Cheech & Chong/Muddy Waters concert at swim club here. (And Ike & Tina, others.)


Cheech & Chong/Muddy Waters concert at swim club here. (And Ike & Tina, others.)

A friend of mine years ago told me that he saw a blues legend Muddy Waters concert at a swim club in the Roxborough section of Philadelphia. I had forgotten about it until now, so I decided to look it up. It did indeed occur, with comedy legends Cheech & Chong on the bill as well, on August 5, 1973. Some places on the Web suggest that the swim club was a swimming pool night club at night.

Comments : Newspapers.com indicates that the Ike & Tina Turner 18-piece review played here. There is also indication that the Stylistics did as well, but I have a vague recollection that maybe that show was canceled. If you have better information, please comment.
