The Chimes (later Lenny Cocco & the Chimes) were an American doo wop group from Brooklyn.

The group came together under the direction of lead singer Lenny Cocco in the mid-1950s. Their first single was a version of Tommy Dorsey’s “Once in a While”, released on Tag Records. The song became a hit in the U.S., peaking at #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1961. The follow-up single was “I’m in the Mood for Love”, a song from the 1930s. This hit #38 later that year. In 1962, they began recording as Lenny & the Chimes, and moved to Metro Records and then to Laurie Records in 1963. In 1964, they released the single “Two Times” on Vee-Jay, but broke up shortly after.

In subsequent decades they have re-formed for the doo-wop revival circuit, usually under the name Lenny Cocco and the Chimes.
