|This Flushing club was mentioned on the FB NY Rocks group quite a while ago. I asked for more info, and a fellow who used to work there kindly offered some terrific details. I know I took notes, but now I can't find 'em, nor is the search function on NY Rocks bringing the post back up. Dang. All I can remember is that it was located on the 2nd floor of its building (17 steps up, natch), and that Fleetwood Mac also played there (Nov. 23-24, 1969). I've managed to Google only two other references to it, involving Billy Joel and Haystacks Balboa. I didn't find any other ads for it, but I may go back and triple-check some later '69 issues.|
|IIRC, they also had a Rego Park location on Queens Blvd. across from Alexander's in the '70s and '80s.|
