Does anyone remember the Jerry Steinport Orchestra. Jerry played every Saturday night at the old Phil Oosterhouse Ballroom above Moore’s Hobby Shop across from Herpolsheimers on Division and Fulton. The band was comprised of students from many of the area high schools, and we received $6.00 for playing four hours. Afterwards, we would go to Hattems for Chicken In the Rough. Those were good days.
