The Swimming Pool Qs at The Rockafellas Reunion, 1022 Senate Street (The Tin Roof): 16 April 2011   2 comments

Posted at 1:54 am in entertainment,events,historic,nightclub

The Swimming Pool Qs played the Rockafellas Reunion at The Tin Roof on Senate Street last Saturday. I saw them first at Bell Camp and then at Rockafellas back in the day, and a number of times since then. (Most recently at Doc's Gumbo Grille, just a block or so from the Tin Roof).

I'm afraid I did not stick around for any of the other bands' sets though I'm sure they were great.

The Qs played a fairly short set Saturday (somehow I missed the fact that they were at Wet Willie's on Friday), hitting both The Deep End and the A&M era, but not 2003's Royal Academy of Reality.

The sound was pretty good for an outside venue. The rain had stopped about an hour before, and the sun finally started to come out about the time the Qs took the stage. I have to admit the crowd was pretty sparse, but both the audience and the band seemed to be having a good time.

  1. Sorry I missed it. Please tell me the crowd was bigger than what shows in your photos.

    I remember seeing Jeff Calder walking on Gervais St. from Five points to where the band was staying at The Townhouse a couple of times when the Qs were playing in town and I would always stop and give him a ride.

    My wife and I met at Rockafellas in the summer of '86. We just had our 20th anniversary and our son just turned 13.

  2. The Qs played at the Coal Company in 5 Points a couple of times in the early 80s. Good house rockin' party band.

    Congratulations, Dennis.
