Minnesota, Country Music, and the scene around THE FLAME NIGHTCLUB

30 Sep

The Flame was located at 16th & Nicollet Ave, on the southern edge of Downtown Minneapolis. We’ve had a great discussion with Jan North of The North Sisters and The Rhythm Ranch Gals previously. Check it for some background on Jan. Here’s some more photos from that scene, maybe you can help me identify some of the folks?

    The first color photo scrolling down – “Appearing Nightly” – from Aug 64 – guy on right could be Texas Bill Strength- he looks like he could be Dale Strength’s father.

    My wife’s Father had the band Leon Boulanger and the Flame band that was the house band. That must been late 50’s early 60’s.
