Cory Daye

"Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band"



A true native New Yorker and one of the founding members of  Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band, vocalist Cory Daye became one of the most distinctive voices of the disco era.  A new sound was born by fusing jazz, rhythm & blues, swing soul, latin, big band and disco beats.


Cory’s soft, endearing and unique vocals were what made an impression on the everlasting timeless classics like “Cherchez La Femme”, “I'll Play the Fool”, Hard Times” and  “Sour and Sweet.” “Cherchez La Femme” was a huge hit single and number one on the Disco charts in 1976.  DBOSB was managed by the now pop mogul icon Tommy Mottola.  Their debut album went Gold, and in 1977, the band was nominated for a Grammy Award for “Best New Artist Of 1976.” 


In 1979 Cory released her first solo album, Cory And Me, on Mottola’s New York International Records label. The album included the chart topping classics like "Green Light", "Pow Wow" and the international hit “A Wiggle And A Giggle.”


Cory was also a featured vocalist and part of the group Kid Creole & The Coconuts, which kept her busy recording and traveling worldwide.  In 1993 Cory also appeared in the film Lambada: The Forbidden Dance alongside Kid Creole performing two songs including the American version of Lambada originally by Kaoma. 


Today, Cory still continues to wow the crowds and struts her stuff onstage as a solo performer at various venues and concert halls.


In 2013 Cory made her off-broadway debut in Anthony Wilkinson’s hilarious comedy hit “My Big Gay Italian Wedding” at the St. Luke’s Theatre, New York City to a sold out performance.


October 2014 Cory was honored along with others at the G.E.M.A. Golden Mic Awards in Wilmington, DE for her contribution to Disco Music of that era in a 2 day event with a Live show "The Golden Decade of Disco Divas".

July 4th 2015 Cory was asked to partake in a huge concert - The Chosen Few "25th Anniversary"  show/event in Chicago, IL. Cory performed along with Evelyn Champagne King, Stephanie Mills and was also honored with a lifetime acheivment ward award.  The event was a history making show that year with an estimated 5,000 - 7,000 attendees.


June 2016 Cory celebrated to 40th Anniversary release of the the smash hit single: "Cherchez La Femme" and the self tiled LP "Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band" with several performances and interviews.

Cory says...

“Even though I sang music that fused elements of the past with contemporary beats, I never once thought we were before our time; but with all the fans, who still listen to the albums we created, I now think differently. We were a band that endured the test of time!”
