I don't know where Lawrence Welk played, but the hotels along Michigan
Avenue were:
The Pick Congress, the Blackstone, The Stevens (now the
Hilton). If it were in a hotel
on Michigan Avenue, my guess would be the Stevens,
one of the largest hotels in the
world at the time.

My 85 year old dad asked me to find the name of a hotel where he use to take
my mom to dance to Lawrence Welk's Band. He said it was on Michigan Ave.
Does anyone know what hotel that would be? I searched on and could
only find the Trianon Ballroom in the forties. Was that in a hotel? Thanks for
your help!
