Jimi Hendrix once played at a club in Murfreesboro!

From www.WGNSRadio.com, October 21, 2015

The legendary Jimi Hendrix once wandered into a small club in Murfreesboro and did what he did best, played the guitar.  The Eldorado Club, which was also known as Dance Land, was mainly attended by African Americans in the 1950’s and 60’s.  It was located on Asbury Road near the Stones River Battlefield.  It is now just a shell as the roof has fallen in.

75-Year old saxophonist Raymond Summerour remembers the day Hendrix walked in like it was yesterday (2min and 34sec)…

At the time, Hendrix was in the U.S. Army.  He was stationed in Clarksville, Tennessee and part of the 101st Airborne Division in 1962.
