Wish I had some more besides the shows and the LPs I still have.
BTW, Dumb musician question. Back in their peak what kind of guitars, amps and effects did John and Mickey use? What were the specs on Gatto's cat guitar and what became of it?

Though not a 'rock club' the demise of the Salty Dog reminds me of the razed OBI.

I just came across the site Home of the L.I. Music Hall of Fame

Check it out, it'll trigger a whole lot of memories. Even has the old beach clubs listed.

Default Hammerheads

Hammerheads was in West Islip on Sunrise Hwy. Hammerheads was the best rock club around. Two stages, two giant bars set up like old sailing ships and good cheap drink specials. It became Chevy's in the early 90's and was torn down after too many problems and loss of business in the DWI crackdown era.

Anyone remember Tooeys and Mad Hatter of Stony Brook?
