Does any body remember the Black Dome on Vine, a couple doors down from William Howard Taft Rd/Calhoun St. It was located right across from a future club called Reflections. It did not serve alcohol.

I remember the black dome ,I worked there for awhile. It was a great place to enjoy some of the best music around at that time.Both local and national bands performed there,like procul harem,the James gang with Joe Walsh,and Dr.John,Alice Cooper,and many more.Local groups like The Sacred Mushroom with the Goshorn Brothers,Quick,Quick,The Glass Wall,and Balderdash performed there as well.I was very fortunate to have been associated with many good friends,and lucky to have met some of these famous musicians.I even got to jam with a few of them ( I am also a musician ) It was a great time in my life.

Just sitting around listening to James Gang and thinking about their almost monthly appearances at the Black Dome ("no holding").
I've often wondered how many people remembered or appreciated what happend there. Small cover, big music! I didn't drink and enjoyed sitting on the floor, no more than 40 feet from the stage to watch John Mayal, Joe Walsh, Dr. John, Charlie Musslewhite and the house band Quik Quik (so many other wasted weekends and bands).
Truly a very fond memory.

It was the best place to hear some of the best music around without spending a lot of cash to hear these very talented people.No alcohol was served at the dome, just soft drinks,and snacks,and pizza.It was the music,the people,(some already buzzed)that really made it a good time.

Default Black dome / Jim Tarbell at motr discussion

Just went to the motr club on main st.Jim Tarbell was speaking about the music in this city and the many clubs that were around through the sixties and seventies especially the black dome,and the ludlow garage plus others in the area at that time.He is going to speak again next Sunday at 2 pm.at motr.Jim Tarbell leased and ran the ludlow garage in the 1970's he had information to share. the black dome was originally owned,or bought by the people who owned the mug club another Clifton club at the time.The black dome was also a couple of years before the ludlow garage arrived conceived by Jim Tarbell.This was a very informative talk about the clubs,and the changing music scene at that time.

Hey Guys, Just signed on to this site. I discovered it while looking at some posting of the Cincinnati music past. The Dome
played a very big part of that. Dave I sent you a personal message as well. We have to have known each other. I also worked at the Dome as well as I was the Saber's equipment manager for a number of years before they split. Hell, Larry Butler and I built the Dome's stage. I also can tell you how the Black Dome got it's name. Another story, but true, it was named after a apartment that was in the next door apartment building that another friend of mine was living and decided to paint his whole room BLACK. Art ,(drummer for the Saber's, came up with, it looked like a " Black Dome." The name stuck and we had the Black Dome) Someone also asked about the Dome when it was up the street at the old Mug Club and had heard that Hendrix played there opening night. Yes he did. One set and left. The Saber's brought him to Xavier for his first concert in Cincinnati and had him come down to make a appearance for them. He did. Very late, but did. The Dome was only at the Mug Club a few weeks and ten had to find another location. Ended up for the best. So as they say, THEM WHERE THE GOOD OLD DAY. Take care and safe everyone. Ron
