A Complete List of Concerts at the Ludlow Garage 1969 – 1971


The first incarnation of the Ludlow Garage music venue hosted concerts from September 1969 to January 1971. Artists who performed there included the Allman Brothers, the Kinks, BB King, Alice Cooper, and the Stooges.

Some of the artists – including Santana, Mountain, the Incredible String Band, and Johnny Winter – played Woodstock just one month before the Ludlow Garage started presenting live music.

Some local acts also performed at the Ludlow Garage, which is located in Cincinnati, Ohio. Those groups included Blacklight Braille, whose macabre and colorful stage show bore some resemblance to Alice Cooper.  Sound Museum, who opened for Santana, included band members who worked with James Brown.
