Northwest Dance Venues

McChord Air Force Base
Noncommissioned Officers Club
Tacoma, Washington

Some of the bands that performed at this place during those great years of NW music were:

Daze of The Week
Happy Daze Band
The Sonics
The Wailers

Others ?

This was one of the very best venues.  It had stag bar, very large main ballroom with a stainless steel dance floor, and disco ball. Then for the hipsters, there was the "funk" dance room with DJ.

We played the ballroom, and we always delighted to see management opening additional accordian walls to yet larger space.  Just trying to keep a dinner crowd once, we had the crowd laughing when we dressed their MC/Officer in dress materials while he was trying to maintain his speech. He was a good guy about it.
