Cain's Ballroom is a historic music venue located in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It was built in 1924 and used as a garage until Madison W. "Daddy" Cain bought the space in 1930 and turned it into a dance academy. Bob Willis and the Texas Playboys used the space as the site of their first radio broadcast and played the venue often. Performers such as Hank Williams, Tex Ritter, Kay Star, and many others have graced the Cain's Ballroom's stage. After falling into disrepair, Cain's Ballroom was renovated and reopened in 1976 with a concert performance by Elvin Bishop.
