Some of the bands that performed at this place during those great years of NW music were:

 I graduated from Thurston High School in 1967 and saw many bands at the Eugene Armory

I saw The Wailers here no less than three times.  The acoustics were good, but nothing like the Torq Club.  We were one of the first bands to play at the Iron Bridge with their new recording equipment.

The Texas Playboys played at the Eugene Armory in Dec.1948.  Bob Wills was not there but his Brother Billie Jack was the drummer.
