Dion & The Belmonts


Oh, well, I roam from town to town
I go through life without a care
And I'm as happy as a clown
A-with my two fists of iron, but I'm going nowhere

Dion & The Belmonts, 'The Wanderer'

Dion and the Belmonts were a leading American vocal group of the late 1950s. All members were from the Bronx, New York City. The group formed when Dion DiMucci, lead singer, joined The Belmonts – Carlo Mastrangelo, bass-baritone, Fred Milano, second tenor, and Angelo D’Aleo, first tenor, in late 1957. The name The Belmonts was derived from the fact that two of the four singers lived on Belmont Avenue in the Bronx, and the other two lived near Belmont Avenue.
