Winston Francis started his career in 1950-1951 as the entertainer “Cobra Boy.” At age seven, he successfully mimicked the Trinidadian contortionist Cobra Man to earn the Cobra nickname by which he is still known. Some years later, he worked as a ballad singer and member of The Sheridans. He first advanced to recorded music with producer Coxson Dodd on the trademark album “Mr. Fix-It” in 1969. This recording is where Francis earned his second pet name, Mr. Fix-It.
