Dome Shadows
We are remembering one of Houston's most famous night clubs...

Here's a pic of the Pastels playing at the Dome Shadows. I picked this up in the Houston Architectural Forum along with the following pics and ad.

Lee Maye was acquired by the Houston Astros in 1965 and in the off season  made an appearance at the Dome Shadows, much to the annoyance of Judge Holheinze (sp). Marshall was doing just to
goat the  Judge.

Here's a U-Tube link to the Ramones. They played in the Dome Shadows in the late 1970's. This recording is from an unknown location in Houston. Could it be the Dome Shadows? Only the Shadow knows!

That is all I have for now. If you have any questions about the pictures, please feel free to call or email my any time. I will try to find more. I have at least 6 yrs if pictures- which most are from the Dome in the Seventies.
What a great place to hang out. I loved working there and coming inon my night's off and partying with everyone else.
Thanks so much for setting this up for all of us loyal DomeShadows fans and employees

Hi, Gary,
I am glad you liked all the pictures  that I sent. I do have more, I just have to find them.
I did want to add some additional info about another band that played at the dome while TC's band was playing in Wisconsin and Minneapolis. They went to play at a chain of supper clubs -the entertainment was run by my now husband-Bill Champion.
The name of the band was Allan Wayne and Machine. They were ffrom Louisianna. They were an excellent band.One of their members-Bobby Kimball- now and has been for awhile- with the great band TOTO. They played two different times in the 70's. I hope maybe someone out there might have some pictures of their band.
I really thought it was important to mention their names as a band that played there and everyone was crazy about them.
Thanks for doing alll of this for us lovers of our time at the Dome. My favorite time was under the onwer ship- of Paul Berlin. He was the best boss I have ever had at any club, or anywhere else. He is a great man, and will always be!!!!!
I will email more pictures  later.
Thanks again, Kathy
