Tom's Tavern

At 1511 East Fifth Street in the heart of East Dayton and owned by Tom Abney, Tom’s had bluegrass music every Friday and Saturday in the early 1970s. Larry Sparks played there as he was trying to get his solo career under way. Ralph Stanley was a frequent guest. In 1973, the house band was Mike Kelly, Bob Dooley, Wendy Miller, Estil Tuttle, and Tommy Boyd.
