Hi Ed

This was actually a magazine assignment. It was for Show Magazine and the assignment was to show the spirit of the Peppermint Lounge.

Besides Joey Dee, there was also Chubby Checker. I believe he was the one that actually sang the song.

Real nice shot. Wasn’t it “Joey Dee and the Star Lighters” that highlighted the Peppermint lounge? Their big hit at that time was “Peppermint Twist.” They also made a movie, and I think it was filmed inside the Peppermint Lounge, and I think the movie was called the “Peppermint Twist.”
