Margaret Hoeffler
Profile:
Margaret Hoeffler of Norfolk, Virginia, became a top flight Rhythm & Blues vocalist known as Margie Day by the late nineteen forties. She joined the Griffin Brothers Orchestra as female vocalist in 1950 and immediately hit the charts with the boisterous tune "Street Walking Daddy". In January of 1951 with Day's record now hitting the charts on the West Coast, Dot Records releases the follow up with Margie Day doing vocals on Willie Dixon's blues tune "Little Red Rooster" with "Blues All Alone". Early in 1952 Margie records "I'm Gonna Jump In The River" and "Stormy Night" on Dot # 1104 with the Griffin Brothers Combo. By September Margie Day had decided to part company with the Griffin Brothers Band. She then signed on as vocalist with Floyd Dixon & His Combo. Late in the year Day recorded her first record for Dot as a solo performer - "Midnight" and "My Story" on DOT 1144. In 1953 Day continues as featured vocalist with Floyd Dixon's combo. They appear with DJ Hal Jackson for a weekend performance in Washington, D.C.
In early September Margie Day ends her long association with Dot Records and signs with Decca. In October Decca Records takes out ads in the music trade press pushing their commitment in the R & B field. One of their featured records is the new release by Margie Day - "Snatching It Back" and "Do I Look Like A Fool To You" on # 28872. In October, Day with Paul Williams appears at a big show at the Mosque Theater in Newark, NJ along with Fats Domino, Amos Milburn, and Ruth Brown. In the spring of 1954 Margie Day, the Paul Williams band, Amos Milburn, and Charles Brown, set off on a series of one nighters in Texas and the Southwest. Early in 1955 Decca releases "Old Time Lovin" and "I Like What You're Doing". In early 1956 after time out for motherhood, Margie Day tours with The Turbans, Guitar Slim, and Roy Gaines, in a show produced by Joel Turnero. During the spring Day left Decca Records and signed on with Syd Nathan in Cincinnati for King-Federal-DeLuxe. Her first record was on DeLuxe # 6096 - "Something Told Me" and "Dumplin Dumplin".
Margie Day after a turn with Legrand Records in Norfolk, Virginia, retired from the music business after more than a decade. She returned briefly in the late 1960s singing in a modern jazz vocal style, but soon retired again as she was beset by health problems.
