The Poor House North

Beginning in early 1972, Wilkesbury Brigade and the renown live band club on Old Liverpool Road in Liverpool, NY, "The Poor House North" were synonymous cornerstones of the Central New York rock and roll scene. Performing every Saturday night for over 200 consecutive weeks, Wilkesbury rocked the night away at the PHN. They drew record crowds week after week with the all time record of 756 people on one warm early summer night. Dancing began at 9:30 or 10:00 p.m. and continued until 1:30 or 2:00 a.m. Sunday morning ! Every person went home thoroughly exhausted from the fun and dancing. This stint at the PHN by WBB was the longest consecutive weekly performance of any group at one venue in Central New York.
