Located in Battle Creek at the site where the Hi-Lo Club used to stand this nightclub's house band featured Charles Westover a.k.a. Del Shannon and keyboard player, Max Crook. Hi-Lo is where they first played Runaway which then became famous 'round the world in 1961. Come on now, we know you want to sing along..."As I walk along I wonder oh what went wrong...."
