The Buzz Club – Complete (ish) List!

I have been writing about The Buzz Club, going into detail about each gig, with fliers, photos, memories and music on this blog. I’ve decided at this stage to publish the definitive list as I have it. This has taken AGES to compile. At the time, in the early years,  I wrote down the gigs down as they happened. I stopped doing this in 1990, so for a few years now Danny and myself have been Googling, asking people and digging very deep in our memories to complete the list.

I’m publishing this now as there are a few gaps in 1992 and 1993. It could be that we didn’t do anything in those months or it could be we have simply forgotten. If by chance anyone reading this can help – did you play, were you there, I would be very grateful if you could get in touch please!

I’ll still be writing about all of the gigs in detail, but here we go – the Complete (ish) List!
