My name is Chuck Peterson. I'm from Burien,Washington. In 1974 when I was 19, I moved to Vancouver and played in the House Band there for 9 months. It was rough but not as rough as the Smilin Buddah across the street. Hastings St. was where It was. Kinda like 1st Ave. in Seattle... a strip club turned cabaret. We played covers and worked 6 nights for 80 bucks a week. My hotel room was 13 dollars a week. Go Figure!

They have torn down most of the Kit Kat Klub building.  I found and photographed the above sign in the rubble.
