The Blackhawk opened its doors for the first time on December 27, 1920, and within a few years became nationally known for its dance orchestras through the syndicated radio show Live! From the Blackhawk! The actor and jazz singer Mel Torme, nicknamed the Velvet Frog, debuted there in 1929 at the tender age of four. Other celebrated musicians who played there include Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller as well as a young crooner named Perry Como. The Blackhawk closed down in August 1984.
