Curley Bridges (blues, rock)

Curley Wilson Bridges (February 7, 1934 – November 27, 2014) was an American electric blues, rock-and-roll, and rhythm-and-blues singer, pianist and songwriter.  In 1953, he and the trumpet player Frank Motley, Jr., formed the Motley Crew. Bridges performed with this group until 1966; he was the lead vocalist and played the piano and, on occasion, the trombone or drums.  In 1954, they recorded an upbeat version of the song "Hound Dog", which was renamed "New Hound Dog" and issued by Big Town Records. By 1966, the band had relocated to Toronto. Bridges left the group later that year. He recruited King Herbert and Frank Pelly from his former band, and they performed as the Rounders in Northern Ontario. In 1999, Bridges recorded his first solo album for the Electro-Fi Records label, Keys to the Blues. Bridges died in the Hospice Simcoe in Barrie, from cancer on November 27, 2014, aged 80.
