Wasn't it on south Oneida Street? Or was that the second location...it seems to me the original burned down in the 70s or early 80s. Good question! I'm going to ask some older people and find out!

Does anyone remember watching the Alvin Stychynski show on Sunday afternoons - live from the Cinderella Ball Room.

I am looking for any information and or pictures of the Nightingale
Ballroom circa the 1940's-1950's where the Big Bands did one night
stands traveling between the Twin Cities and Milwaukee-Chicago.
As high schoolers we were able to see all the Big Bands of the time-Tommy
Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Harry James, Les Brown, Ray Anthony and many
others. I don't know if it later became the Cinderella Ballroom, but if you
know about it's original location it may be that only the name was changed.

Not sure about the Nightingale's location but I remember my father Charlie Maloney talking about it back when he owned and operated the Cinderella. Cinderella Ballroom had many of the the big bands you list here and more. It was located on S. Oneida Street just south of Calumet. The Cinderella was built in 1925 and remained in operation until late 1981 as a ballroom. It was run for a couple years after that by the Drum and Bugle Corps as a bingo hall I believe. Charlie Maloney passed away in late 1981 and that was the end of music at Cinderella. The ballroom was demolished around 1985.

In 1958 or '59, when I was a freshman at St. Mary's HS, I saw Johnny Cash at Charley Maloney's Cinderella Ballroom. To this date, it was one of the best shows I have ever seen.

My mother grew up on Murray Avenue just east of Oneida St. At the time of her wedding you could see the Cinderella across the empty lots between her house and the Cinderella. The dance hall is seen in some of the wedding photos.

The Nightingale is where my parents had their evening wedding dance. I understand that the ballroom was on Hwy 96 near McCarty's Crossing in the Kaukauna area. Tiny Hill and his orchestra were playing that night at the Nightingale. I'm also looking for a pic of the Nightingale. Just found a pic of Tiny Hill.

I remember meeting and talking to Charlie (facinating history) many years ago (you were there). I think somewhere I still have a picture of him (and Dodo) minding the ticket office of the Cinderella, probably at one of the last polka weekends the summer before he died.
