a book called That Toddlin' Town By Charles A. Sengstock mentions Lawrence Welk at the Trianon and the North Side Ballroom. He said LW played at the Trianon so often his band almost became a house band. The book has some other interesting information on ballrooms in Chicago.



I also saw this on another website, someone recalling childhood memories and mentioning the Aragon (Lawrence Welk), at Lawrence Avenue and Broadway on the north side.
