    Biography :

    Frenchie Concepcion met a quartet who sang at local community centers in the East New York section of Brooklyn. The quartet took him in as their new lead singer, under the name "Frank Lopez." They practiced mostly standards  as well as songs they'd written themselves.


    One day they heard about an audition being held by Tommy Robinson, owner of Atlas records at a studio at 124th Street, between 7th and 8th Avenues, in Harlem. In mid-1957, the Travelers recorded "Lenora," a song Frenchie had written and the old Wrens song, "Betty Jean" who were released on Atlas in August. After being together for about two years, a couple of the guys went into the service and that was the end of the Travelers.
