Crazy Man


 Crazy Man

Native of Portland, Oregon via Coffeyville, Kansas, Chi Chi (Treece) started in the entertainement field as a calypso dancer, appearing in some of the better supper clubs in the U.S.A. and Canada.  The Entree record seems to be her only single.  She also sings one track on the Bill Beau Trio album  "Live At The Blueport Lounge" which was produced by Andy Belvin and Louis Webb and issued by Misty Records in 1965. Her career (as Chee-Chee or Chi-Chi at least) seems to have been closely associated with Bill Beau. They were managed by Personality Productions (Buck Ram).

Bill Beau (real name William Chisholm) died of a heart attack in 1997. Bill returned to his native Canada in 1992 after living and working as a jazz musician keyboards across the United States, primarily in California, for over 35 years.

Both sides of her Entree 45, her track from the Misty LP, and an unissued cover of Lavern Baker hit are included in this zipped file.

Melveen Leed - born Melveen Ku'uleipuanani Leed, "Da Tida", was born and raised on the island of Molokai. She attended Kilohana Elementary & Intermediate School,Molokai, Radford High School, Honolulu (1961 grad.), Honolulu Business College,and Maui Technical School, Kahului, Maui (1963). As far back as her early childhood she liked the art of music and especially to sing. As she developed her talent for vocalizing, there were many avenues for her to follow. The music native to her people and the islands was foremost, but also she liked to delve into jazz, country, and mainstream pop music. During the mid nineteen sixties, Leed was honored as Miss Molokai and at about the same time began her "long and winding road" as one of Hawaii's premier performers.
