Angelo D’Aleo, Fred Milano, and Carlo Mastrangelo were all friends from the area around Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. They attended Roosevelt High School and hung out together. They began singing together and named themselves The Belmonts after the street on which Freddy Milano lived. The Belmonts, a “doo-wop” group, were formed in the Bronx, New York, in the 1950s.
Hits by The Belmonts (1958-1960) include “I Wonder Why”, “Teenager in Love”, and Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart’s “Where or When”.
In February 1959, after a performance in Clear Lake, Iowa, the Belmonts took a bus to the next show. The other performers on the tour took a charter plane that crashed that night killing Rock n Roll royalty -Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and Paul Sutera.
