    (January 27, 2017) We are sorry to report to SoulTrackers that the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has reported that Ronald "Bingo" Mundy of the legendary group The Marcels has died at age 76 of pneumonia ant Allegheny General Hospital.

    The Marcels were best known for the huge hit, "Blue Moon," a cut that still resonates today as a signature song of late 1950s and early 1960s rock and soul.

    The group was formed by a bunch of Allegheny High School friends in 1959, and was named the Marcels after a popular hair style. They hit paydirt with "Blue Moon" in 1961 and that began a string of hits that kept the group together for a few seasons, and led to various reunions over the years. Mundy spend most of his adult life as a bus driver in Allegheny.
