Hawkins began his career in Montgomery as a member (and eventually leader) of the 'Bama State Collegians. By the mid-'30s, the group's success led it to long term gigs at New York's Savoy Ballroom and Apollo Theater. By that time, the Collegians had become Erskine Hawkins and His Orchestra, and they began cutting records for RCA.
