Panther Hall

Former Location –
Early on, this was known as a country music venue, but there were a fair share of rock and rockabilly artists on their stage. Up a flight of stairs there you could enter “The Loft”, a bar for special guests and band members. The view of the stage and dance floor from up there was incredible and musicians would come from all over the United States to play here as well.

As its popularity as a country venue waned, the hall began catering to a younger crowd by creating “PANTHER A-GO-GO” and eventually had many Rock concerts there. A brief list of musicians that graced their stage:

Blue Cheer
Bo Diddley
Brownsville Station
The Byrds
Canned Heat
Delaney-Bonnie and Friends
Dr. Hook and The Medicine Show
Electric Light Orchestra
Fats Domino
Grass Roots
The Grateful Dead
Jefferson Airplane
Quicksilver Messenger Service
The Ramones
Sly and the Family Stone
Ten Years After
Ike and Tina Turner
Edgar Winter
Johnny Winter
The Zombies
ZZ Top

Panther Hall was closed in 1978.
