Mentioned in “Louisiana Fiddlers” by Ron Yule and Bill Burge: Country fiddler Bob Henderson played there with Matt and Smiley Bennett in 1951. The club was on Highway 1.

From “In the early 1950s, Herman on guitar and his brother who had taken up fiddle began playing country music shows at theaters and schools. Gradually, the band grew to an eight-piece band known as the Louisiana Ramblers and played area clubs such as Club 20 on Highway 1.”

  1. What is located on the. Club 20 site now? Was it once called the Plantation Club? If so, was that before or after it was called Club 20? Do you have an address?
