South Philly native Jamil Overton, a former vocalist and sax player, recalls that Chester’s Fun Spot was where Grover Washington Jr. “built up his chops when he first got here from Buffalo” in 1967.

Washington had a regular gig playing Thursday to Sunday. Nate Murray  held it down Monday to Wednesday.
