    1962-11-XX Nashville, Club Del Morocco, TN

    [Day?] November 1962
    Nashville, Club Del Morocco, Jefferson St., Tennessee, USA

    The Kasuals moved to Nashville, changing their name to The King Kasuals – if they hadn’t done so already. There was already a, famous, established Nashville band The Casuals, “Nashvilles’s Own” they were famous for themselves - Nashville’s first popular, recording rock ‘n’ roll group - but most famous as the backing group to Brenda Lee for much of her career. Calling your band ‘The Casuals’ or even ‘The Kasuals’ in Nashville at that time would be like calling your band ‘The Beatles’ or ‘The Rolling Stones’ in Liverpool/London after they had become famous!

    Billy: “...at the Del Morocco they fired the band that was working there part time and hired us full time. The fellow who owned the club also owned Joyce’s House of Glamour [no connection. Ed.] and Jimi and I lived upstairs. We were there about a year or so.”

    Jimi: "Then we got in with a club owner, who seemed to like us a lot. He bought us some new gear. I had a Silvertone amp and the others got Fender Band Masters. But this guy took our money and he was sort of holding us back. The promoters were the strangest and the most crooked there (in Nashville). They used to come right up on to this makeshift stage while we were in the middle of a number, slip our money into our pockets and disappear. Then we'd find out afterwards that they'd only slipped us a couple of dollars instead of ten or fifteen. We used to have to sleep in a big housing estate they were building around there. No roofs and sometimes they hadn't put floors in yet [yeah, maybe, but not the house you were staying in ie UK publicity hype. Ed.]. That was wild! Nashville used to be a pretty funny scene, with all those slick managers trying to sign up hillbilly singers who'd never been in a big town before."
