After Rosie O’Grady’s and Church Street Station closed several reunions were staged at a local sports bar in Casselberry owned by two of Rosie’s former can can girls – twins Holly and Dolly. This reunion was on April 4, 2004 in honor of Don Lord and his wife Jenny who were leaving Orlando.
The reunions were well attended and many of the original band members returned to the delight of fans.
Some of the folks you might recognize are Red Hot Mama Miss Ruth Crews, George Palmer on trombone, Bill Allred on trombone (original band leader and author of the famous waiters welcome), Warren Sauer on drums, and Don Lord (singing but who formerly played the coronet and flugelhorn). Don passed away several years ago and his obituary and photos are on EpochLegacies.org.
