Info & Setlist | Venue

The Castiles audition at Café Wha?, which they pass. This sets in motion what would turn out to be an extensive series of about thirty shows at Café Wha? over the next fifteen months. Tex Vinyard mentioned in an interview that "My Generation" was the song that got the band the gig. The club, located at 115 MacDougal Street in the west village of New York City, opened in 1959. Under the guidance of owner/manager Manny Roth, it became a prominent, cutting edge musical venue during the 1960s. A plethora of famous musicians played there (many of them unknowns who were just getting started). The now legendary club still operates to this day in the same location as it did all those years ago. Bob Dylan’s first ever stage performance (a walk-on) in New York took place at the Café Wha in January 1961. See our News tab for an extensive overview of The Castiles’ history at this club.
