    Les Brown was the orchestra leader for the first season (1964-1965). Nick Vanoff, having worked with Mitchell Ayers on the "Perry Como Show" in New York, hired Mitchell as the Hollywood Palace orchestra leader for the following seasons of shows (1965-1969). During the summer 1969 hiatus of the Hollywood Palace TV show, Mitchell Ayers was in Las Vegas working with Connie Stevens' Landmark Hotel nightclub appearance. On a mid-evening, September 5, 1969, crossing the Las Vegas Strip in front of the Landmark Hotel, Ayers was struck and killed by a vehicle. Mitchell Ayers' conducting position was replaced by Nick Pietro for the final season 1969-1970.

    "Tina, the baby elephant" circus performer was the only performer/act to have the most repeated performances on the seven year series. "Tina" was invited each season, sometimes returning two to three times each season, for a return engagement. The trainer and Tina's crew would wash, bath, and groom Tina in the adjacent parking lot, where Tina's trailer-dressing room parked. Before each rehearsal and performance day, the crew would take a blow torch burning off any hair on the baby elephant's body. The blow torch flame did not damage, nor burn, the elephant's hide. "Shaved" was their terminology for the make-up preparation.

    Nick Vanoff fired the first Hollywood Palace "Billboard Girl" after the fifth show. She was a member of the Tom Hansen Dancers, appearing on the CBS Red Skelton Hour, which became a scheduling problem for the leggy curvaceous showgirl. After missing air-show rehearsals, and showing up late in the taping day, Vanoff replaced the performer, the following week, with Raquel Welch. Patrick Curtis accompanied Raquel when she was scheduled for rehearsal and show taping day. Patrick, always sitting in the last row aisle seat adjacent to the orchestra area, became a fixture, like a "Brinks Guard" guarding his property! These "Hollywood Palace Billboard" segments, at the end of the variety hour, introduced Raquel Welch. Raquel, soon noticed by agents and movie producers, was on the series for several years before quitting the assignment.
