The band was called "The Canadian Rockets." Played together until February of 1959 and then changes were made. Paul left and was replaced by Billy Goguen ( lead electric guitar) and Sonny left and was replaced by Merv Howard (piano). This band became "The Lincolnaires". Other changes were to follow.
