The late Orville ‘Rocky’ Byron

Orville ‘Rocky’ Byron

26 August 1928 – 16 May 2013

Mangrove and Flamboyan Mas Band are sad to announce the passing of Byron ‘Rocky’ Orville following a battle with ill health.

Born in Trinidad Rocky was the consummate performer, travelling the world as a limbo dancer. He arrived in Newcastle in 1961 where he soon got a job with Tyne Tees Television as a singer. His involvement in television continued throughout his life with his appearance in numerous music videos. Rocky’s arrival in London gave him the opportunity to get involved in the UK’s carnival scene – first with Hackney United Carnival Club, and then with Mangrove, a place he considered ‘home’. In recent years Rocky has been working closely with Flamboyan Mas Band.  Rocky will be missed for his flamboyant style and lifetime dedication to his culture.
