Welcome to TIME LINE: A record of all Bottom Line show

In this section of the website we plan to publish a complete listing of every performance at the club beginning with the opening day party all the way through the new millenium. The list will be broken down year by year and appear in installments as we collate the information, confirm its accuracy, and elicit remembrances and commentary from those who were there.

Our primary sources are Allan Pepper and Stanley Snadowsky, the owners of the club, inseparable partners for twenty-nine years in one of the longest running enterprises in the American music business. As you look down the schedule of our first year in operation, you start to feel like you're peering into a quarter century-old photo album....but the photos are all in your own imagination. Maybe you were at some of these shows. Maybe you still have some old vinyl in your collection by these artists, or maybe you were too young to be there, (Allan and Stanley's assistant wasn't born yet!) and you can only imagine what it was like.

One of the striking things about the list is the number of artists who have made appearances in 1974 that have also appeared twenty-nine years later at the club in the 2002-2003 season. They include: Al Stewart, Kenny Rankin, Asleep at the Wheel, Al Kooper, Leon Redbone, Loudon Wainwright III, Roger McGuinn, David Johansen (with the New York Dolls), Tower of Power, Doc Watson and of course, David Bromberg. There are several more, but you get the idea. A twenty-nine year career playing music is an amazing accomplishment in a business that eats its young. If browsing over these shows brings up any memories or thoughts you might like to share with our Bottom Line community, please feel free to email us, and with your permission we'll print some of your comments. The e-mail is BLTmailbox@aol.com. So without further ado....1998.
