Throghout the 1920s to the '60s, numerous legendary entertainers drew thousands of people to such memorable venues as the Brant Inn in Burlington, Dunn's Pavilion in Bala, The Palais Royale in Toronto, the Stork Club at Port Stanley, to the Club Commodore in Belleville and the Top Hat Pavilion in Noth Bay - and the hundreds of the other popular dance venues right across Ontario.
