We are proud of the buzz going around town regarding the Halos:
It is very difficult to jam 50 years of history into a few sentences, but here goes. The current group actually had three origins. The first was on the street corners of the North Side of Pittsburgh, where Johnny and Bubba grew up singing a cappella with some of their childhood friends. The second was in Al's bedroom, where he and Ricky practiced guitars together. And the third was in Sewickley, where Pinky played guitar for a group called The Runaways. Three different bands, three different cultures, three different ideas, three different styles of music … but all with something in common. That commonality was the future meeting and lifelong friendship of what was soon to be Johnny Angel and the Halos. For a more complete history, see our Heavenly History page.
