1 9 5 8 - Bill Haley & his Comets / Johnny Ray

from 22 to 27 April 1958 at Teatro Paramount on Avenida Brigadeiro Luiz Antonio.

Bill Halley & his Comets from 22 to 27 April 1958.
In 1958 it was time for Bill Halley (left red arrow) & His Comets - the rock'n'roll sensation! Paulinho Machado de Carvalho (right red arrow) was instrumental in bringing big acts to Brazil. In 1959, Paulinho signed Nat King Cole who turned out to be the most sucessfull of all foreign acts who ever visited Brazil. 

29 June 1958 - Radio & TV Record present Giacomo Rondinella dubbed the 'most popular singer in Italy'... even if one never heard of it... 
Sally Blair from 9 to 15 September 1958; and on the cover of 'Jet' magazine on 23 July 1953

2 November 1958 - On Sunday, Johnnie Ray had 2 recitals. The opening show was more impressive than the foreign attraction himself:  Betinho & his combo, Sylvio Mazzucca & his big-band, multi-instrumentalist William Foruneaud, stand-up comedian Pagano Sobrinho, sassy & sexy Dircinha Costa, happy-go-lucky Gasolina, Neide Salgado, blonde Cinderela, Ellen de Lima, saxophonist Bolão & many others... Only Radio & TV Record could afford such a millionaire cast as that.
