Should auld acquaintance be forgot...here's where you can spend New Year's Eve 1944, at a "Gala" party featuring Maxine King and her All-Girl Band. "All-Girl" was not necessarily a novelty, but a necessity during wartime when your male trumpet player has been drafted.
With a cover charge from $1.50 to $ 3.50, and dancing until 4:00 a.m., along with six (count 'em, six!) New York stage acts, you can't beat this evening the Valley Arena Gardens in Holyoke, Massachusetts.
But remember that gas rationing, and raise a glass to the new year of 1945, when hopefully, the world might be at peace. Just like they wished for last year.
