Roy Hammond, aka "Roy-C", got his start back in 1958. He sang in a vocal group called The Genies and scored a minor hit with "Who's That Knocking" (#72 pop). He lead a vocal group called Mark 4. He had huge hit with "Shotgun Wedding" (#14 R & B) and released his first album in 1966, "That Shotgun Wedding Man". He's been on labels including Smash, Black Hawk, Shout, Alaga, Mercury, and 3 Gems. He even recorded a single called "I Want To Marry You" as "Little Frankie". In 1973 Roy tasted some more commercial success when his mercury album "Sex & Soul" charted at #56 (R & B) and the follow up "Something Nice" spawned three minor hit singles. In the early 80s he started his own label, Three Grems, and began releasing albums for the label. He enjoys a faithful following in the South.
