The Illusion

 The Illusion were an American hard rock band from Long Island, New York. They released three full-length albums in the U.S., the first of which was also issued in the United Kingdom. All three albums were produced by Jeff Barry.

From the ashes of earlier Long Island, NY bands like The Dell Sonics and The Creations, vocalist John Vinci, lead guitarist Richie Cerniglia, bassist Chuck Alder, multi-instrumentalist Mike Maniscalco and drummer Mike Riccidella came together in The '5' Illusions. While paying their dues on the local scene, they dropped the '5' and became popular enough to cut their first single, "My Party" for DynoVoice Records, composed and produced by label mate Mitch Ryder. With their reputation growing beyond the local scene, they were offered a contract by hit songwriter and producer Jeff Barry, who had started his own label, Steed Records. The label was also home to Andy Kim and Robin McNamara. The group had one major hit in the U.S. in 1969 with "Did You See Her Eyes", which peaked at number 32 on the Billboard charts and at number 1 in some places in New York, as well as three minor hits: "Together", "Let's Make Each Other Happy", and "How Does it Feel?".
