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

The Guess Who
Iron Butterfly
The Ramones

Others ?

January 11, 1979 saw the only Rock And Roll Hall of Fame band that ever played there for sure!  The loudest concert I've ever been to.... Still. The strangest band and the weirdest music I'd ever experienced up to that point.  Some Navy guy was trashing a chair and doing contortions all by himself on the dance floor...What the hell is this? That started my love affair with....The Ramones!!  I saw them 9 times after that.

I saw Iron Butterfly in the Skyway Bar too.

I was a cocktail waitress in the late 70’s at the Skyway bar.  Heck, I may even have  taken your order.
