The Baton Show Lounge, 436 N. Clark St., celebrated their 43rd anniversary last week with a brand new show from the Top of the Nation review, featuring such longtime Baton favorites as Chilli Pepper, Ginger Grant, Mimi Marks, Sheri Payne, Maya Douglas, Victoria La Paige, Sasha Kolby and special guest Tajma Hall.

Owner Jim Flint took time out on stage to personally thank most everybody in the audience at this special debut performance, which was the first of three shows that night in the first of five consecutive nights celebrating this milestone.

It was announced during the show that performer Sheri Payne has been selected to take part in an upcoming Whitney Houston tribute performance at the Apollo Theater in Harlem.

Flint also promoted the biography out now about him, Jim Flint: The Boy From Peoria, written by Tracy Baim and Owen Keehnen.
