Don't forget that the Ilford Palais also had a resident band that played cover versions. When they came on the dance floor would empty as we headed for the bar. The song Blueberry Hill comes to mind. Never liked the music the band played. Our mob went there on a Sunday night. Back in 1966 we used to go there on a Saturday afternoon with other 13/14 year olds. Good music without the band.
