Indian Puddin' 'n Pipe
It's a Beautiful Day
Tripsichord Music Box
Matthew Katz operated the San Francisco Ballroom for a year or two in Seattle (can't recall the address or part of town) in an old ballroom in '68-'69 as I recall, mostly to showcase bands he managed (It's A Beautiful Day, Indian Puddin' 'n Pipe, Tripsichord Music Box, Black Swan, etc.). From there came Seattle band Easy Chair with vocalist/bassist Jeff Simmons (ex-Tripsichord Music Box I think), who went on to play with Zappa.

Santa Cruz, CA 95061-7240 USAI played there with a band called Games in 1967 with all the Matthew Katz groups you have listed. I think it was the Encore Ballroom before it was SF Sound.

As far as I know no band that ever played there ever got paid.

San Francisco Sound was a club in Seattle at 1214 E Pike on Capitol Hill. The building is still there and the exterior is still pretty much intact, But it has been converted into a mini-storage facility. I managed the facility and have a friend who worked the light shows there.
