The site for the induction was carefully chosen for a special reason as the prestigious Shangri-La hotel Vancouver sits on the original property where Isy’s Supper Club once shone like a beacon of night club entertainment. Judy Ginn Walchuk and Jim Walchuk performed at Isy’s Supper Club many times over the years.
