This night was the first of David Bowie's appereances under his famous artistic name, since he had played at the Marquee extensively from May 1963 as Davie Jones with his bands the King Bees and the Manish Boys. Bowie and his new band started a new residency at the Marque on the 4th of September 1965 and after 8 performances as Davy Jones and the Lower Third he changed the name on this night. During this year David Bowie also performed at the Marquee club in numerous occasions and on a casual basis with the T-Bones and other artists, including The High Numbers, later known as The Who, and blues legend Sonny Boy Williamson.
