COMES TO V. B. A .
In keeping with his promise to
bring the best talent possible to
Portland, “ Charlie” Garrett has
done it again at the Voters Benefit
Association. Topping an already
brilliant array of fine entertainers
he has spared no expense in bring
ing to Portland qqe of the West
Coasts best Pianists, Don Ander
son. Many people here either know
or have heard of this ivory tickler
and know he is a piano player of
no mean ability. He has been rank
ed with the best of them, the great
“ Fats” Waller, Teddy
“ Father” Hines and others. As a
piano petter he really has some
thing on the ball. His first appear
ance at the Voters Benefit Asso
ciation will be Saturday night and
we will give odds that after Port
land hears this former son, there
will be standing room only.
Don’s piano playing ranks second
only to his lovely wife’s singing,
also part of the “ Show” at V. B.
She croons those soft sweet
numbers between the regular Floor
Shows. Just ask “ Sue” to sing your
favorite number and you are do to
hear it as you possibly never heard
it sung before.
Both “ Sue” and Don are here as
the result of a promise by Charlie
Garrett to give Portland a real
Night Club. To those who have not
seen it, take it from me, you are
missing out on something. A Night
Club with an authentic Eastern at
mosphere and the best to be found
in the Pacific Northwest.
