From 1965 to 1968, the Inferno in Williamsville, NY brought a host of nationally known recording artists as well as local and regional music groups.
I remember seeing Junior Walker & the All Stars, Sly & the Family Stone, Gary Puckett & the Union Gap, Wilson Pickett, Bob Seger System, Paul Butterfield Blues Band just to name a few. Every Wednesday night, Wilmer Alexander & Dukes played to a packed house. The Rising Sons (later called the Raven) were the house band that played in the "small room"! Tony Galla of course was the lead singer.
Who else remembers the Inferno? How about those 16 ounce Iroquois drafts for 35 cents? How about the A Go Go girls in the "small room"?
