I am trying to find out who performed at Gene Autry's Sahara Inn in Schiller Park the night of September 16th, 1963 when it was mysteriously bombed.

According to Will Leonard's Tribune column of Sept 15,'63, Connee Boswell was "held over" at Gene Autry's Saharah Inn until the 29th.

I do not have that information, but my fathers company Campione Construction Company Inc, built the Sahara and repaired it after the bombing.

Was the Sahara bombed only once? I remember passing it by in the car and all the louver glass windows were blown out in the walkway. I don't recall if I was old enough to drive or if I was with my father driving past in the car on Mannheim road. If I was old enough to drive then it would be in 1966 or later.

Bombings also occurred in 1965 in Franklin Park Illinois at the Savings and Loan turret at the corners of Scott and Grand (now the mental health center). This location was bombed at least twice.

Was it Gene Autry's or Manny Skar's Sahara in 1963? I think it was Skar's.

This really doesn't really help. Vic Damone appeared at the Sahara Inn on December 27, 1962.
