The "Original" Satelites were formed in the early Eighties, as a response to the over-blown music scene at the time. Scott and Tony just wanted to play simple, fun music that sounded good in a smaller setting. No big PA systems--just a vocal PA--no sound man--no roadies. The Satelites basically played Party Rock 50's and 60's music, while also covering music that fit well into the genre, like Punk Rock and early New Wave.
The members from left to right were, Tom "Tom" Pascucci, Tony "La Pizzeria" Siclari, Scott "Do Wop" Free, and Chris "Hardly DA" Dehmer.
