n the spirit of rock ‘n roll Santers delivers. Canadian melodic hard rock band hailing from Toronto, Ontario. 

From the basements of suburban Toronto to international stages, Santers began with classically trained brothers Rick Santers (lead vocals, guitars, keys) and Mark Santers (drums and vocals) jamming in their basement. They soon joined forces with jazz influenced bassist Rick Lazaroff in 1979, and set their sights high. Their talents were first recognized when they won a contest sponsored by Toronto rock radio station Q107. Soon afterward, in 1981, their debut album Shot Down In Flames burst onto the international scene garnering numerous international releases. Santers kept increasing its momentum through a steady stream of hard rock gems including Mayday (EP 1982), Racing Time (1982), Guitar Alley (1984), Top Secrecy (1986/released 1998).

“Can’t Shake You” the video and single, received rotation on over 200 Rock Radio and TV stations across North America. Santers remake of Free’s classic “All Right Now” cracked the  CHUM Top 40 reaching lucky #13 in Toronto. Santers albums continue to be released in countries around the world. The demand for Santers on CD was first realized in Germany on 1st Shot and 2nd Shot in 1995 on Long Island Records. In 1998 Santers experienced another incredible resurgence with the release of SANTERS lV – The Box Set on Avex Records in Japan. This rare collection of original masters featured the band’s three full length studio albums plus unreleased bonus tracks. Also included was the band’s unreleased archived fourth album Top Secrecy. In 1999, Top Secrecy was also released in Germany on Point Music/AOR Heaven. Dandelion Records, the band’s record label released a limited edition of Cold Fusion – Best of in 2002.

The Santers concert calendar over the years has brought them through Canada, the U.S.A. and Europe. The band is renowned for its exciting, high energy live shows and their extensive touring over the years has led the way to headline performances. Santers has joined forces and performed concerts with other notable rock bands, Ozzy Ozbourne, Blue Oyster Cult, Rick Derringer, Triumph, Johnny Winter, Golden Earing, Ratt, Accept and Kim Mitchell.

With the release of “The Definitive Remasters Collection” the band’s recordings can now be heard in the very best possible audio fidelity. It’s SANTERS like you’ve never heard them before. The Definitive Remasters Collection is truly  a defining moment in the Santers legacy.
