The Country Live Show on DVDs - At Town Hall Party - by Bear Family

At Town Hall Party on DVDs by Bear Family Records

This series of DVDs offers unbelievable material by both legends and local heroes. Besides great music you get a perfect glimpse into the everyday pay-your-bills-fare of 1950s Country and Rock & Roll musicians. Making music here is casual, unpretentious and natural. Folks swap instruments like at a family gathering and granddad happened to film it just for the heck of it: innocent and edgy footage from the infancy of Rock 'n' Roll and television.

A little about ‘Town Hall Party’.....


'Town Hall Party' was California's largest country music barndance, running from early 1952 until early 1961. The show was broadcast every Saturday night from a theatre made up to look like an old barn in the Compton suburb of Los Angeles. Crowds numbering up to 2000 would fill the old Town Hall to see and hear the top country artists of the day. The first hour was broadcast live over KFI and reached a wider audience when NBC syndicated the show on radio.

The broadcast was extended to three hours when KTTV-TV televised the show.

Jay Stewart (who later hosted the TV quiz show 'Let's Make a Deal'), and Tex Ritter were the MCs and the house band featured a Who’s Who of West Coast country music, including Joe Maphis, Merle Travis, Skeets McDonald, Johnny Bond and Tommy Duncan.

Artists appearing on the 'Town Hall Party' show included The Collins Kids, Carl Perkins, Jim Reeves, Patsy Cline, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Wanda Jackson and Johnny Cash. The show was so popular that, in 1958, Columbia Records issued the 'Town Hall Party' album featuring various cast members.
