Who did you book to play at your prom?


Recommended Posts

The five school board members at Geronimo HS were also deacons at the First Baptist Church at Geronimo, OK.  That kinda ruled a prom.  My senior year was the first ever Jr-Sr Banquet.

We all went to the Student Union Building at Utah State University for a banquet and some dancing, then to the George Nelson Fieldhouse a half a block away and had a whole section of prime seats for The Kingston Trio.   That was January 19, 1959 and not the usual time of year for a prom, but the organizers pulled a rabbit out of the hat and got it done.

 

Some local group played for the dancing and dinner music, but I have no idea who it was. 

 

The whole thing started at 6:00 and we all for home by about midnight.

 

My date was Katherine "Rusty" Sargent, a redhead who could whip any guy on campus.

I didn't go to my prom, actually I couldn't. I had to go to summer school for one credit and they wouldn't let me attend! Oddly enough I flunked History class which was right after lunch and I almost never went! Weird because now I LOVE history!! Go figure!:blink:

My school was so small, it was a combined Jr-Sr prom to get enough people. No band, just a DJ. I went to four proms - two for my Jr-Sr and two for my GF's Jr-Sr.:D

 

A nice thing about our proms is that we held them at a resort about 50 miles from town. We would get the day off from school and spend it at the resort.

Don’t recall the name of the band, but members of the the band later played behind Charlie Daniels, J.J. Cale, Leon Russell, Tanya Tucker, and others.

It wasn't much of a big deal for me, Maybe for other at the time but it isn't now so i don't think you missed much.

Every kids back there drove their dad's car to prom it was a cool thing then.

Wonder what prom would look like today.

I don't even want to think about it.  Bad as reading the news.

Not really! We weren’t prom worthy.
 

I was a year ahead of Carol. Didn’t go to my prom. 
Took her to her senior prom the next year. But I had to take leave fromGermany to come back and do it. :wub:

Did not go to prom. Or any school dance or function.

I missed prom.  Strangely enough, I was in a band playing weddings, bar-mitzvahs, corporate events, etc.  We didn't play proms, not enough money in it.  I was working that night.

I was lucky. The place I worked was a very popular place. 

Most paid to get in and hang out.

I got paid to be there.

I was working at one of the best restaurants in town that all the prom goers went to. I'll bet my after work party was better than their after prom party.
