  • DESCRIPTION

    Big Momma Thornton, March 21, 1969, Vulcan Gas Company. Photography by Burton Wilson.

    So many musicians supported the club but folks like Freddie King helped the club stay afloat with fre­quent gigs at the club. Local bands that made many appearances included Greezy Wheels, Shiva's Headband, Alvin Crow, Balcones Fault, Steam Heat and Too Smooth. 

    In 1972, Willie Nelson made his first appearance at the 'Dillo in what was a career changing gig. Friend Waylon Jennings followed and the AWHQ became known for being a place where the rednecks and the hippies gathered and put their differences aside because of the mutual love of music.
