Mike's South Pacific
From April 8-14, 1957 the club hosted singer Bobby Darin, then a little-known recording artist for Decca Records, which wanted him to mimic Elvis Presley's style. While in town, Darin borrowed money from local radio deejays and rented studio time to record four tracks to pitch to other labels. The demos landed him a contract with Atco Records, where he recorded his first hit, "Splish, Splash".
