Former Location –
Creedence Clearwater Revival played their first gig here when it was called New Monk. When the owner of the Keystone Korner in San Francisco took it over in 1972, he renamed it Keystone Berkeley.

Many famous acts played here including Van Morrison, The Doobie Brothers, Tower of Power, John Cale, the Greg Kihn Band, The Talking Heads, Metallica, Canned Heat and Michael Bloomfield.

Jerry Garcia played the Keystone Berkeley in excess of 200 times between 1972 and 1984, more then any other venue he played at as a solo artist or with The Jerry Garcia Band or of course, The Grateful Dead.
