Bill & The Bluenotes
Grey Blues Band
Isaac Scott Blues Band
Junior Earl & The Pearls
The illustrious Place Pigalle in the Pike Place Market was the nastiest, hippest, blues bar in the 1970’s.
Little Bill, Junior Earl and the Pearls, Isaac Scott Blues Band, Philharmonic Sam, the Grey Blues Band all played there. It was on the south corner of the market with its back windows looking out on Puget Sound and Alaskan Way 3 stories below.
One night while we were playing I looked up to see an intoxicated patron pick a keg of beer up and throw it out the windows to drop three stories onto Alaskan Way! It was often like the Country Bunker in the Blues Brothers movie.
