    Biography :

    Brent and the Spectres were a teen band from Chelmsford, Massachusetts in existence from 1962 - 1966. They were one of the earliest performing groups in the area, influencing many local bands to follow. They ran their own Friday night record hops and won several battle of the bands culminating in the finals at the old Boston Garden (now the TD Garden). They released one 45 on their own label, “Oh, Darlin’” b/w “Patricia”, the flip, but most popular side. These were both originals.


     The band comprised Brent Paul – vocals, sax, and blues harp; Ray Tuck – drums; Jeff Thompson – lead guitar; Harry Boisvert – rhythm guitar; and George Shepherd – bass. Brent and Ray are still (separately) performing regularly in the New England area, and remain close friends.
