The Electric Collage was a popular addition to 1960's style music concerts.and over a million people saw it.
Shows were produced at large venues such as Piedmont Park, Atlanta Municipal Auditorium, Georgian Terrace Ballroom (later known as the Electric Ballroom), Chastain Park Amphitheater, Daytona Beach Pier, both Atlanta Pop Festivals, the Texas Pop Festival and many small venues around the south east United States.
Many nights were spent 'painting the walls with light' at the old Atlanta Municipal Auditorium. That could be called "Fillmore South" since so many good rock concerts took place there. One show in particular with Steppenwolf stands out in many people's memories. Jimi Hendrix played there. And so did every big name that came through town.
They did the light show at the historic Piedmont Park free concert where the Allman Brothers played before they were 'discovered'. They were on a City Parks Department trailer with hastily purchased bed sheets as a screen on the back wall.
Then there was the "The Turkey Trip" one Thanksgiving at the Georgian Terrace Hotel when The Allmans were awesome with Dwane at his prime. Every band on the way to success has a moment when the music finally gels and everything works perfect. That was the Allman's that night. Also it was one of the Electric Collage's best shows. The crowd was totally involved. The synergy in the room was working at top capability.
