A fixture of social activity in Chicago during the 1910's and 1920's located on the city's far West side Guyon's Paradise Ballroom opened in 1916 owned and operated by J. Louis Guyon.
Nestled on Crawford Avenue about midway between Madison Street and The Lake Street Elevated (or Lake Branch) beginning in the early 1920's the house band for the establishment was directed by saxophonist Jules Herbuveaux.
