Back in 1970+ does anyone remember THE SOUL PATROL. They played at the bar on Belmont across from the park, on the east side , right as you came under the over pass, called The El Dorado?

I was keyboard player for a band called The 3rd Chapter back in the 70's. We played The New Shalimar club on First & McKinley. Also, The Point After (which later became the Keyboard Lounge.)

I remember a band called The Shag, or as on the posters called Shag. They were first called The Lavender Hill Mob. A very good band. Denny Burt was the Lead Guitarist, and David Chevoya was the Harmonica player. They had a girl singer at one time. They opened for Big Brother and the Holding Company when Janis Joplin was just getting started. Thank you very much for mentioning them. The whole Fresno area as well as the Central Valley has had many well known players. In Merced The Brouges became Quicksilver Messenger Service. Tom Johnston of the Doobie Brothers is from Visalia, and Steve Perry from Journey is from Leemore/Hanford. And let me add Fresno has some of the best Automotive artist on the planet.

Does anyone remember Duggan's Lounge on Abbey about one block north of Belmont? It was on the right side of Abbey between Belmont and the split with Blackstone. My wife and I spent quite a few Saturday nites there in the late sixties.

Other nightspots of the 70s that had live music includes the Smugglers Inn and the Tropicana (usually called "The Trop") on Blackstone. Sometimes "Fresno musicians made good" would return to jam with the local band, such as members of Tower of Power. For the laid back, non-disco crowd, there was the Wild Blue Yonder in the Tower District. For derelicts, there was The Blue Front on the downtown end of Blackstone (or would that be Abby?)
