New Years Eve is alway a great time to catch a live band. You never know, someone you see for the first time on NYE could go on to be big stars. Here’s a list of bands / artists that gave their first performance on NYE.
Janis Joplin, 1961 at a Beaumont TX halfway house.
The Beach Boys, 1961 The first time they played under the Beach Boys name, Long Beach Civic Auditorium for a Richie Valens memorial dance.
The Kinks, 1963 at London’s Lotus House restaurant.
Band of Gypsys ( Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Miles, Billy Cox), 1969 The Fillmore East NYC.
AC/DC, 1973 Chequers Bar in Sydney.
The Cars, 1976 Pease Air Force Base.
Did you notice how many of these artists are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Maybe something for new bands to consider….
