Fly By Night Club
Mr. Whitekey’s and the Fly By Night Club started out in a building we owned on a five acre site on the shores of Lake Hood. When we decided to tear down the building to make room for the Clarion Hotel development project we purchased the building at 3300 Spenard Road which became Fly By Night Club’s home for the next twenty years.
The Fly By Night’s tiny stage featured acts like Elvin Bishop, Brownie McGhee, Queen Ida and the Bon Temps Zydeco Band, Ben Sidran, Dr. Demento, Jay McShan and Riders in the Sky.
The Fly By Night Club’s Mr. Whitekeys had a combination of business acumen, talent, and insight into the unique Alaskan outlook on the world.
