According to the July 11, 1936 edition of The Beaver Daily Times, orchestra leader, George Williams held the all-time attendance record at the Virginia Gardens ballroom:

George Williams, noted WTAM (AM Radio, Cleveland, OH) orchestra leader, will bring his aggregation of musical stars to Rock Springs Park this Tuesday night, July 14th. Williams is well known in the valley, as he holds all time crowd attendance record at Rock Springs Park and several other valley ballrooms.

Williams features lovely Miss Thelma Walters, Guy Mc Comas, and Hal Lippincott. Guy Mc Comas has been heard on coast to coast radio network commercial programs.

Admission to the swing band dance was 40 cents. Other orchestras book for appearances at Rock Springs Park in 1936 were Charley James, Sammy Kaye, Tommy Tucker, George Luker and his 11 Arcadians and Ina Ray and her Melodears.
