They were recently asked to tour with Electric Six, but you can't pay 20 members out of an opening act's share. In previous tours, the band would easily spend $2000 per day, and the debts piled up (totaling some $35,000 to a cast of attorneys, management, and others). So as Bang Camaro shift from a band to a brand, with occasional gigs and video-game tie-ins and other merchandise opportunities, the music carries on through other avenues. Bennett just recorded a guitar solo for an R&B record from New England Patriot Tully Banta-Cain (no kidding), and Necochea joined classic-rock heroes Township earlier this year. The singers are sprinkled throughout the local scene, in bands like the Fatal Flaw, BrownBoot, and Auto Interiors, just as they were when it all began.
"Bang Camaro was put together to have fun and party with my friends," Necochea sums up. "We got to do a lot of things, and I'm proud of our achievements. I don't have any regrets."
