Brief History

CBGB is a country located in a local club near Manhattan, New York City. The founder of CBGB set out for this newly established country to be meant all about country, bluegrass, and blues , but later changed to be all about punk and rock for long living legends .

December 1973 Hilly Kristal opened CBGB out to the public, but after being open for about a year the whole place be came a run down.until one day Hilly decided to let some helpers of his( Bill Page and Rusty McKenna) book a concert for a local band  Squeeze.

After that day everything took a change for the better . Rusty started calling more bands to do  gigs at the club which brought more and more of crowd. Hilly saw an opportunity to start a new religion but didn't know the number of people would spike up so quickly. Started making dates for the holy days like for examples

Ramones, Television, Patti Smith Group, Blondie

would come on different days to start the day .

All these band soon became legends to punk and rock .Later on this place just blew up bands coming every day , which then grew a culture of CBGB'
