Big hair, a big beat, and funky as all get out, Carleen Jean Butler was the drummer behind Carleen and the Groovers, a Charleston funk band that included her brother Clary, once a member of Wilson Picket's band, on trumpet. They released only two 45s before Carleen high tailed it to Germany, leaving Clary to pick up another drummer and change the name of the band. But those two 45s are whoppers. I've posted these before but it was six years ago, so they're buried back in there someplace. Regardless, you probably haven't heard them, I'm lazy tonight, and that adds up to a cheater post.
