I loved the Palimino!
I remember going to the Palimino when Cliffe Stone managed it. I had so much fun going there on the talent nights to see Freddie Brown perform his country songs with the Palimino Riders Band. Another favorite entertainer of mine there was Marie Brown. She was also a very talented singer and entertainer. To bad the club closed down after Mr. Stone passed away.
