"Once it happened right on stage," Gus recalled with a broad grin. "We were playing at the Chicago Theater. 1 had been showing off backstage, practicing Clyde McCoy's 'Sugar Blues' which requires a lot of good lip. 1 guess 1 damaged my mouth then. A little while later, the lip really split and the blood was running down my chin like wine. Art gave me a disgusted hx)k and invited me to leave the bandstand." Gus described Kassel as "easy to get along with generally, but tough and demanding at times." In 1938. he promoted Gus to second trumpet. The following year Kassel reluctantly promoted him to the coveted first trumpet spot. "He was dubious," said Gus, "hut nnt about my ability. I was sort of a playboy then. I liked to stay up all night and have a good time. Art was afraid I'd poop myself out--and not show up for work. But 1 never disappointed him. I was always there on time." For many years Gus divided his time playing with Kassel and the bands of Garber, Kaye and George Hall and his Syncopators. He was also a song writer, teaming with Kassel to write several melodies. In the early 1950s he developed an unusual ailment which hampered his trumpet work. His lower front teelh became loose. That complication, plus the fact that his wife was weary of traveling with bands, prompted him to retire from music. He decided to go into the electrical contracting business in California. He started the G. Thompson Electrical Co. in Norwalk with one used truck. Fourteen years later it was such a booming success that Gus had 19 trucks and 106 employes. Wiring, fuse boxes and breakers weren't nearly as much fun as the biincl business. Gus sold his company in 1964 and organized a large hand which opened last year at the Golden West Ballroom. He also became the ballroom's musical director. The band includes two trombones, three trumpets, four saxophones, piano, bass and drums. Their music has a strong but smooth brass sound creating dance rhythms in the style of Kassel, Garber and Kaye. The music ranges from such oldies as "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles" and "Down by the 0-hi-o" to such new tunes as "Cab Driver," "Rosie" and "Thoroughly Modern Millie." Gus' band will conclude its current Golden West engagement Sunday night. It will return again in May, coordinating with owner Olin S. Thibideau's policy of changing orchestras more often during the year. Next week Jack Stern's 10-piece band will open for a four- week engagement. Stern, endorsed enthusiastically by Gus and his boss, has a sound they describe as "fresh, modern and stimulating." The ballroom now has dancing every night except Monday. The eight-piece Goldenaires band plays Tuesday through Thursday nights when admission is $1 (ladies are free.) Admission is $1.75 on Fridays and $2 on Saturdays. Guests who have dinner in the ballroom's plush restaurant are admitted free to the dance floor. Next week the Wilder Brothers, a riotous group of comic musicians, will return to the ballroom's new upstairs Gold Room night club. They'll appear Tuesday through Saturday nights for six weeks, playing for dancing as well as doing Las Vegas-type floor shows. The Gold Room has no cover or minimum charges. * * * WHERE TO FIND THEM: Reed Williams, formerly with the Freddy Martin and Tommy Dorsey orchestras, VARIETY OK SOUNDS Ex-Navy flier Ted Brown, who plays 10 different instruments, appears with his trio nightly in the Galaxy Skyroom, 900 N. Broadway, Santa Ana. Appearing with him are pianist Dick Post (right) and drummer-vocalist Burnic Waters. They do musical varieties ranging from new tunes to such old favorities as "Tiger Rag," "12th Street Rag" and "Orange Blossom Special." plays modern music as well as the dance tunes of the 1940s in the beautiful Hilltop Supper Club atop Signal Hill. Reed, who plays half a dozen saxes--mini-sized to jumbo models--is accompanied hy bassist Carl Green and pianist John Fitzer. All three sing ton--and very, very well. Nimble-fingered Jack Carr, organist-vocalist, enjoys doing all kinds of request numbers during his appearances Thursday through Saturday nights in the Pump Room at Santa Fe Bowl, 21SO Santa Fe Ave. He also delights the guests by making fresh popcorn for them in a popper plugged in near his Hammond. Louis Reed, lively and personable, offers organ concerts during the cocktail hour, 4:30 to 8:30 p.m., Tuesday through Saturdays at the Hawaiian, 4645 E. Pacific Coast Hwy. Polynesian floor shows, featuring fire dan- . cers, hula dancers, novelty dancers, comics and vocalists, are presented nightly except Monday. EXCELLENT CUISINE Piepored by Chef [rni.
