"Back in 70 and 71 I had a band called "My Brother's Band" as our road warrior musicians pushed towards the PC beaches our goal was none other than 'The Right of Passage" Grow up at the College of The Old Dutch Inn. We played there, stayed there and most of all grew up there as in , Jamming, Girling, Stripteasing and of course being in the 70's. Betty was a true jem and the bar maids were awesome and I can attest the Strippers were every bandmates fantansy, or should I say, we were just being freshmen at Old Dutch Inn. Princess Tanyeka, God's of Fire with her side kick Babaloo, no audience praticapater could hold onto her pulsing hips as Babaloo drove a conga beat, Then came Desiree, she had that Ann Margret Look, she knew how too make young fake ID holders squirm but the one that got everyone out of control was Monkey Girl, she would bring out this stuffed monkey, the kind you won for your girlfriend at the state fair, well lets just say it was as good as Porky's. My Brother's Band grew up on the Panama City Beaches with bands like Black Dog, Thunder Chicken, Cross and Tumbleweed all graduates from The College of The Old Dutch Inn. When the Dutch closed down we moved onto The Beach Party on Thomas Drive but that's a story for another time, there is so many stories too tell about the Dutch and our good times in 70 and 71 so fire away beach bums and if you have photo's share them cause they are great memories that should not die."~ Paul Macfarlane
