In June of 1978 Benny Goodman was here in Sacramento to visit his daughter Rachel who lives here.

Bill Borcher, the original force behind the Sacramento Jubilee, asked Benny if he would appear as a guest artist at the next Jubilee, which would have been in May, 1979.

Benny said to contact Muriel Zuckerman, his manager.

After many attempts to contact the lady, the answer was that Benny would perform one concert in a separate concert site for $25,000.

Needless to say, it never happened.
