The stars of 1956

Here’s another one of those “All Star” lineups from the ’50s, I found. Here we have Carl Perkins and Cathy Carr perched at the top of a bill that included Eileen Rodgers, Big Maybelle, The Drifters, The Cleftones, G-Clefs, Otis Rush, Frankie Brunson and Jimmy Rushing on Nov. 4, 1956 at the Stambaugh Auditorium.

I have no idea what the Asian cartoon is supposed to represent.

    This same show played in Canton also at the Memorial Auditorium. The Canton Repository ran a picture of Carl with some of his teenage adoring fans behind him after the show. I have a photo copy of it somwhere in one of my boxes of old mags and pictures. Priceless. What a great show this must have been. The best in Rockabilly ,Rhythm and Blues and just good old rock and roll. Thanks for this post!!
