Dave “Baby” Cortez (born David Cortez Clowney in Detroit, Michigan)

Clowney made his first record in 1956 under his own name but it was not
until three years later that he scored a major success using the stage name
Dave "Baby" Cortez. His instrumental, "The Happy Organ", was the first pop/
rock hit to feature the electronic organ as lead instrument. The 45 rpm single
was the first instrumental No. 1 on Billboard magazine’s
Hot 100 chart.
