[ LUIS SANTANA | Times ]
In the theater, Davison paced the stage asking if anyone was with us while recording with his phone. After the sixth or so time he posed that question, we both heard what sounded like a man clearing his throat nearby. The sound was on Davison’s recording, too.
So, Davison again paced the stage, again asking if anyone was with us. Davison and I both heard what sounded like a woman replying, “Ya, ya, ya.”
We rewound the audio for a second listen.
We heard Davison asking if anyone was with us.
The tape muted just before the spot where we should have heard the woman’s voice. There wasn’t even background noise. It was as though the sound was sucked from the recording. Moments later, we heard the audio of us discussing the voice. Only the ghostly portion was missing.
Stamberger claims to have experienced similar occurrences at the Cuban Club. Tour members have captured clear photographs of ghosts, he said, but the image later became too distorted to make out.
Ghosts can manipulate soundwaves, Strange said, so could possibly steal audio evidence, or maybe Davison accidentally messed up the recording.
“I’d suggest going back again during the day and looking for reasons for the noises,” said Strange, who has not investigated the Cuban Club. She believes it is haunted, but remained neutral about what Davison and I experienced. “Stick around that night and ask the same thing at the same place.”
Pressed on if he believes ghosts spoke to us, Davison said he did not know, “but I think that ballroom is haunted.”
