dante Brings You Up in 1970. In 1972, also under the supervision of Kirshner, Dante became lead vocalist for another cartoon group, The Chan Clan. In 1979, he recorded a disco album under the name Dante's Inferno, and in 1981 his second solo album Street Angel was released. From 1973 to 1981, Dante was the record producer for singer Barry Manilow.

Dante often sang background vocals on Manilow's recordings, including the single "Mandy." Dante also continued to record sporadically during those years; in 1975, with Manilow as the producer, Dante released a dance version of "Sugar, Sugar" as a single under his own name. In 1978, Dante produced the Tony Award winning play Ain't Misbehavin' on Broadway. During this same period, Dante, who was a Manhattan neighbor of George Plimpton, was invited to serve as the publisher of the Paris Review (1978-85).[1][2] Dante remains active as a singer, producer, and concert performer. His solo CD Favorites was released in 1999, and another CD, Saturday Night Blast, was issued in 2004.

The extended play California Weekend CD was released in 2006. Contrary to popular belief, the lead verses to the Archies' single, "Jingle Jangle" (portrayed as being sung by either Betty or Veronica) were not sung by a female vocalist. It was sung by Dante using a falsetto voice.[3] Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
