April 21st, 1973 — This is the house band at the Peter Pan Ballroom on West Broadway which was one of the last ballrooms in Vancouver to offer dancing on Saturday nights for those who liked to waltz, fox trot, or rumba. Most of the people there were in their 60′s or older. At 10:30pm the dancing stopped for tea, coffee, cake and quartered sandwiches and a little over 15 minutes later the chairs and crockery were removed so the dancing could resume. The band is the Bob Burton Quartet with Bob Tipple on guitar, George Watson playing saxophone, and Bob Burton playing the accordion.
