Curlee Dinkins

During the fifties Curlee Dinkins, along with Robert Byrd (Bobby Day), David Ford, and Willie Ray Rockwell, formed the original group, "The Hollywood Flames". The group toured with popular bands and artists like Johnny Otis, the Jeep Smith Band, B.B. King, Johnny Guitar Watson and many more. Riding on the coat tails of The Flames' smash hit, "Little Bitty Pretty One", they appeared on American Bandstand and many of the local television shows throughout the United States. When the group signed with the ‘Class Records’ label, the Flames received a new name (the Satellites) and Robert Byrd was given a new professional name (Bobby Day)

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
