Northwest Dance Venues

Centralia, Washington

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

The Corvettes
The Frantics
The Renegades
The Sonics
The Stingrays

Others ??

Magoo’s was a teen club in the early 60s, located above Reda Hardware right across from the city park in downtown Centralia.  Magoo’s even managed to book the Frantics and the Sonics a time or two, I believe, despite a really small budget for entertainment and a dance floor just big enough for about 100 people.
