I was at that gig. My stub looks just like this one except mine has a bit more of the word Weather. And it was seat left 4 14
This show show did not actually happen on the 3rd.
Wayne was sick and the band stayed at the local Holiday Inn and performed on the following Thursday.
The show was great but I don’t remember who the drummer was???
Good info, Bill. You caused me to do a little research and I discovered that the rescheduled concert took place on Tuesday, Nov. 5. I found a review of the show which I have included in the media files.
Oh, that’s cool. Hard to remember 1974 at this late date. lol
I had also completely forgot that Fairport Convention and Caravan were supposed to play also.
That would have been great.
I do remember opening band Coal Kitchen. They were fun.
They had a guitar player named Rob Newhouse that went on to be in The Elvis Brothers.
The EB’s were the biggest thing in the midwest for a number of years and great fun.
They did this schtick on occasion where they would play for a few moments as The Weather Report Brothers. lol
Bill, forget to mention that the drummer should have been Darryl Brown.
