Biography

Active: 1950s-1960s
Country Of origin: United States of America

With her gutsy, no-holds-barred delivery, Margie Day (born Margaret Hoffler) emerged as a solid R&B vocalist of the 1950s. As lead singer for the Griffin Brothers Orchestra, Day twice reached the R&B Top Ten between 1950 and 1951, lending her boisterous voice to "Street-Walkin' Daddy" and the Willie Dixon-penned "Little Red Rooster." Inspired by her success, she left the Griffin Brothers Orchestra to perform briefly with Paul Williams' band. By the end of 1952, she had moved on to the Floyd Dixon Combo, with whom she toured throughout the Midwest. Announcing her retirement in 1964, Day returned to her hometown of Norfolk, Virginia. Encouraged to return to performing, she joined the Dick Morgan Trio in the late '60s, and recorded an album of jazz standards. Her return to music was short. She left music permanently in 1969 due to a serious illness. ~ Craig Harris~ Rovi
