Twin City Club enjoyed extra added attraction

“[1930s pop star Rudy Vallee] leaped from the stage of the Twin City Club in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, after he spied someone hitting on his girlfriend, administered a beating, and then climbed atop the bar to accept the crowd’s plaudits. Host R.J. Reynolds Jr., the tobacco scion, kept it out of the papers.”

— From “You Call It Madness: The Sensuous Song of the Croon” (2004) by Lenny Kaye
