In 1958, a couple of enterprising high school boys in Raleigh, North Carolina answered the Soviet challenge of Sputnick by forming a band called The Satellites. They played for school dances and parties making as much as sixty-dollars for all of their efforts on a good night. The name didn't last long but the Rhythm and Blues music they chose to play is timeless and is as popular today as it was in the late fifties and early sixties. Over the years this music has been titled many different ways, originally pegged as Delta. Until the mid-fifties, very few Caucasian musicians played this style of music making THE EMBERS very unique in this genre of music.
