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.
