1939-1953: Big Bands at the Dance Pavilion
This playlist covers many of the big bands and other acts that performed at the old Dance Pavilion that burned down in November 1953.
1954-1957: The New Patio Gardens
When the new Patio Gardens ballroom replaced the old Dance Pavilion, Lagoon had a renewed emphasis on hosting big names of the day.
1958-1965: Pop/Rock at the Patio Gardens
1966-1973: Final Years of the Patio Gardens
Towards the end of the ’60s, many of the popular bands became less and less in tune with Lagoon’s family-friendly focus and rock bands were phased out.
1974-1995: Gone Country / Old Bands Return
In the 1970s, Lagoon hosted lots of country western groups and in the ’80s, many older bands returned on their reunions tours. Country artists were often featured at the Village Green stage in Pioneer Village, but the Lagoon Stadium was also used for bigger shows.
This playlist includes most of the songs that are played on Bombora.
