The Sunset Strip in Hollywood isn’t exactly a place where religious values have flourished, but in the 1970s, it was home to the nation’s first Christian nightclub.
The spot was called Right On, and it was described in an Aug 19, 1971, story in The Times. It had a neon sign and was “psychedelically decorated.” But beyond that, it probably didn’t have much in common with its Strip neighbors.
The clientele was “clean-cut, finely pressed, hair in place, mother’s dream, Orange County safe, and even bushy-tailed,” reporter Alan Cartnal wrote. There were families there — policemen with their wives, “a clean place” to take the kids so you can sit together and listen to “the Lord’s music,” as one housewife from West Covina put it.
The club’s star performer was Laara Lacy (yes, two A’s, according to the story), a woman who said she would give herself “totally to Jesus before every performance.”
If the nightclub doesn’t embody the stereotype of that era, Lacy’s quotes do.
“The church is you, man,” she said. “It isn’t rules. I can live whatever lifestyle I want.”
Read the whole story, which is laced with song lyrics, here.
