  1. Ciao Bruno, I have a list of gigs at the Galaxy Club, Basingstoke 1964 - 66 compiled retrospectively from adverts in a local paper. LJB & HC Men listed as appearing twice; 22/8/64 Town Hall with Westsiders and E Types, 3/7/65 Town Hall with local band Evil Eyes. Marquee lists LJB gig on Thurs. 1st July. Steampacket formed later same month. Any thoughts? Raz :-]

    1. Thanks Raz! I've added the two gigs at the Galaxy Club to m shows list and of course I give you the credit for the help!

      About Marquee, yeah, you're right, the band was listed on July 1, 1965 on the venue website, but I have also a complete shows list taken from the book "London Live" and they are not listed there, so I do not know if they play or not there that day. Still uncertain!

      About Steam Packet, yes they were formed later that same month, you see my band "family tree - shows list" that I've also posted in this blog? if not, check it out!

  2. Bruno, I have been trying to establish whether Rod Stewart came to Basingstoke! It seems pretty certain that he was in the line-up for 22/8/64. We know that he did a stint with the Soul Agents which seems to have ended in April '65 but none of the websites I've visited seem to know what Rod was doing between April and Steampacket's first gig on July 16th! Great site btw, I'll probably acquire more info about Galaxy Club gigs and I'll happily pass it on when I'm sure it's accurate. Cheers, Raz :-]

    1. Raz,

      Rod Stewart was certain there for the gig on August 22, 1964 as you can see in my band's family tree he left the band only later in late October 1964.

      About The Soul Agents, you also see my band's family tree and shows list in this blog? Rod was with them from early January 1965 to June 1965 (not April 1965).

      Between June 1965 when he left The Soul Agents to mid July 1965 when he formed The Steam Packet, Rod played just a couple of gigs as solo act backed by The Brian Auger Trinity (you know, it was like a pre-Steam Packet gigs), one on June 24 at the Birdcage Club in Southsea (with also Gary Garr that shared the vocals with Rod) and one on July 9 at the Eel Pie Island Hotel in Twickenham.

      Cheers,
      Bruno

  5. Does anyone have any additional dates/info for Sonny Boy Williamson in the UK 1963-1965? I have compiled some of the better known ones but would be grateful for anything else?
