Born in Scotland, Mr. Smail immigrated lo Canada in 1903 and settled in Edmonton in He held various posts with the city from 1907 until his re- tirement as city treasurer in 1949.

The foundation of Studio City Musical Ltd., was laid in 1937 when Don McKenzie and lus wife, Sandy, formed Tumac Enlerpriscs to handle the Band of Sound in which Don played. By 1969, Tumac was booking three other bands and Don and two other members of the Band pf Sound, Albert Rasko and Art Price, created the present agen- cy with offices in Don's base- ment. QUIT JOGS A year later the three prin- cipals quit their jobs and, using the four clients as a base, went into the husiness fulltime. All had worked in the ac- counting business and combin- ing this background with their knowledge of (he entertainment field, they set down a course of action. "This province was loaded with untapped says Don, who at 30 is the oldest of the trio. "But no one had laken the time to promote it." "We hoped to provide a ve- hicle for local talent lo make the big time or at least obtain a public image."

The company offered person- alized service entertainment tailored lo suit each establish- ment's atmosphere and clien- tele and soon cornered the local night club business. In 1971, the agency bought out its major competitor in the one-nighter market ar.d gained a foothold in Calgary. Branches were established in Calgary, Red Deer and Penliclon, B.C.

A staff of 13 works out of spacious headquarters that oc- cupy half the second floor of a small business building in Ed- monton and four others man the three branch offices. "We have a policy of hiring only people who have a back- ground in entertainment and we insist they remain active in the Don says. "An en- tertainment background is ne- cessary if the staff is to cope with the problems faced by the entertainers or our busi- ness clientele."
