Welcome to the website dedicated to the history and legacy of one of Britain’s most famous small clubs. 

On 1st December 1961 Gordon Band opened 76 High Street, Burton-on-Trent as The 76 Club. 

During the next 20 years the future musical direction of members or visitors to The Club was almost certainly influenced, altered or moulded. 

Click on the Gigs tab to access nearly 20 years of musical history. A multitude of musical tastes are covered: from Gene Vincent to Motorhead, from The Merseybeats to The Sex Pistols.

Please support the development of the site as it illustrates the Musical Heritage of this legendary club by emailing ideas and your memories.
