AN UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE VOCALIST OPENS THE FESTIVITIES

“By the time he started appearing on national television shows, the Wayne Cochran that thrilled throngs in Southern pits and Midwest holes was all show, the voice practically gone, so he ratcheted up the live shows with as much gloss as he could. Significant singles included a remake of Bob & Earl’s “Harlem Shuffle,” which bubbled onto the pop singles chart, and “Sleepless Nights.” Wayne Cochran & the C. C. Riders had a Miami reunion in Miami on July 26, and on August 1, 2001 in Hollywood, FL. The C. C. Riders were many, and even included renown jazz bassist Jaco Pastorius at one time. Cochran became a born-again Christian and pastor; he started a ministry in 1981.” ~ Andrew Hamilton
