6 thoughts on “Alphabetical List Of Performers At Lagoon”

  1. Just browsing the web for things on my Dad Jerry Gray, when I came across this info. I live in SLC now, but for years I carried a small souvenir knife (gold) with the inscription of the band and the opening at Lagoon, which I did not recognize until I moved here.

    Al Gray

  2. Very interesting! Would it be possible to submit a picture of the knife? I’m sure many others who come to this website would enjoy seeing it. If so, please contact me directly by using the ‘Contact’ page:

    Thanks for your comment!

  3. I know how frustrating it can be trying to find things like that. I appreciate your efforts either way. Thanks again!

  4. Saw Sir Douglas Quintet at Lagoon in ’68. Big Brother, The Doors and Jefferson Airplane were great. Jimi Hendrix blew us away. What a ‘bitchin’ time for Rock n Roll!
