The Cinderella Ballroom, where Bix appeared in the Fall of 1924 with the Wolverines, became the Paul Whiteman Club in Feb 1927. According to Don Rayno, on opening night Feb 18, 1927, the audience consisted of 875 (!!!) patrons. Among them the King of Spain, Charlie Chaplin, W. K. Vanderbilt and Louis Cartier. Get a load of the price for opening night.
