April 11 & 18, 1951 – Suburbanite Economist (Chicago)

Wednesday, April 11, 1951 (p. 32)

Dan Terry is a name you may never have heard before now, but ere too many seasons you may recall having danced to the newest sensation of the nation. Dan has his band now at the Trianon, and that’s a break that started many big names to stardom, among them Eddy Howard, now at the Northside Aragon, Dick Jurgens, Teddy Phillips and others. Christine Martin, the blonde eyeful whose picture you saw here last week, is Terry’s vocalist.

Last Week for Dan Terry at The Trianon
“Music in the Mello Mood” Clicks in First Run and Will Return Later

Four more nights remain of Dan Terry and his orchestra with their “Music in the Mello Mood” at the Trianon Ballroom. Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday will find the tooter and his band there, then they depart for a swing around the Eastern circuit, to come back to Chicago and the William Karzas ballrooms in early Fall. Dan first played piano and violin, then switched to the horn, playing in “name” bands for Hoagy Charmichael, Larry Clinton and Ted Weems. Christine Martin is the featured soloist. Tex Cromer will open at Trianon next Tuesday.
