The Artwoods gigs 1963-1968

Welcome to another posting of a series of gig listings for 1960s bands. None of these lists is exhaustive and my idea is to add to them in the comments section below over time. They are here for future researchers to draw on and, where possible, I have added the sources used, whether they are newspapers or websites.  I have also added a few interesting bits of information and will add images in time.

 I’d like to encourage band members to get in touch to share memories, or for anyone to send corrections/clarifications to my email: Warchive@aol.com 

Equally important, if you attended any of the gigs below or played in the support band, please do leave your memories below in the comments section for future historians to use. If you know of any missing gigs, please add them too, if possible, with the sources.

6 thoughts on “The Artwoods gigs 1963-1968”

  1. Thank you very much for posting the gigs for these English bands. A much as I love American Garage Rock, I lover the 60’s mod stuff even more.

  2. Artwoods
    1964 – Wednesday night residency at Beat City, London
    Early 65 – UK tour with PJ Proby
    Feb 65 – UK club tour backing Mae Mercer (US Blues singer)
    Sept 65 – UK club tour backing Bo Diddley
    1965 – also supposed to have backed Howlin’ Wolf & Little Walter on UK club dates
    Monday 11 th July 66 – Bluesville Club, Ipswich (have copy of a poster)

  3. Mercer also performed and recorded in the UK, most notably cutting an EP produced by Mike Vernon in London for Decca in 1964. When she toured France and other European countries the following year, she was backed by the Artwoods –
    Mae Mercer obituary The Independent 26th Nov 2008

  4. I have done considerable research into the Artwoods and related bands. Don Wison Quartet, Road Runners, , Redd Bludd Bluesicans, St Valentines Day Massacre Art Wood Combo from 1960 etc.
    Should anyone have any articles, posters, reviews, photographs, recordings etc I would appreciate anything that you may have. The project I am working on is with and for the surviving band members and family.
    Unfortunately, I think I have made a mistake on one batch of gigs in 1966 I think,. I believe they are the wrong year, but have to go through everything again to correct.
    Thanks, Tony.

  5. Forgot to mention. If appropriate. Trying to locate a recording that was made at the 100 Club in late 1965 or early 1966. A later unreleased recording called Zeta Twigs which was some music and other “stuff”. Finally a show called “Saturday Swings”, broadcast on December 19, 1964 with Sandra Brown. Thanks. I can provide my email address if required.

  6. The August 29, 1964 gig is a bit of a mystery. I cannot find anything out about the two day NORTH SEA SHUUFLE which was a boat trip from Harwich to Hook of Holland with a number of Jazz bands etc. No other details, or if in fact it took place.
