Trivia: Where did ZZ Top play its first show together?


Recommended Posts

I heard this mentioned on one of the Houston Classic Rock stations the other day.


from Chron.com


On this date in February 1970 (February 15), ZZ Top played at a Knights of Columbus Hall on old U.S. 90, a gig booked by Beaumont radio personality Al Caldwell of KLVI, who would later also broadcast the band's first recordings.

This would be the band’s first show together with their now-iconic lineup of Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard installed. Gibbons started the band in late 1969 and the pieces soon came together.

Here is an article from the Beaumont Enterprise about a month ago talking about it as well




The picture is from a Little-Cypress Mauriceville yearbook when they played a prom there...notice their name is misspelled as "Zee Zee Top"
