The Tune Rockers

The Tune Rockers

BMHOF Class of 2012

The Tune Rockers: song "The Green Mosquito" was a huge hit in 1958 leading to an appearance on Dick Clark's American Bandstand and national recognition. Boyhood friends from Eggertsville, the Tune Rockers made it all the way to #42 on the Top 100 in 1958 with "The Green Mosquito".

They toured and played numerous local shows including a WKBW Party event as co-headliners with teen idol Fabian. Songwriting royalties, credits disputes and lack of money all contributed to the band imploding not long after.

True rock pioneers, the Tune Rockers were the first legitimate band to hit the charts who hailed from Buffalo.
