                    The Cotton Club : October 15, 1955

                    The club/dance hall was actually in the city of Slaton, located in the Southeast part of Lubbock County about 15 miles outside of Lubbock on Highway 84.  It was owned and operated by Lubbock native Ralph Lowe and his family and according to the book Rockin Across Texas by Stanley Oberst, the club booked the best talent that waltzed through West Texas from Bob Wills to Harry James.

                    Ralph Lowe’s daughter, Pat, would go to the club after school and fix sandwiches for the night’s patrons. One time Elvis was entertaining her and they played Tic/Tac/Toe on one of the white tablecloths. Ralph, the owner got angry, had it washed, and then took .75 cents from Elvis’ check that night for the laundering.

                    She also would let Buddy HollyMac Davis and others slip in thru kitchen to see Elvis perform.
