Let your mind drift back to the 60's. You're cruising in your car with the windows down, the radio up and your favorite girl (or guy!) by your side hoping to hear your favorite song. You might head to the local burger drive in or perhaps just park under the moonlit sky as the tunes played.


Memories.....that's what baby boomer rock n' roll is all about! We play a variety of songs from The Animals to The Yardbirds and we believe we have a little something for everyone.

So come join us for a night of music as we take a ride into the past via...... Claremont Drive!

History of the Band

The "band" was started about 20 Years ago by Ron Mc Kee.Al Konrath and John Carbonaro

We started playing in Ron's basement in Cicero Il. As the years went on we got together less and less. In September 2009 we received a call from a guy and asked if we were in need of a drummer. Well, not really because we only had this fantasy band we called The Dead and The Dying. However, we invited him over and things began to click.

The search was now on for a bass player. Enter Ted Pappas. We started to practice on a regular basis and began putting together a song list, but we needed one more piece to the puzzle. We needed a lead guitarist that would be open to our genre and vision.

In the meantime, if we were really going to do this, we realized we would have to change our name to something more suitable. We settled on the name CLAREMONT DRIVE with our slogan, Baby Boomer Rock and Roll.

In April of 2010 we found the lead guitarist we were looking for, Paul Kranz.  He worked very hard to catch up and learn the songs we already knew. Since then his imput and ability has brought us to a new level.

A major change took place in April 2011. We felt the need to change drummers.

We were very fortunate to find Jim Robinson to take over as our drummer. He has played for many years with several different bands. His enthusiasm and love for the music of our era comes shining through both at practice and on stage.

The rest of the story is the future!
