The Blue Angels were a frat-rock style garage band from Hammond, forming originally as the Starlighters, but changed names due to the famed Joey and the Starlighters; they got their start as a polka band. They released three singles on Chicago label Cap Records, which was related to Cha Cha Records. They were a popular live act in the area for several years. They also released a 45 billed as Blue Angels with Little Boo on Carnival Records.
Changing their name was a good move then, but history has obscured them unexpectedly due to the popularity of the Blue Angels airshow, not to mention the other Blue Angels band which launched Cyndi Lauper.
