SPECIAL THANKS TO ORIGINAL BASSIST JOHN TATA FOR PROVIDING THESE PHOTOS (AND COMING UP WITH THE  NAME OF THE BAND!)

 

John says:

 

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.
