Hello all,

Following up leads on Jelly Roll Morton's music activities in South Bend, 
Indiana, I made contact with Jim Kashishian, who was on vacation in South 
Bend during December 2004.  Jim met up with fellow musician Don Boyer, who 
then made contact with John Kovach the librarian of Saint Mary's College, 
South Bend, Indiana.

John has searched through his library collection and has discovered several 
interesting pictorial adverts from local newspapers, which contain valuable 
information about previously unknown  appearances of Jelly Roll at the Tokio 
Gardens dance hall.  The building, which was located at N. Michigan and 
Marion streets, South Bend, Indiana is no longer standing due to urban 

I'd like to thank Don Boyer and Jim Kashishian for their help in gathering 
in the information for Jelly Roll's appearances in South Bend.
