Five Satins

The Five Satins are an American doo-wop group, best known for their 1956 million-selling song, "In the Still of the Night." The group, formed in New Haven, Connecticut, consisted of leader Fred Parris, Lou Peebles, Stanley Dortch, Ed Martin and Jim Freeman and Nat Mosley in 1954. With little success, the group reorganized, with Dortch and Peebles leaving, and new member Al Denby entering. The group then recorded "In the Still of the Night", a very big hit in the United States which was originally released as the B-side to the single, "The Jones Girl". In 2003, the Five Satins were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame.
