Bruce Davis Quintet At The Hacienda

The Party's Over
Bruce Davis Quintet At The Hacienda
Davista Records - Fresno, California

From the back cover: March 25, 1954 was the opening night for the Hacienda Motel in Fresno, Calif. On the bandstand was the Bruce Davis Quintet – up form Los Angeles for a 4 week engagement with a 4 week option. Over ten years later the group is still there. And, what's more, in addition to his position as orchestra leader, Bruce Davis has subsequently become entertainment director, member of the board of directors, and now general manage of the Fresno Hacienda. Quite a record in itself!

Group members include Bruce Davis, Frank Nelson, Doug Nye, John Bibb and Howard Perterson

  1. John Bibb was my uncle! He's the guy on the ladder on the right, at the top, holding the "T" on the sign. If I'm not mistaken, he arranged the cover of THE PARTY'S OVER.
