Nancy remembers: "I saw Maurice Chevalier at Lambertville on one of his "Farewell Tours" in the early 60s. Also saw (among many other bands) Paul Revere and the Raiders there. The bands would run up to the stage from a tunnel under a section of seats. When Paul Revere and his band ran offstage. someone leaned over the rail and grabbed one of their plumed tri-corner hats! Thanks for this great web site!"

Joe Hesse remembers: I was in the group "The Rockin Paramounts" from Buffalo New York. We came in second place in that event. It was one of the highlights of my younger life. Here is a picture of the band performing there. I can tell you some stories on that event. The guitar player (Bob Wilcox) and I still keep in touch. Here is a picture of us: Bob is playing guitar second from left and I am on bass far right.
