SPECIAL THANKS TO ORIGINAL BASSIST JOHN TATA FOR PROVIDING THESE PHOTOS (AND COMING UP WITH THE NAME OF THE BAND!)
“Just for the record. Vic ran an ad in the Boston Phoenix for musician to play in a new Rockabilly band. I was working at the Phoenix pasting up ads and saw it before the paper was published. He already had a rhythm guitarist in Rink Gallant. I went to his house in Revere to audition and was blown away by his piano playing. Vic was a natural to do Jerry Lee and many others and I was a student of Elvis. We filled in tunes by the other greats of the era. We soon found Charlie who was a handball partner of Vic’s cousin and finally we found Chuck. The name is from an old Marlon Brando movie The Wild One. I had thought many years prior that it would be a good name for an authentic fifties band. Vic liked the idea of having Rockabilly in the title like the Memphis Rockabilly Band. So I took Black Rebels Motor Cycle Club (BRMC) and made it Boston Rockabilly Music Conspiracy and everybody liked it…enough. That’s the story, so let it be written.“
THESE PHOTOS SPAN THE YEARS 1979-1986, IN RANDOM ORDER. IN TIME, WE’LL BE LABELING THESE PICTURES WITH PERSONNEL AND GUESTS.
