About the Book
These five musicians burst upon the music scene in their hometown of Kenora, Ontario in 1962 and the band has yet to quit performing together after nearly 55 years despite numerous band member replacements. After three years of performing in Northwestern Ontario, two television appearances and a name change from 'The Tempests' to 'Satan & The D-Men,' the band relocated to Winnipeg, Manitoba. They rose to become one of the top 10 bands in the city out of over 150 performing groups there at the time due in large to their great music as well as their choreographed stage show.
Satan & The D-Men appeared at the "Cavalcade Of Stars" in Winnipeg, Portage La Prairie and Brandon, Manitoba with 'The Deverons,' 'The Jury' and 'The Shondels.'
After a disappointing last minute cancellation as opening act for 'The Rolling Stones' first Winnipeg appearance, they added well-known singer and television performer 'Lucille Emond' to their ranks and toured as back-up band for recording star 'Buddy Knox' during his sold-out performances in Northwestern Ontario and Manitoba.
They continue to perform under the same name, have two CD's to their credit and in 2015, opened the show in Kenora for the ever-popular 'Burton Cummings.'
As long as there is rock & roll, there will be Satan & The D-Men.
