  1. Molly Pitcher says:

    I could be wrong but I seem to remember the venue for the 1978 appearance of McGuinn, Clark and Hillman as being The Madison Theatre not The Palace Theatre. Anyone else at that show?.

  2. Greg says:

    Molly,

    I was wondering about that myself. I know MC&H did indeed play the Madison with the Ravellers (featuring Eddie Angel) opening, but I can’t recall if they also played a show at the Palace. If not, then it was definitely the Madison Theater.

  3. I also remember M,C & H at The Madison and I think that it was 1978. And what a fine Riverfront Jazz Fest in 2011.
