I recall seeing a film/video of Turk Murphy's band in which it showed
Just-about every kind of club/bar/restaurant with music I ever saw -
in my limited experience, and prior to 1970 - had a "dance floor",
however tiny. Many places had a "bandstand" - some, barely large-
enough for a solo accordionist. Furthermore, it was remarkable how
many places had a piano - in some cases, hidden-away until someone
asked for it. In the end, the pianos were sold to buy "disco lights".
