Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band

Recommended Posts

Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band was a big band/swing/disco band formed in Brooklyn New York. Their biggest hit was "Whispering" / "Cherchez La Femme" / "Se Si Bon," which hit number twenty-seven on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 1977. They topped the Hot Dance Club Play chart with "Cherchez La Femme" / "Sour and Sweet" / "I'll Play the Fool."

Band members Thomas "August Darnell" Browder and Andy Hernandez later formed Kid Creole & the Coconuts. Cory Daye provided the lead female voice in the group. Ms. Daye also had some chart success as a solo act with the singles "Pow Wow" and "Green Light."

They were sampled in a song by M.I.A. called "Sunshowers", and the song "Cherchez La Femme" was remade by Ghostface Killah in 2000 as "Cherchez La Ghost" on his Supreme Clientele album. Their song "Sunshower" was also remixed by Japanese recording artist Fantastic Plastic Machine.from Wikipedia

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
