Night Moves

9765 St. Charles Rock Road

Owner: Tom Norris

formerly The Music Palace



This was the last few years of The Music Palace/Starlight Ballroom with a new owner and a facelift. But rock and roll was moving out of the area!


Above and below, The Younger Brothers take the BIG Night Moves stage!




Listen to a Radio spot for Night Moves:





Here's a Night Moves memory from Jim Davenport:

I saw the band,  ACTS,  open for,  JOHN KAY & STEPPENWOLF,  at Night Moves in January, 1981.  They were a decent cover band.  But the crowd was there that night for Steppenwolf and didn't appreciate the band's efforts.  In fact,  they booed ACTS off stage.  

Night Moves was a very cool club.  I also saw CANNED HEAT play there, as well as, SPIRIT.
