Gary Lewis & the Playboys were an American 1960s era pop and rock group, fronted by musician Gary Lewis, the son of comedian Jerry Lewis. They are best known for their 1965 Billboard Hot 100 number-one single "This Diamond Ring", which was the first of a string of hit singles they had in 1965 and 1966. The band had an earnest, boy-next-door image similar to British invasion contemporaries such as Herman's Hermits and Gerry and the Pacemakers.

Gary Lewis' remake of the Cascades' "Rhythm of the Rain" was his final chart hit and the title track of his second-to-last Liberty album. In his early years, Lewis' nasality and limited vocal ability led producer Snuff Garrett to lean heavily on background vocalists to shadow and support Lewis in his musical efforts, but most of the material on Rhythm of the Rain is in Lewis' range and doesn't require him to strain. The results are pleasing and the songs top-notch, from songwriters who include Sonny Curtis, Buzz Cason, and Lewis himself.

Gary Lewis and the Playboys were a pop/rock group fronted by musician Gary Lewis, son of comedian Jerry Lewis, which earned its most success as a 'swinging sixties' band. Releasing four gold albums as well as many hits, songs "Count Me In" and "This Diamond Ring" in particular continue to receive significant airplay. The group initially auditioned for a job at Disneyland, supposedly without telling Disneyland employees about Lewis' celebrity father.
