Humming Brrrr

“On Jan. 27, 2021, water melted off of Tammy Shriver’s rooftop in Bangor, dripped onto the tree branches below, then refroze in the shape of a hummingbird.”

“A little bit of sunshine that day melted the hummingbird somewhat, transforming it into a different bird.”

In The Morning, The Mighty Marvelows (1968)
Formed in Chicago in the 1950s  as Little Satan & The Demons, later as The Mystics, the group landed a recording deal with ABC-Paramount in 1964 and became The Marvelows. They had little initial success (Billboard suspended its R&B listings in 1963) but scored with I Do in 1965. In 1968, to avoid being confused with The Marvellos, they became The Mighty Marvelows but disbanded the following year.
