Dyke & The Blazers

Support 88Nine And This Artist:

The Phoenix band Dyke & the Blazers picked up on the rhythms, bass and organ innovations of James Brown's band and released "Funky Broadway - Part I" in 1967, the first black dance single with the name "Funky" in the title. "Funky Broadway" was later covered by Wilson Pickett, resulting in a #1 R&B hit. Originally from Buffalo, New York, the band got stranded in Phoenix, Arizona while backing The O'Jays. Vocalist Arlester "Dyke" Christian was shot to death in 1971.
