Final Revisit of Silver Laughter’s Booking Calendar for December 1978

1978-December calendar

1978-December calendar

The month started off with the band finishing up a job on December 3 at The Sportspage which (I think) I now know was in Bloomington, MN since their flyer (thanks to Carl) mentions the Great Bear center!

The very next day we started a 6 night engagement at the Flame Room in Pierre (the locals pronounce it peer), SD. After a Sunday off, we then visited The Ranch and Company in Port Byron, IL which is near the Quad Cities so our “homies” could hear us! The calendar says we were in Madison SD on the 12th, but the card I published before this post says otherwise!

After playing 6 nights at The Ranch, we rolled on down the road to Milan (pronounced My-lan), IL for 5 nights at the Play-More. After that we had Christmas Eve and Christmas Day off before playing 5 nights at a place called Spade Coolie’s… I have no idea where that was. Maybe one of the upcoming newsletters will shed light on it. Anyway, we finished up the year playing a one night job at The Showboat Ballroom in Marshall, MN.  on New Year’s Eve.
