The Metro St. Louis Live Music
Gravois Road, Sunset Hills MO
The Pool was a venue for the great local soul bands of the 60's. It sat next to Sunset Ford, where the plaza with JP's Corner bar sits now.
I got this from Mike Waterman:
I wish I had photos, but I used to drive from Washington (MO)—usually on Friday nights in 1965 and 1966—to watch the bands. Gene Neal & the Rocking Kings were my favorite.
...and this from Bob Gleason:
I remember going out here in the early 60’s for great R&B music. Benny Sharp usually played on Friday nights. In the winter, there was a barn where they played and in the summer they played outside on the pool deck. They had about six or seven pieces and a couple singers. Awesome...........
