This awesome 70s tee is from Satelite Lounge in Cookstown, New Jersey. The bar was once a major venue for rock n roll bands from the 1960s through the 90s, including concerts by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Kiss, Chuck Berry, Ben E. King, The Platters, Jay & The Americans, Sly & The Family Stone, Steppenwolf, Molly Hatchet, The Young Rascals, Anthrax, and Twisted Sister. In its heyday, Satelite could accommodate up to 2,000 people, once the largest bar in New Jersey. 

Much of what Satelite is remembered for centers around the owner of the club, Carlo Rossi, including one story about Rossi threatening to kill Bruce Springsteen if he didn't play at Satelite on the agreed upon date. When Foghat played at Satelite, they ignored Rossi's requests to turn the music down, and he responded by pulling his gun out and shooting the amps. 

The back of this shirt features a graphic of two people dancing that reads, "Dancing Nitely Fri-Sat 'Til 6:00 AM." 

This shirt fits like a modern unisex adult Small. It has several small holes on the front, see pics.

 This item is from the estate of Craig MacGregor, the bassist for the band Foghat in the 1970s, 80s, and again in the 2000’s.  The item was owned by Craig, a collector of t-shirts, and stored for some time in a basement before it came into our possession.  As a result there may be some lingering basement odor. All items are authentic pieces of rock and roll history and in many cases are one-of-a-kind.  Further authentication and chain-of-custody can be provided upon request.
