Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, with Steel Mill the sole act on the bill. This is the earliest verified public performance to feature new member Steven Van Zandt on bass. By 1970 the once-hip national Hullabaloo chain of discothèques had veered in a decidedly top 40 direction, far removed from the progressive rock of Steel Mill. Tom Yolton, guitarist for Richmond band Mercy Flight, has jokingly commented…"when word came out that Steel Mill was playing Hullabaloo everyone said…where the hell is that? It turned out it was well away from the VCU campus. It was a club with mirrors on the walls. I remember asking someone in the band about it later and getting some reply like "Oh man, did that suck…nobody was there and they wanted us to play dance music."
