Artefact

I saw quite a few gigs at this excellent venue in the mid 70's including : Rufus ( feat Chaka Khan ), Edgar Broughton Band, Argent, Tangerine Dream, etc. The adjoining dance floor would revolve to accomodate audience capacity ! Brilliant.

Phoenix76 Says –
this was regular night out for me and my mates, not only concerts but also the disco nights.
leaping about to the weird and wonderful. with the massive dancefloor heaving with sweaty rockers.

I saw Manassas here with Stephen Stills, they played for 3 hours. side 4 was the encore !!
and I got Dallas Taylor's drumstick has a memento.

and the Chuck Berry show when he was hours late, played for 45 minutes and walked off. he would only go on stage if they paid him the cash up front.
later on, I luckily got to see him again at Buxton festival.
my ding-a-ling, oh please.

i seemed to have missed the fights in the car park
though we were followed once by a group of tossers who wanted to know.
" weirdos what you after."

and good fun.

John
keep the faith.
