Venues

Without club owners and the spaces they created there would have been no place to play. Some are big name, landmark nightclubs, but the story of venues also includes dozens of teen centers held in public school buildings, and CYO (Catholic Youth Organization) dances held in churches all around Baltimore.

This list is totally inadequate and incomplete. It is limited to those places where information is available to us. We welcome the stories of other places, large and small. They all have a place in the historical musical fabric of the city and surrounding counties, and special meaning to the musicians who played there. Tell us your story and we'll include it here ... and if you can dig up an old photo or two to illuminate the story, that makes it all the better.

These are some of the places where the music was made.
