The show will see Billy joining his original band mates
Don Summers (bass), Dan Mitchell
(drums) and Tom Moore (keyboard) at the B.B King Blues Club &
Grill in New York City on 30th March.
The Houston-based band were founded by Gibbons in the mid-60's
and opened for both The Doors and Jimi Hendrix.
However the band only ever released the one full album, 1968's
'Flash' and disbanded a year later after both
Don Summers and Tom Moore were
drafted into the US Military.
Soon after Summers and Moore left the 'Sidewalks,' Gibbons went
on to form the very first incarnation of ZZ Top
with Dan Mitchell and keyboardist Lainer
Grieg. Although by early 1970 both Mitchell and Greig
parted ways with Gibbons, and Frank Beard and
Dusty Hill replaced them.
