Rosie O’Grady’s Singing Waiters – postcard circa 1976

Rosie O'Grady's Singing Waiters

This post card features Rosie O’Grady’s Singing Waiters who, in addition to participating in the patriotic grand finale and performing the Rosie O’Grady’s welcome song before every show, would drop what they were doing and who they were serving and grab their trays to accentuate the grand entrance of Rosie’s Red Hot Mama Ruth Crews.

This photo was from Rosie’s heydays when there was “sawdust” on the floor like in the olden days and standing room only above and below with people lining the 2nd floor balcony and the filling the antique
benches pulled from an old train station. Rosie’s served alcoholic beverages but it was a place where folks from newborns to almost-gones could have a rousing good time.

In this photo you can see the brass fireman’s pole in the middle of the stage. Most of the band members would make their entrance each show by taking the fireman’s pole from the top floor. The can can girls also arrived via this mode of transport. If you look closely you can see the large mirror behind the west bar – painted with the names and likenesses of specialty drinks.

LISTEN to Rosie O’Grady’s Waiters’ Welcome

Words and music by Bill Allred. Permission granted.

We’d like to welcome everybody to Rosie O’Grady’s, the place where all the good times are!
You can forget about your taxes, the weather, the wars, and leave your other cares and woes outside our swinging doors.
Welcome everybody to Rosie O’Grady’s, come in and belly up to the bar.
And if you do, it won’t be long before you see why, we’re rated up there with the flag and mom’s apple pie!
Welcome everybody to Rosie O’Grady’s, the place where all the good times are!

Sung by Rosie O’Grady’s singing waiters, this was the first song performed each night, and every word was true!

Comments to “Church Street Station – Marketing”

  1. Sylvain Daly says:

    I use to go to Church Street Station quite often in the 80’s & 90’s and have great memories.
    When it closed, the quality of the Orlando night life ended, so I stopped going downtown, especially since Orlando is now all about hideous night clubs with rap music noise.
