Owner: Robert "Spooley" Sprague
Once the only after hours live music club, open until 3:00am
The building still stands, a stark reminder of hundreds of GREAT times!
Griffin performs on New Year's Eve, 1977. Remember the low, cave-like stage?
The front door...
Here's a memory from Dan King:
Was there in 1978 a few times. Remember one night Chuck Berry’s daughter was singing with a band. Sounded great. I seem to remember she had purple hair…could be wrong on that point! A buddy of mine and I were playing foosball. We scored the fourth goal to go ahead 4-0. One of the guys we were playing slammed his hand against the wall and said something to his partner about getting the 38 out of the truck. My buddy and I never said anything to each other, but lost the game 5-4.
