Five Satins Return to New Haven for PBS


Parris, 81, now is retired. He assembled the band especially for the occasion. What little rehearsal they had essentially came during the sound check. And I'll tell ya what: He sounded GREAT! 

They "did the hit" - "In The Still of the Night." But there were others! They also performed  “To The Aisle” and two songs that originally were recorded by Parris’ previous group, The Scarlets: “Cry Baby” and “Dear One.”

As a grad of St. Bernadette's School, I had always thought the song was recorded in the auditorium - and it may have been, though the acoustics woulda been lousy; but on Friday they seemingly performed right on the altar!
