Indeed you nailed it. If you ever get a chance to hear "Connie-O" by that group give it a listen. You would not believe it's the same guys.
It has always been rumored that Dion and the Belmonts sang as a acapella group in the Belmont firehouse quarters of E 88 and L 38. Well, put the rumor to rest! Yes indeed he did. Recently I placed a call to Dions publicist and he in turn got in touch with Dion, tonight he returned my call and said: Dion stated, "Yes he did, he loved singing in the firehouse" back in the late 50's. Get this, the publicist also mentioned Dion may be doing a publicity tour for an upcoming project and thought it might be a good idea to donate a plaque to the firefighters in the near future. Stay tuned!
