The 100 Club, London April 1965 gig flyer/pamphlet
Vintage original first printing gig flyer/pamphlet advertising upcoming concerts at the legendary 100 Club on Oxford Street in London during April 1965. It has been authentically signed inside by American jazz trombonist Vic Dickenson (1906—1984), who would appear at the club on Friday, 23rd April, accompanied by Terry Lightfoot’s Jazzmen. For all his lively musical talent, Dickenson was a laconic man who often liked to be alone between sets. During his long association with bands at Eddie Condon’s, he would often retire to a single chair that sat in a small alcove outside the men’s room, instead of gathering with fellow musicians in the band room. When men mistook him for the men’s room attendant and offered him money, he took it! Dickenson died in New York City in 1984 at the age of 78. Also appearing at the 100 Club during April 1965 were the likes of Earl Hines, Kenny Ball, Alex Welsh, Monty Sunshine, The Graham Bond Organisation, The Artwoods, and others.
