Village Purple Onion
135 West 3rd Street, Greenwich Village, New York City, New York
The only evidence for this gig is a single photo, probably posed before or after the gig as Jimi and Hank are looking straight into the camera and there is no audience to be seen. The date is unknown 1 but since Nate Edmons (organ) and Marion Booker (drums) are in the band this shot probably dates from circa June - August 1966.

1 According to the caption in Curtis Knight's Hendrix biography "Jimi" this picture was taken at the Purple Onion. Though he also dates this to be from 1964 which is incorrect as he didn`t even meet Jimi before 1965.

Studio 1965
Pictures taken at Studio 76 probably in 1965, could also be 1966 as these are hard to date but 1965 would seem more likely. The 2nd shot is over exposed but it does look like the person on the left in the first picture would be the same person as the person on the right in the second picture?
