Tommy Kizziah and his West Coast Ramblers played at Division Street when it was owned by Charlie Ceciliani and his wife. He did a live radio show from the stage there on Saturday nights right after the Grand Ole Opry.

He died in 1989, but his memory lives on.  I invite everyone to visit his website at
