Satin Highlight 1969

January 31, 2012

Band: The Satin Highlight
Year: 1969
Home: Chatham

Notes: The Satin Highlight, played their first gig new year’s eve 1969, and their last gig new year’s eve 1979.

 The original 1969-1971 members were: 
(left) Michael Houle – guitar
(front) Waide Holland – organ/vocals
(rear) Ron Culver – drums
(right) Fred Tremblay – bass.

The Satin Highlight were fortunate to have enjoyed popularity as a dance-band, covering southwestern Ontario for 10 years.  At their peak, they were booked every Friday and Saturday night for 2 years ahead.   What seemingly made their popularity was playing pop-rock cover songs (mostly played in lounge acts of the period) at dances.  Weekend dances at that time were as popular as going to movie shows. Generally, local dance-bands of the era either play Country or Big-band music.
