Anchorage, Alaska

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

Others ?

There was a small teen club in Anchorage, AK (early 60s) called 'The Royal Pad.'  I was in a band called, The Von  Essex who played there on weekends.

When the" Royal Pad" closed it was reopened under new ownership as the Cinnamon Cinder.
