NOW AVAILABLE ON FOWL PLAYERS RADIO!!! www.fowlplayersradio.com
We welcome Mike Tramonte!! Mike and his family were owners of Washington DC's "The Bayou" from 1953 until 1980. He tells us about how the club evolved from being a Dixieland Jazz band club in the 1950's to a rock and roll club in the 1960's and beyond! 1964 is the year the Bayou changed to rock and roll and had many house bands, including the Telstars, Innocent Color, Sinbad, The Nighthawks, Cherry Smash. Later they moved on to rotating weekly with bands such as DC Star, Face Dancer, who played 6 nights per week, 6 sets per night! Mike shares other great stories about his very innovative house production crew, and national acts such as Judas Priest and Foreigner. Also- Mike's mother kicks Mickey Mantle out of the Bayou, and will The Runaways PLEASE show up????
Special thanks to Scott McGinn!!!
