Nut Rocker by B. Bumble and the Stingers was a UK number 1 hit on Thursday, May 17, 1962 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. "Nut Rocker" is an instrumental rock single recorded by American instrumental ensemble B. Bumble and the Stingers. It is a version of the march from Tchaikovsky's ballet The Nutcracker. 1962, Fowley secured the copyright to an arrangement of the march from Tchaikovsky's 1892 ballet The Nutcracker and took this to local entrepreneur and pianist H. B. Barnum. Barnum recorded it as by "Jack B. Nimble and the Quicks" on the small Del Rio label. However, when Rod Pierce of Rendezvous Records heard it, he convinced Fowley that his label could do a better version with their own band. A new recording was arranged, but on the day, Ernie Freeman, who had played piano on "Bumble Boogie", did not appear, apparently due to heavy partying the night before.
