Some of the bands that this place during those great years of NW music were:
I came up to Tacoma in 1971. My sister and Brother-in-law were my partners. We took a 5000 sq. foot building and created a Disco but, the Tacomans were not ready for dancing to records and requested bands and so I responded. We built a stage and bought a sound system and the rest is history.
I booked local black bands and bands from California. The LAND OF THE GIANTS also had a record shop inside called "NIKKI'S Records". I received my booking license from the AFM American Federation of Musicians Union which allowed me to book bands in the USA and Canada. I started producing concerts my first one was at The University of Puget Sound in the Gym (ed note: UPS Field House) with the Ohio Players, Black & White Affair and other groups. From that I have produced many Live and Television Standup comedian shows-Music Concerts and Stage Plays etc...
