    Biography :

    The group was started in 1961 and made it's public debut at Lou Dean's "Night Train Dances", weekend dances and rock-and-roll shows which were held in Bayshore NY at the roller-rink, on friday and saturday nights, where in it's first year, was attended by close to 40,000 Long Island youths. Each week, in addition to top recording stars, the night train show introduced and featured many talented local singing groups and bands from the long island area. On January 26th 1964, when the night train audience voted for the first annual "Louie" awards for outstanding performance and popularity at the night train shows, the Tunisions placed first among the four award winners.

    There were only two records recorded which were of any significance. They were " The Street" and "Tom-Tom", recorded on the Seville record label. Shortly after recording these records, the group appeared on the then wildly popular TV rock program, "The Clay Cole Show", live from Palisades Amusement Park in New Jersey, to promote their record. Two other songs "The Time" and "If You Should Lose A Good Thing"  appear on the album "Night Train Special" under the name of "Terry & The Tunisions".
