Big Band Hall of Fame

On February 4th, 1998, Dolly Dawn was inducted into the Big Band Hall of Fame. The gala ball took place at the historic Mar-a-lago club in Palm Beach, Florida. The guests were surprised when Dolly treated them to a thrilling impromptu rendition of "Exactly Like You." With Ms. Dawn was longtime friend, Anthony Muto, who also designed her dress for the affair.
