I had a fellow in here attending a funeral by the name of Jim Sola. We got to talking & we looked up your site & I saw the ballroom link.
The info I have is in a closed-backed frame. The band posing in front of the ballroom is Vertigo, taken after it had closed down. It closed about 1970 and burned down May 17, 1975. Photo was from approximately 1974.
From left to right, the Vertigo members are Steve Cottet, Acey Watson, Mike Lacy, Bruce Meyer & Dave Butterfield. Steve Cottet works here on grounds at the cemetery. He did actually play at the ballroom, before he was of age!
The spelling of the ballroom was sometimes Playquato.
